What is the truth behind the Mikey Story?

The rumour got started that POP ROCKS®, because of the carbon dioxide in the product, would fizz up and when you drink it in conjunction with a can of soda they would explode in your stomach. The rumours became so bad that the FDA even set up a hot line in Seattle (WA) for people to call to dispel the rumour and assure parents that the candy was safe for children and it would not cause the stomach to explode if mixed with carbonated drinks.

If you want to know if he really exploded when he drank soda and ate POP ROCKS®, the truth is that he did not! In fact, the actor who played little Mikey lives today in a completely unexploded form in NY.
