Rocket Fizz – Pasadena, California - Atlas Obscura

Rocket Fizz

Some of the most unusual (and in some cases, disgusting) flavors of soda imaginable. 

Sorry, Rocket Fizz is permanently closed.

With the widest selection of obscure and just downright weird soda flavors - more than 500 kinds in all - Rocket Fizz is treasure trove of sugar.

In addition to soda, Rocket Fizz also carries a gigantic selection of candy, ranging from the retro delicacy Chick-O-Stick to popular favorites like the Hershey Bar. They also sell nostalgia gag gifts and baseball cards. Not weird enough for you? How about Buffalo Wing or Ranch Dressing soda? Sometimes you just have to try something to say you did.

This Camarillo-based chain has expanded in a just a few years to over 40 outlets, and each independently owned and operated store has a different location-based theme.

Update as of February 2020: There is a Rocket Fizz store now located in the neighboring city of Burbank.
