Rocketfizz opened at around 1:00 on Sunday 10/4 to the jaw-dropping astonishment of small children everywhere. My kids stepped inside 120 Central Way and could barely walk three steps as the colors and volume of candy hypnotized them. I am going to quote my daughter, Sydney (12) pictured above. "This is crazy! I don't even know....what?...my mind is blown. " THAT is how much candy is in there. Kids everywhere cannot finish their sentences.
Jennifer Dixon (photo), owner of this local Rocketfizz franchise is excited to open in time for Halloween and get to know the locals. They have been busy unpacking and carefully stacking cases of sugared treasures in jenga configurations. The store also has an incredible selection of sodas- from the brownie caramel cream rootbeer (43g sugar, say my children) to the PB & J, bacon or ranch dressing flavors, there is certainly something for everyone with a hankering for the bubbly stuff.
Hours aren't quite set yet- here is what's posted on their website but they are likely to change as Rocketfizz learns and predicts our local binging habits with more accuracy. The nostalgia is worth the trip alone. Many candies I haven't seen in years. And I have to say nobody was complaining when we all split a Strawberry Charleston Chew on the car ride home. 425-822-9999 ~j
