Pop Rocks are a classic. They're certainly more of a novelty than a filling candy treat, but there's something undeniably irresistible about having them fizz and crackle away on the tongue. The original Pop Rocks normally come in fruity flavours, but today I found this limited edition chocolate flavour, which certainly seemed like an interesting change. Not too strange, as a lot of chocolate bars containing popping candy have popped up in recent years, but let's see what it's like to have popping candy containing chocolate.
The popping candy is as good as ever, crackling away on the tongue and in the throat (drink Coke for full effect, will not cause stomach to explode). The little pieces of candy are coated in milk chocolate, resulting in a whole load of spherical chocolate treats, and I wasted no time in emptying them into my mouth. The only problem I found was that some of the chocolate didn't actually have popping candy inside, or if it did, it certainly didn't work very well. As for the taste of the chocolate, it's alright. It' no Cadbury, sure, and does start to get a little sickly, but it was certainly tasty enough for the duration of this packet. These Pop Rocks may not have the same kick as the original flavours, but the chocolate coating is a nice twist that makes for some pretty nice candy.
My rating: 4/5
