Pop Rocks Expander – Sick Science! #125
Find out what makes the balloon expand here http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/experiment/poprocks
If you are a candy enthusiast, like a lot of the people at Spangler Labs, you know that not all candies are created equal. And, if we’re being honest, Pop Rocks are one of the greatest candies of all time! You dump a few of the tiny pebbles onto your tongue and, in an instant, they begin fizzing, popping, and snapping about in your mouth. What’s going on here? Being scientists, we devised a way to figure out the popping secret behind the famous candy. Are you ready to expand your mind (as well as a few balloons)?

Mentos also work except it is a physical reaction
Vinegar and baking soda also works you put baking soda in balloon and flip it over
The pop rocks reaction to the carbon dioxide in the soda give the balloon high pressure carbon dioxide to blow it up.
By the gas of the soda
The gas that the candy is making the soda give off.
It is expanding because the pop rocks and it is carbonated
Because of the pressure
It's the law of conservation of mass and matter the gas can't escape because of the balloon thus making the balloon expand
