Popping Candy 500g


Popping candy - also called sparkling sugar or crackle crystals - contains carbonated sugar crystals which fizz when they come in contact with moisture. The popping candy is coated in a fine film of cocoa butter helps protect the crystals from moisture, so the coated popping candy can be sprinkled directly onto butter icing, or included in chilled cake bases. When a bite is taken, you'll feel the popping sensation on your tongue and hear the distinctive crackle.

Once a playground sweet called ‘space dust’ or 'pop rocks' (peta zeta in Spain), they are now creeping into Michelin-starred kitchens.

Try Heston Blumenthal’s exploding chocolate gateau, or use to sprinkle over meringues, chocolate truffles and cover cake pops.

Ingredients: Sugar, glucose, cocoa butter, carbon dioxide (4%), lactose (milk).

Allergy advice: For allergens see ingredients in bold.

Storage: keep cool & very dry, away from direct sunlight, replace lid when not in use, avoid moisture.
