Rocket Fizz, a boutique for old-time candy and flavored soda lovers, is now open in Cary.
Located at 155 SE Cary Parkway next to Trader Joe's, the store carries more than 430 different labels of bottled soda and over 1200 different kinds of candy.
"The reason people love to come in to the store is for the huge selection and the oddities," said owner Bill Sallada in an email. "We sell dozens of crazy flavors of soda that most people wouldn’t have imagined, including bacon, ranch, marshmallow, chocolate, and lots of other different flavors of soda."
The store also stocks hard-to-find candy popular in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
Although the store is already open, a grand opening party will be held Saturday, March 1 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
There are 42 Rocket Fizz stores in the U.S., but only four east of the Mississippi.
