Rocket Fizz – Soda pop & candy shop

Rocket Fizz is a fun, eye-melting store with merchandise from floor to ceiling. They specialize in domestic and international candy with an emphasis on flavored soda. No, really – they’ve got everything from good old cherry cola to apple pie flavored soda and… ranch dressing(?!?). I’ve brought in kids who can spend up to an hour in this small storefront, turning over every candy piece and reading every soda description to make the most educated choice. Definitely a fun spot to amuse the kids, as long as you have every intention of buying them something sweet! While the real winner in my mind is the soda pop, Rocket Fizz is also home to toys, gag gifts and home decorations.  

All ages will get a kick out of finding their favorite childhood chocolate bar or filling up a bag of taffy chews. I stop in after work sometimes and pick up a ginger beer or sarsaparilla, of which there are dozens to try from. Need to bring something to your next party? Try skipping the six pack of Yuengling and go for a six pack here of assorted root beers.
