Rocket Fizz

Where 6303 Delmar Boulevard, University City • More info 314-833-4614, rocketfizz.com

Rocket Fizz in the Delmar Loop is nirvana for your sweet tooth. Crunchy and sweet, chewy and sweet, bitter and sweet — it’s all there. Saltwater taffy overflowing from wooden bins, chocolate bars stacked into counter-top pyramids, cellophane-wrapped hard candies piled high in glass canisters. Nostalgic candy, mass-market candy, international candy. To wash it down, choose from hundreds of curious soda flavors, many of which pay flavorful homage to wrestlers, musicians, game-show hosts and world leaders. And then, when you’re really hopped up on the sugar, take a gander at the shop’s gag gifts and magic tricks: chattering teeth, squirrel underpants (yes, that’s a thing) and disappearing ink. CS
