Even Jimmy Fallon Loves Israeli Chocolate

Gal Gadot introduces America to the joy of Israeli pop rocks chocolate.

Last week Israeli actress and all-around superwoman Gal Gadot went on the The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon while she was in New York appearing on Saturday Night Live. Jimmy Fallon had discovered she had never tasted a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, and so challenged her to try one. Gal Gadot’s response? Time for Jimmy Fallon to try out some Israeli pop rocks chocolate — you know, that kind that crackles in your mouth when you eat it.

No surprise, he loved it, and they shared with the audience the unique crackling pop sounds the chocolate makes. Watch the full clip below, and if you’re suddenly craving some Mekupelet, Krembos or other treats, here are some of our favorite Israeli gourmet chocolates to enjoy. You can also find Elite chocolate bars in most major grocery stores in the Kosher section and most kosher markets will carry a pretty decent selection of Israeli chocolate.
