Nothing makes me want to eat candy more than a drunk-looking elf on a package. OK, now I know you’re saying, "Chris, what's the deal? This is obviously a Christmas treat, and although I may be reading this on Christmas you sure didn't write it then." Wow, you have a lot to say. So I occasionally like shopping at discount stores that sometimes have candy sitting around for a little while. Either way, when I saw this treat I couldn't say no.

Yes! That's the good stuff. For some reason, I really like the combination of pop rocks and chocolate. Had I tried these early on in my candy-eating career, I probably would have thought poorly of pop rocks alone. The other great thing I've noticed: only companies with decent chocolate seem to try this approach, this one being no exception. This treat was yummy and my whole mouth and throat are tingling.

I guess unless you are reading this around the holidays (hopefully they will bring them back out every year), then you'll probably have a hard time finding these. But if you do, they’re worth brushing off a bit of dust.
