Remember Pop Rocks Candy?  My first taste of Pop Rocks was in the 70's.  It was like carbonated candy that caused your tongue to tingle.  We thought it was SO cool to open our mouths while it was dissolving and hear the popping noises.  I was excited when I had the chance to introduce my daughter to the candy when she was younger.  Now, you can incorporate the fizzy, popping candy into a float for 4th of July reintroduce them to everyone, thanks to Taste of Home.

This will be a perfect, unique and memorable addition to your Independence Day celebration, Firecracker Floats!!
