Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
Back when I was about 8 (born in 56) our family was headed home from Newport Beach, California in our Rambler Ambassador and I was sipping on a bottle of Bubble Up. Lo and behold my hand ran across an unopened package of Fruit-Punch flavored Fizzies, that somehow managed to get lost between the seats. Knowing already how Fizzies behaved in water, I wondered what they would do if broken in two and dropped into the bottle of Bubble Up.
Well let me tell you, even the old "volcano with baking soda and vinegar" was tame compared to the explosion I got from mixing those two. My half full bottle of Bubble Up became emptied all over the inside and roof or our Rambler. My Brother squealed and my Mother did the same, and even when Dad managed to pull the car over to the side, that bottle of Bubble Up was still pulsating with Fruit Punch FOAM, all over the place. I do not recommend you try this at home... :-) ~ David from California
