Pop Rocks Cherry Cola

If I’d planned it a little more, this week could have been Cola Flavor Theme Week. But here I am again with another cola flavored candy.


I got these cute little packets of Cherry Cola flavored Pop Rocks at the All Candy Expo. They come in a wee little lunchbox looking tin. The packets are a little larger than a packet of sugar or about a third of the size or a regular Pop Rocks package. I’m actually okay with a small packet, as Pop Rocks tend to get all sticky when exposed to humidity and I like to eat my Pop Rocks slowly.

The little grains are different colors, some pale yellow and some pink, I was guessing they were just a mix of rock flavors. They were very fizzy and popped really well, must better than my experience with the Sal y Limon ones. The cherry flavor was soft with only a slight tangy tone to it, but I completely missed the cola notes. Every once in a while there was a burst of caramelized sugar flavor, which was really nice, but didn’t ring as a cola flavor. Granted, I’ve never had Cherry Cola, but I’m guessing it tastes like cola in some way or another.

If you’re looking for stocking stuffers or party favors or a theme gift, these are an excellent choice. The packages are decorated in the style or a 50s diner or soda counter with bright red and black accents. The tins are limited edition, so they may come out with different varieties. This one was Series 1, Edition 2. (You can buy them online here at CandyFavorites and I think I’ve seen this or something similar at Cost Plus World Market.)

I wonder if they’ll ever make Root Beer Pop Rocks?

  1. I’d go nuts if they made root beer pop rocks. I don’t think they could make enough, no matter how hard they tried!

    Yes, I tried eating root beer Fizzies when I was younger. More than once.

  3. Cherry Coke makes life worth living.  Cherry cola flavored stuff usually is gross, though, especially Wild Cherry Pepsi.

  6. I’ve never tried American cherry cola, but there’s a Red Cola in Tanzania which is insanely delicious and has no cola flavor whatsoever (it probably should have been called Red Soda)
