The Magic Pop journey all begins in a plastic bag with small pellets made of wheat, rice and corn.
The Magic Pop machine was heating while the friendly worker explained what the pellets are made of and how the contraption itself works. The pellets go in and they are heated and compressed which causes them to expand.
The consistency and texture of the finished product is not exactly like anything I have ever tried. I'd say the best way to describe it is as a cross between a cheese puff and a rice cake. More similar to the Quaker mini-rice cakes in thickness. Flavors are plain, onion, and strawberry. The plain and onion taste delicious dipped in hummus and the strawberry is wonderful topped with chocolate hazelnut spread. They are also a low calorie and fat free food.
|The discs are about 6in diameter and the bag has about 18-20 discs, price is $3.99 at KMP|
Yep, someone hand-painted their Nissan sedan with impressionist flowers. It was lovely and a sure sign that spring is on its way. Note how the artist represented the "C" on his license plates, go Bearcats!
