To make my popping candy, heat pure granulated sugar in the microwave for 2 Minutes. The hot sugar mixture is then allowed to mix with carbon dioxide gas at about 600 pounds per square inch. The carbon dioxide gas forms tiny, 600-psi bubbles in the candy. Once it cools, you release the pressure and the candy shatters, but the pieces still contain the high-pressure bubbles. If you look at a piece of popping candy with a magnifying glass, you should be able to see the bubbles.
When you put the candy in your mouth, it melts (just like hard candy) and releases the bubbles with a loud POP! What you are hearing and feeling is the 600-psi carbon dioxide gas being released from each bubble!

Don't try it at home, try asking a chemistry specialist!

The candy is made by mixing its ingredients and heating them until they melt into dust, then exposing the mixture to pressurized carbon dioxide gas and allowing it to cool. The process causes tiny high pressure bubbles to be trapped inside the candy.
