                  I remember when I was in elementary school, one of my teachers said she experimented pop rocks and soda to see what would happen. So her and a couple of friends ate pop rocks and soda to see what would happen. When she got her results, which were nothing, she decided to test it against diet soda and nothing happened.

                                Was I suppose to know the BA test kitchen was in the world trade center or did i have to have Claire causally mention it?

                                      I'm just not down with pop rocks. Not hating on the video cuz Claire, but I'd rather see her make some really good hard candy or something.

                                        I don't understand the need to buy so much...or even show that huge amount of pop rocks

                                                  This was more of an attempt to reinvent pop rocks than to replicate them
