I don’t know about you, but I had my first nostalgia, when I visited Rocket Fizz. I’ve been to numerous candy shops, but this place beats all of them by far. Rocket Fizz is a new retro soda and candy store that opened up in 2012 and is now starting to open in multiple states. Instead of finding drinks and candies that are available everywhere, Rocket Fizz offers numerous varieties that you won’t find anywhere else.
The shop is decorated like a 1950’s soda parlor, and it includes so many different types of soda on sale. Some of them may be tasty, but others are purely disgusting to be honest. Be warned, some sodas in the store are not for the faint of heart. Especially one particular line of sodas called Lester’s Fixins, which includes crazy flavors like bacon soda and buffalo wing soda.
Rocket Fizz also has candies, ranging from contemporary favorites to old-style novelty candies. This doesn’t just include candies from the USA, but from Japan as well. Many of the candy boxes come with toys like the 80’s and the 90’s, so it’s actually quite worth the money, if you are buying them for kids.
If you don’t enjoy sweets, you can still enjoy the environment, since it’s like walking into the past. The vintage store is filled with 80’s and 90’s posters and signs, bringing memories from the good old days when you were just a kid.
