From The TESR Test Kitchen

You know we got a mystery to solve and Scooby Doo, be
ready for your act
Don't hold back!

And Scooby Doo if you come through
You're going to have yourself a Scooby

Let's hope it's not Scooby-Doo! LOLLIPOP with POPPING CANDY.

The candy is "Imported and Distributed Excluviely by World Confections, Inc" in South Orange, New Jersey.

The are three packages -- each contains "popping candy" and a lollypop.  Each packet has a flavor: Blue Raspberry, Strawberry and Sour Apple.  All are "artificially flavored."  One envelope of popping candy is 20 calories while one lollypop is 40 calories.  The ingredients?  Sugar and lots of sugar.

There's also Carbon Dioxide in the popping candy -- it's listed in the ingredients and it's what makes it pop.  It's like briefly having the milky way on your tongue or a shooting star going off in your mouth.  Despite all the sugar, it doesn't produce a really strong taste.

That may be a good thing.  The lollypop rarely tastes like the billed flavor.  For example, who knew "Blue Raspberry" was code for "watermelon."  The Blue Raspberry tastes exactly like a watermelon flavored Now Or Later.

The popping candy is worth trying at least once -- it's a different experience than Pop Rocks, for example.  The lollypop can be skipped and, after sampling, that's probably true of the popping candy as well.
