With roughly 2,000 types of confections to choose from and nearly 400 sodas, this new, old-fashioned candy shop will most certainly bring out the kid in you. From classics like Pez and root beer to imported treats from Japan, the U.K., and beyond, there’s something to satisfy every sweet tooth at Rocket Fizz.
Located in Denver's popular LoDo neighborhood, Rocket Fizz is an independently owned and operated franchise run by Patrick "Patty Cake" Evans, who says that, "When you walk into this space, you're transported to a different time, a different place, a different era, a different feeling, a different state of emotion."
On your first visit, you'll experience an overload of nostalgia and waves of emotions, as their shelves overflowing with vintage signs, posters, sodas, and candies bring back all the memories and good times of yesteryear.
Remember counting out pennies from your allowance (that you earned doing chores) and buying old time taffy for 5 cents a piece? I sure do.
Wowzers! Have you ever seen a "Wall of Soda" like this one...or anywhere else for that matter?
Rocket Fizz boasts about 375 sodas which you can buy single or in bulk. From hard to find retro soda pops to gag flavors like "Kitty Piddle" and "Bacon Soda," they've got every libation imaginable.
Who knew? And they even have a "Ranch Dressing" flavored soda you can chase it with...if you're just that daring. (This has all the makings of a perfect prank. Just sayin'.) "Y'all get yer fixins'!"
You could easily spend hours perusing the fully-stocked shelves that contain virtually any candy craving you remember from childhood.
What a selection of Pez! (Dibs on Kermit and Fozzie!)
Stepping into this old-fashioned candy shop is truly like stepping into a time machine. Did you know the Idaho Spud Bar has been in production since 1918?
And you know you "smoked" your fair share of candy cigarettes! Never mind all that hoopla about desensitizing children. You felt as cool as Marlon Brando when you blew that puff of powdered sugar smoke from the end of your candy cigarette you bought at the general store.
Rocket Fizz also stocks all sorts of imported confections from all over the globe, including these green tea, cheesecake, and apple pie Kit Kats from Japan. (You probably didn't even know they existed!)
How about indulging in the world's largest gummy bear, weighing in at a whopping 5 pounds?
Or perhaps you'd like a 1-pound Snickers bar to slice and share with your friends and coworkers? (Or keep it all to yourself. There's no judgment in candy land.)
This rad one stop shop also has hundreds of retro and gag gifts suitable for children and grownups of all ages.
You can even satisfy your most primal desires with their plethora of bacon products. Bacon sticks AND a free tattoo? Yes, please!
The inventory at Rocket Fizz is continually changing and expanding, but you can always count on fun, whimsy, and nostalgia no matter what!
They even carry back to school supplies like a "Box of Boogers" and "Flarp! Noise Putty."
Shenanigans galore at this one stop shop for all your prankster, soda pop, and candy craving needs.
Stop into Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shop today and feel good about feeling like a kid again!
