On Sunday, June 25th my fiance purchased a 3 pack "Mini California Rocket Fountain" at our local supermarket (Big Y Supermarket) in Mansfield, CT. The manufacturer is TNT Fireworks.

Two of the sparklers worked as expected although the effect was inconsistent - one barely showered sparkles while the other was more prevalent.

The third one exploded as soon as the fuse was lit. The explosion was violent and exploded upwards into my face, injuring my right eye and leaving lacerations on my right side of my face.

The explosion was so loud, it actually caused my neighbors concern as it sounded like a loud shotgun blast.
