My Favorites- 1 of 10

For me there is one candy that won my heart as a child and I love it almost more as an adult.

In my mind there is nothing better. if i'm having a bad day nothing cheers me up like POP ROCKS... you can't help but smile when there are delicious little candies dancing in your mouth.

people seem to have forgotten about these little packages of happiness but every time i have POP ROCKS and someone sees them they are almost instantly excited and haven't had them since they were kids. even though i don't want to share my candy i love seeing the look of happiness when people are reunited with the JOY of POP ROCKS!

here is a recipe to try...
Exploding Strawberry Daiquiri
1/2 oz Strawberry schnapps
1 oz Light rum
1 oz Lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
2 oz Strawberries
Drop Strawberry Pop Rocks on top

do yourself a favor. go buy some. on a gloomy day like today everyone needs a smile.
and since i'm the one that reminded you of them... feel free to buy some for me too!

I myself, have not had POP ROCKS in over 20 years...but I remember them very well. I loved that sensation as a child...Maybe it's about time for a little treat...

the bulk place at south common has watermelon and strawberry flavored and most 7-11 and Mac's stores have them but usually they have the wild berry and fruit punch flavors... yes i'm obsessed with them...LOL.
