Ok, by now we all know Mikey (the kid from the Life cereal commercial) did NOT die downing a packet and finishing it off with a Coke chaser. In fact, he’s currently an attorney in NYC. However, there are plenty of other things to discover about this fizzy favorite at poprockscandy.com.
Like who invented pop rocks? General Foods Chemist William A. Mitchell in 1956.
Why do Pop Rocks really pop? How can you create a Harry Potter-like bubbly potion with a simple Pop Rocks experiment? Or what goes into a Pop Rocks on the Beach mixed drink?
You can also order new pop rock flavors like watermelon, cotton candy and Xtreme. Available in regular sizes or bulk.
Watch the Mythbusters put the “Mikey Pop Rocks” urban legend to the test.
