If the name of the business — Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shop — sounds fun and silly and even a little kitschy, that's because it's a good reflection of this franchise store. They carry thousands of flavors of sodas and candies, from traditional, such as retro favorites Charleston Chew and Mallo Cups, to specialty items, such as gingerbread-flavored soda and bacon-flavored breath mints. And speaking of retro, the place is also jam-packed with decades' worth of nostalgic gags and pop-culture items. So give the place a look, but be warned: Just when you think you've spotted the oddest or most unusual soda or candy possible, you'll run into something even more strange on the next shelf over.
