When food especially candy is made out to be fun, there is always the danger of this creating unhealthy eating and social habits among children, that can last a lifetime (see the entry number 8 on Candy Cigarettes). ‘Popping Candy’ first appeared in the late 1970’s and when put in the mouth would pop and sizzle as it melted harmlessly on contact with your saliva. But then stories started to spread that if you close your mouth and pinch your nose shut when eating it, the pressure will rupture your ear drums. Or worse still, if you consume a large amount of ‘Popping Candy’ and soda at the same time, it was rumored your stomach might explode. Well, these are both urban myths and thankfully the product is actually very safe to consume.
