    Default Shelf life of pop-rocks?

    Anyone have a feel for the approximate shelf life of pop-rocks? I'm trying to figure out whether to buy 100 or 200 sachets. Thanks!

    They have an expiration date--IIRC the ones I've bought have had dates going out 6 months to a year.

    My current box of 200 was "made" in October 2012 and has an expiration date of October 2014 printed on the packages.

    Yes, it has a printed expiration date. If you are only going to be using them occasionally but want to purchase more (so its cheaper) contact them and ask them to send the rocks of a recent batch

    Thanks, guys! I found the expiration date - had been looking on the box but it's actually on each sachet. Duh! Looks like mine have a shelf life of 22 months from manufacture date, so I should be ok with the box of 200. SCMSL, that's a good idea to request a more recent batch.
