It is a California Candle made by TNT. It is pretty much like a Roman candle. Shoots sparks out the top end and has a handle to hold.

I tried contacting TNT fireworks about 2 fireworks that exploded in mine and my friends hands this past Friday. TNT fireworks failed to contact me back. So I wanted to make sure that the public knows they are not safe. The country needs to know about this so kids don't get hurt using them for the 4th of July. When I lit the California Candle I held it at the handle where it says to hold it. Then it exploded in my hand and shot out the back end right into my stomach. That left a massive welt and bruise on my stomach and my stomach was bleeding. Then a few minutes later the same thing happened to my buddy with another California Candle. I'm very upset that they never responded back to me after there firework malfunctioned. The public needs to know to stay safe and stay away from TNT fireworks. I have picture proof if you need to see that.
