Astro Biz: Moon Rocks chocolate bar

Moon Rocks chocolateMany businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one periodically on Seattle Astronomy.

Today’s Astro Biz is the Moon Rocks chocolate bar from Seattle Chocolate. There are plenty of products out this summer to commemorate and cash in on the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing, and this is a fun one. It’s a milk chocolate truffle bar with “bits of popping candy.” I was thinking pop rocks, but the pop comes from a bit of CO2 mixed in with the sugary bits.

This special-issue bar was created in conjunction with the Museum of Flight, which has helped spearhead a lot of Apollo commemoratives in connection with its Destination: Moon exhibit that includes the Apollo 11 command module Columbia. It (the bar, not Columbia) is available in many grocery stores as well.
