Cece Martin, 7th grade:
The packaging for Java Rocks is good. It is very easy to open, and the actual product looks kind of like a real rock! I think many people would buy these, especially people who like coffee. I also think that kids would buy these because they have chocolate on the coffee beans.

Josh Wilson, 7th grade:
The container is really plain, except for four colors. It’s easy to open, so no fuss there. Java Rocks smells like coffee, not a hint of chocolate, and it has a coffee bean aftertaste, so it would be appetizing for people who like coffee.  The texture is like a rock. It needs more cocoa and a little bit more coffee, but I guess I would buy it.

Sucheta Bandyopadhyay, 7th grade:
To open the Java Rocks, you just have to flip over the lid. It tastes like coffee and chocolate mixed. The shape is really just an abstract smell of chocolate and coffee. Only people who like coffee would buy these; no kid would want to eat them.

Nick Giangreco, 7th grade:
Java Rocks are very good and mouth-watering. The covering is very appealing; you wouldn’t want a very bright package. I think they should add more coffee bean powder. It smells like dark chocolate. Overall, I love it.

Bella Castilla, 7th grade:
I like the cylinder container. It smells like a Starbucks espresso. If you like coffee, you’re going to love Java Rocks. It’s like a food version of coffee, and I like the crunchy texture.

Devante Elcock, 7th grade:
Java Rocks are so good. They look like rocks, but if you put one tooth mark on these, you won’t believe your eyes. It’s amazing how good they are with 72% dark chocolate and Arabica coffee.

Tatyana Young, 7th grade:
Java Rocks are so good. When I say good, I mean good. If anybody is looking at Java Rocks in the store to see if they are good or not, I suggest you get them because they are delicious. I love Java Rocks so much because they are delicious to me and others, too.

Rohan Murray, 7th grade:
The taste is just like fresh coffee beans mixed with chocolate. When it goes in my mouth, I taste the chocolate exploding as I eat it. I love Java Rocks.

Lexi Mcowen, 7th grade:
When I first saw the package, I didn’t really know what to expect. I like how the Java Rocks really look like rocks. They smell like dark chocolate, but they taste very strongly of coffee. I would say this product would appeal to teenagers and adults, but the flavor is probably too bitter for children. Personally, I love the taste of Java Rocks.

Marty Leoni, 7th grade:
These are so good!! They are chocolaty, and javay. They are very flavorful and so awesome. They are easy to carry in a tube container. They appeal to kids ages 13 to 18, and I recommend them.

Amy Rodriguez, 7th grade:
Interesting taste/soft outside/no smell. People with low blood sugar might want it, and adults on the go, who don’t have coffee might use it. Adults will buy it if it doesn’t have a lot of sugar. It has a bad aftertaste of coffee. Maybe if it had more chocolate on the outside it would be good.

Loudon Cohen, 7th grade:
I love the taste and texture of each individual rock. As I normally don’t like coffee, this was a surprise. They are not crunchy; they are soft. It is not dark, but mild. I love Java Rocks!

Justin Farrow, 7th grade:
These chocolate covered coffee beans are really good. The coffee they use is Arabica, which fits perfectly with the 72% dark chocolate. The package it comes in is weird though. It says Java Rocks, which doesn’t fit the coffee beans at all. It tastes like coffee, but has a sweeter taste because of the chocolate. It also smells like chocolate. This is a product I would definitely buy.
