Gimme Some Sugar

Rocket Fizz will also give us Diabetes.

Open for less than a year, Rocket Fizz just might be our new happy place (or at least the place that destroys our attempt at healthy eating habits).

The Deep Ellum candy shop, located next to barber shop-meets-bar High and Tight, is stocked with more than 350 sodas from microbreweries around the globe; knickknacks you really don’t need but want anyways; plus pretty much any sort of candy you could dream up.

From old school treats like Satellite Wafers and Charleston Chews to the, ahem, less traditional options like chocolate covered bugs, Crayola-brand lollipops that will dye your mouth rainbow hues, and dog food-flavored Jelly Belly Beans. Oh yeah, and don’t forget the bulk candy section with any flavor of taffy you could possibly desire.

What’s Kim Jon-Un flavored soda pop taste like? Probably like propaganda and oppression. (Or, if you’re going with Rocket Fizz’s interpretation, “Nuclear Orange Bomb.”)

And for those who don’t have a sweet tooth, there’s still plenty to love. Gag gifts include squirrel underpants, unicorn cat horns, and cupcake-flavored dental floss, to name a few.

The Details: Rocket Fizz is located at 2701 Main Street. Website here.
