Pop’rs: Carbonated Sprinkles

One of the most unusual things I've tried lately is Pop'rs. Basically fruit and savory flavored Pop Rocks, they are advertised as being appropriate to sprinkle over anything (even vegetables!) but I think they are best as an alternative to sprinkles on sweets. Although the buffalo (buffalo chicken flavor, I assume as it tastes like neither the city or bison) is tasty, I can't imagine it eaten any way but licked off the palm of your hand. Anyway, fun for kids, and since they are vitamin-fortified, they are better for you (and have better flavors) than Pop Rocks.
