SO what does the fruit exactly do when you bite it, gush fizzy juice? Act like pop rocks?

It's pretty interesting.

Yes, it fizzes when you bite into it. Grapes work the best. Always a hit at parties. Over-carbing can cause the grapes to split open which makes them less attractive, so some trial and error is necessary to get it dialed in. I want to try it with cocktail shrimp sometime.
