Rocket Fizz, a candy and soda shop featuring hard-to-find flavors and treats from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, opens Monday in north Raleigh.
The shop is in the site of the former Quail Corners Creamery at 5017 Falls of Neuse Road.
A year ago, Rocket Fizz opened a store in Cary. At that time there were 44 locations across the U.S., with only a handful east of the MIssissippi. Now, the corporate website shows 54 existing locations and 23 "coming soon," including the Raleigh store and a store in Fayetteville.
Rocket Fizz stores feature more than 430 flavors of soda – including such novelties as bacon, ranch, marshmallow and chocolate – and more than 1,200 types of candy.
