Personally, I found the book to have just the right amount of detail for someone looking to get a basic overview of the story of Pop Rocks. The book is split between the background, the specific process required to make the candy, and the marketing of the candy. The background and marketing sections were both very detailed and provided readers with enough of the story to gain an idea of how Pop Rocks originated and how they were sold. In these sections, the reader becomes familiarized with General Foods, the key individuals involved in the story, and the impact that Pop Rocks had on the world, both in a social and economic manner.
While I enjoyed both of those sections, I found science and processing section the most interesting. These chapters explain the science in basic terms and the challenges that came with the specific properties of carbon dioxide and the sugars used in Pop Rocks.Read more ›
