Candyholics, rejoice! There is a new mega candy store making its way into the metro area. The California-based Rocket Fizz chain now has three locations in Georgia: Savannah, Marietta Square, and, most recently, Decatur. Aside from how colorful the store is, what is most exciting is the element of discovery and delight in finding lost treasures. Are you looking for that hard-to-find candy from your childhood? Rocket Fizz stocks loads of treats and surprises from yesteryear. Seeking gummy fruits from Japan or that chocolate bar you loved in England and haven’t found in the States? There’s a good chance you’ll find it among the almost overwhelming assortment of candy that packs the store.

Rocket Fizz prides itself on its huge (and we mean huge) stock of novelty sodas from microbreweries across the country. While there are tons of “normal” drinks such as root beer and ginger beer, the weird sodas, like buffalo wing and ranch sodas, are what will catch your eye. Don’t miss the dictator sodas with flavors such as Fidel Castro Havana Banana. Rocket Fizz also has a proprietary line of sodas in neon colors you won’t find in nature.

Young kids addicted to those taste test videos on YouTube will no doubt find candies they recognize like Warheads sour spray, along with plenty of Ty plush animals with huge glittering eyes. They also have quite the selection of novelty toys like inflatable unicorn horns, Mr. Bill replicas for you to abuse (oh no!), and a unicorn head squirrels feeder, which is both disturbing and awesome. No matter what you come here for, the excursion is bound to be a sweet hit with children and adults alike.
