Pop Rocks Cotton Candy Is the Best Idea Ever

Pop Rocks Cotton Candy Is the Best Idea Ever

Creators of the (self-proclaimed) world's largest gummy bear have spawned a crazy, Pop Rocks-cotton candy combination

When ranking the list of favorite childhood sweets, Pop Rocks might top the list. So for the indulgent kid in us all, the latest creation from Vat 19 is just the thing to get us on a sugar high.

The guys behind supposedly the world's largest gummy bears have released Poppin' Cotton Candy, with the classic spun sugar mixed with different flavors of Pop Rocks. The commercial, which launched yesterday on YouTube, has already gone viral, and two flavors are already sold out.

"Poppin' Cotton Candy is currently available in: Blue Raspberry, Hawaiian Coconut, Strawberry, and Tropical Pina Colada," the website advertises, with strawberry, watermelon, and tropical punch Pop Rocks all mixed in between sugar. Not healthy, but kind of an amazing concept. Blue Raspberry and Hawaiian Coconut are already sold out, but 32 ounces of one flavor goes for $2.99. Or simply bring a pack of Pop Rocks along the next time you head to your county fair.

Pop Rocks

Pop Rocks were accidentally invented in 1975 by William Mitchell, a food scientist at General Foods. He made the discovery while trying to design an instant soft drink, when he put some sugar flavoring mixed with carbon dioxide in his mouth. The exploding candy became a cultural phenomenon after it hit the market.

Small amounts of carbonation were released when the candy was placed in the mouth, causing both a mild "exploding" sensation and resulting in a satisfying "sizzling" noise kids loved.

An urban legend quickly spread that Mikey, the little boy from the Life cereal commercial (shown below), had died while eating Pop Rocks and Coca Cola at the same time. It was rumored that the combination of the two carbonated products exploded in his stomach.

Pop Rocks were taken off the market for awhile and eventually disappeared in 1983, thus adding to the "truth" that the it really happened. Kraft Foods brought Pop Rocks back in 1985 under the name of "Action Candy." Pop Rocks are now marketed under their original name.

And, yes, Mikey is alive and well and living in New York. Scroll down for an ABC News video.
