St. Pete Rising reports that the candy shop, which has locations all across Florida, including Tampa, will open in the former Daddy Kool spot on the 600 Block of Central Avenue in St. Petersburg this year.

If you have a sweet tooth, then Rocket Fizz is basically Cloud 9. The soda pop and candy shop has basically every candy you’ve ever loved, and a litany of sweet and sour treats you never knew existed.

Butter soda, bacon lip balm, individually wrapped fried chicken candies, and beer taffy are all available. Don’t worry, you can get the old familiars too. We’re talking about Twix, Milky Way bars, Kit Kats, M&Ms, and Milk Duds.

We'll take our bacon anyway we can get it!#RocketFizz #thirstythursday #lestersfixinsbaconsoda #bacon

Daddy Kool moved to a new spot in the Warehouse Arts District earlier in 2019. Rocket Fizz will sit next to other relative newcomers like Brass Bowl, Pacific Counter, and Maple Street Biscuit Company.

Are you sweet or sour on the Rocket Fizz’s arrival? Let us know in the comments!
