Just in time for Halloween, the 60+ strong chain of sweets and treats known as Rocket Fizz has opened in downtown Kirkland at 120 Central Way. Upon entering the candy emporium, one cannot help but be filled with nostalgia and memories of one's youth as the aisles are filled with candies from many decades ago (the retro wall coverings help set the mood too).
The Rocket Fizz brand of soda pop is what this place is known for so be sure to try one out. We opted for the Rowdy Roddy Piper Bubble Gum Soda after passing on the Wink Martindale's Orange Passion Fruit Guava Soda and another one featuring the mug of Judge Wapner.
What is this place really like? Think of it as a cross between the old candy shoppe in the Willy Wonka movie from the 1970's and an Archie McFee's. A fun place to stop by and take a gander. And I'll bet you walk home with a treat from your past.
Check 'em out.
