Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shop recently opened in downtown Santa Barbara, to the delight of locals and tourists alike. Hotly anticipated by the dental community, this colorful shop is bursting at the seams with all manner of sugary treats.
Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shops has thousands of bottled soda pops and candies from all over the world! Whether you're looking for a hard-to-find sweet treat from another country or just hunting down your next sugar fix, this is the place for you. Piles and stacks and mountains of colorful candy sit on every shelf and wait around every corner.

And to wash down all your cotton candy and gobstoppers and gummy burgers? How about a refreshing soda? Rocket Fizz carries Gene Autry Root Beer, Snookie Wild Cherry and even Green Tea Soda (if you feel like a cleanse).
In addition to the wide variety of sodas from around the world, Rocket Fizz also carries their own line of soda pops in a range of interesting flavors. Have you ever tried cotton candy-flavored soda? How about black licorice or banana nut? Now you can!
Rocket Fizz sells their sodas by the bottle, or you can mix and match your own six-pack. A thoughtful selection makes a perfect party favor or surprise gift for the beverage enthusiast in your life.

It's important to know that Rocket Fizz also sells so much more than treacle and fizz drinks. They also have a changing selection of games, gag gifts, concert and movie posters, tin signs and other fun nostalgia.
As they say on their website, "The inventory is always expanding, just like outer space. So if you want to have fun, then fly on over in your spaceship and cruise around a Rocket Fizz universe."
(They really, really like outer space, in case you couldn't tell by the "Rocket" part of their name.)
Each Rocket Fizz location is independently owned and operated. Rocket Fizz in Santa Barbara is open Sunday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m.
There are many other fun things to do, see and eat very near to the store. We recommend you check out the best playground in Santa Barbara while everyone is hopped up on sugar. Then, head over to visit the stores at Paseo Nuevo before finishing with a hearty Cajun meal at The Palace Grill.
Let the good times roll!
