Pop Rocks Profile in Boston Globe

Pop Rocks played a large part in my recent novel, so I was thrilled to see this little tidbit article about the invention of Pop Rocks in the Boston Globe this morning:

Rock that candy shop
by Joanna Weiss

A little Q&A session with Marv Rudolph about Bill Mitchell, inadvertent inventor of Pop Rocks.

When Bill Mitchell died in December 2004, I read some obituaries, and they made him sound like a mad scientist. I knew the man. He had 44 patents in 35 years. Jell-O, Tang, Cool Whip.

You can buy the whole story in his book, Pop Rocks: The Inside Story of America’s Revolutionary Candy by Marv Rudolph. I think that might need to go on my Christmas wish list.
