Premium Cherry bombs
A cherry bomb is a spherical exploding firework with a diameter of roughly that of a cherry. Cherry bombs vary in size, but they are generally spherical and resemble cherries in form and size. Three-quarters of an inch to one and a half inches in diameter.
They are made of a paper shell envelope filled with black powder and a small removable cap at the bottom that contains a minute charge of flash powder. Cherry bombs were once manufactured as fireworks, but their sale has been banned in many countries because they have been used as explosive devices.
Cherry bombs were used as explosives in the United States during World War II. They were also used by the military to clear tree stumps and other obstacles. Cherry bombs have also been used as improvised explosive devices. In 2004, a cherry bomb was used in an assassination attempt on Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf.
In the United Kingdom, the sale of cherry bombs was banned in 1997. In the United States, the sale of cherry bombs is regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
Cherry bombs are still manufactured and used in many countries around the world.
