This is amusing. Its ordinary "candy rocket" fuel. Made with Israeli nitre and sugar.

The rocketeers :-) have seriously bad lab protocol, although their dust masks are great.
They handle chems barehanded, but best of all, they light a sample in their lab, next to piles of it.

But the point of this post is the burn rate: its well below what you can get with homemade BP, albeit this may well be what you want for rockets. I haven't made any candy rockets, the melting of fuel kinda bugged me, but if they can do it...
