The cupcake portion is a rich, moist chocolate cake with a chocolate mousse center filled with crunchy pop rocks that you would not know were there unless you listed carefully to them popping in your mouth.

The white chocolate coated ‘firework’ cake pop on top features a red and blue cake with a ‘pop’ of sprinkles and crisped rice pieces for crunch. It was hard to tell what kind of cake filled the actual cake pop with the white chocolate and popping pieces inside fighting for attention, but we believe it to be similar to a Fruity Pebble flavor.

Overall, we enjoyed this cupcake’s great take on July 4th, especially if you are a chocolate lover! Will you be grabbing this chocolate-lover’s American dream? Let us know in the comments below!
