Pop Rocks

Pop Rocks, one of the most popular candies on the market, pops and sizzles in the mouth, leaving a slight tingling sensation. This is due to the tiny high-pressure bubbles that become trapped inside the candy during processing. The candy dissolves in the mouth, releasing carbon dioxide from the tiny bubbles; hence the popping and sizzling.

true, thinking of it I have not seen pop rocks in retail stores recently. but when you can't find candy in the grocery store, you can usually find them at gas stations.

Where are pop rocks modernly sold?

User Avatar
They are sold at many special candy shops, mostly ones that only sell candy. They are not sold at target, or places like that. But the cheapest place to buy them would be a dollar store, like dollar tree. I bought a pack of three for a dollar, vs a local candy store where i bought one pack for $1.10

What is the difference between the pop rock drugs and the real pop rocks?

User Avatar
'Pop rock drugs' is a form of methamphetamine. Some drug labs will attempt to 'brand' their particular version of the drug by coloring it. Real pop rocks is a candy made, primarily, from sugar and lactose(milk sugar), and is designed to give a 'fizzy' sensation in your mouth.

Are pop rocks dangerous?

User Avatar
No, they are entirely safe for eating. ACtually, many people believed that if you were to eat them whole, you'd explode. This is untrue. Eating Pop-rocks will only produce a small amount of gas inside your Stomach (About a baseballs size) and should not irritate the lining around it.

What happens when soda is mixed with pop rocks?

User Avatar
well because there is carbon dioxide in the pop rocks and there is alot of carbonation in soda it causes a reaction of foaming up. if you were to put a packet of pop rocks in a 16oz coca cola bottle and quickly put a ballon over it you would see how much carbonation is really there. so try it and maybe it will help you answer our question better!

Is pop rocks exploding on your tongue a chemical reaction?

User Avatar
No, it is not a chemical reaction. Pop rocks simply melt in your mouth and release trapped CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) out into your mouth, and this release is what causes you to hear a pop, much as in popping a balloon. A chemical reaction requires a substance to chemically change. Since the pop rock simply melts, it can always be cooled and would re-solidify. If this were to be a chemical reaction, the enzymes in your mouth, or the water, would have to change the pop rock candy in a way that the atoms of the molecules that make it up would re-arrange to form CO2, leaving behind a totally different substance in your mouth after. Note that this change would not be easily reversible - another tell-tale method of detecting a chemical reaction.

Asked in Food Science, Pop Rocks

Why do pop rocks fizz in your mouth?

User Avatar
Pop Rocks are essentially hard candy (like Jolly Ranchers and Livesavers) mixed with an unusual ingredient: carbon dioxide. In normal hard candies, a sugary syrup is mixed, boiled, then allowed to cool and harden. In Pop Rocks, the boiled syrup is mixed again, this time with pressurized Co2, leaving air bubbles in the finished candy. When you eat Pop Rocks, the sugar dissolves in the heat of your mouth, popping the air bubbles and releasing the Co2 gas. This creates the unique Pop Rocks "fizzing" sensation.

What are the chemicals that make pop rocks pop?

There is no chemical in pop rocks it's just CO2 (carbon dioxide) that makes up the pop rocks.When you put pop rocks in your mouth they so the heat basically forces the CO2 (carbon dioxide) out which sounds like it's poping.

Why does the soda explodewhen you put pop rocks in it?

User Avatar
Because then the soda would melt the pop rocks therefore forcing the pop rocks to let it's CO2 (carbon dioxide) out because the pop rock basically cinsists of CO2 (carbon dioxide).Thats why you here a pop when you put pop rocks in your mouth.

The pop rocks fizz and sizzle and give out CO2 just like they do in your mouth. They do not kill you as the popular myth says.

Will pop rocks and soda kill you?

User Avatar
No it wont explode your stomach, it will just make popping sounds. However just don't eat too much at a time because they create a lot of gas when put together and your stomach might not be able to handle all of the pressure inside of it.
