EAT IT! Snacks And Sweets Trivia Game

How many times have you played Trivial Pursuit and thought, “Ah, come ON! Who could possibly know the names of the four great Greek poets of the 2nd century (and who cares)?” Have you ever wished for a trivia game that asked questions about topics that matter to your day-to-day life? Topics like candy, snacks, cookies, and ice cream? Well look no further, because Eat It! Snack & Sweets Trivia Game is here.

EAT IT! has actually been around for a few years but it is just now getting a major release in Target stores nationwide. We mentioned it in an article back in December of 2005 when I first discovered it, but I didn’t get a chance to try it. Now, I have a copy of the game in hand and I’m ready for a review.

Candy Trivia: Black Crows Misnaming

Categories: Candy,Classic and Retro Candy,Gummi/Gummy Candy,Licorice Candy


I’ll admit, I have never actually tasted Crows candy since they are licorice-flavored (and I hate licorice), but I thought this bit of trivia was interesting about them: “Originally, Crows were to be called “Black Rose”, but the printer misheard the name as “Black Crows” and printed wrappers with the wrong name on them.”

Seems like they would have put the name on paper rather than just saying it aloud, but I guess things worked differently back in the 1890′s when they were invented.

Peculiar Pop Rocks Facts

Pop Rocks book

No other candy has served the American imagination more than Pop Rocks. Okay, maybe the stories surrounding M&Ms could compete with the ones spawned from Pop Rocks, but you have to admit, dying from ingesting candy and Coke is pretty remarkable.

What’s just as remarkable is the real life history of Pop Rocks, told in a book by Marv Rudolph called Pop Rocks: The Inside Story of America’s Revolutionary Candy. The Boston Globe did a short Q & A with the author, and here’s what he had to say about the famously fizzy candy:

Q You write that when food chemist Bill Mitchell invented Pop Rocks, he wasn’t trying to make a candy.

A He was trying to carbonate Kool-Aid. He first made a carbonated ice. They actually made a product out of it. Imagine a hockey puck that was made of carbonated ice, and they would coat it in chocolate. A customer would drop it in a glass of milk, and it would bubble and they’d have an instant ice cream soda.


Q How long before the exploding kid rumors started?

A It must have started within six months. Their consumer hot line was going 24/7. People would go, “Are you the company that killed that nice little boy?” And right around that time, there was a rumor about spider eggs in Bubble Yum.

What I found most interesting was the fact that creator Bill Mitchell is also credited with inventing Jell-O and Cool Whip. Truly a culinary genius!
