I never ate Pop Rocks much as a kid. I didn’t give into the Pop Rocks/Coke exploding stomach hype, I was just more of a Fun Dip type of girl. But for some reason, I was incredibly drawn to Dairy Queen’s Grape Kool-Aid Explosion Blizzard. I think the grape Kool-Aid helped, because I do love me some grape Kool-Aid. A lot. Needless to say, I was pretty distraught when they pulled that from their line up.
I didn’t need to be sad for too long, though, because that very same year, Ben and Jerry’s was selling KaBerry KABOOM! It wasn’t Grape Kool-Aid Explosion, but it had the right blend of ice cream and berry (I’m more of a fruit dessert than a chocolate dessert person) with the awesomeness of Pop Rocks. But then that quickly disappeared too…
I feel like I may be the only person who likes Pop Rocks. Take, for example, this awesome candy I heard about last week. This awesome candy which I had to buy four bars of.
Normally I’d be uncomfortable buying that much chocolate. I feel like chocolate is a silly little luxury that I shouldn’t be allowed to spend money on. But alas, these were easy to buy. Why?
BECAUSE THEY’RE ON FREAKING CLEARANCE!
Why does every awesome Pop Rocks treat disappear just when I start liking it? I don’t really like eating just plain Pop Rocks. I can live without Pop Rocks until I find out someone has made something with them. I’m so annoyed I can hardly think straight. Also, I’m starting to smell banana even though I haven’t had any banana, but Paula Deen is making Banana Pie on TV right now… I think I’m going crazy. Maybe I should lay down and cuddle with Mister for awhile…..
