We keep seeing chefs use popping candy to make desserts, from Heston to home cooks on MKR. Mum said to me to get her some next time in Chicago. I was like, we’ve had popping candy (we know them as pop rocks) since we were kids, you mean you never tried them? She said nope, she doesn’t remember trying them.
I figured, I don’t need to wait till I go to Chicago or London to get them, surely they are common enough. I turned to my trusted source of information for sweets and all sorts, my niece. I lined her and she replied when she woke up—she’s seen them at 7-eleven. Lo and behold, I found exactly the same ones she showed me at 7-eleven. Easy enough.
I wonder what mum will think of the candy?
