Rocket Fizz IndyA quirky California chain that boasts "one of the largest and craziest selections of glass bottled soda pops and retro candies for sale in America" plans to open its first Indiana store next to Potbelly Sandwich Shop on Monument Circle. Rocket Fizz Soda Pop & Candy Shop is taking the former home of a Bank of America mortgage office in the first floor of the Circle Tower in the southeast quadrant of the Circle. The stores offer hundreds of varieties of soda and candies, along with retro and gag gifts, concert and movie posters, and tin signs. A few of the more out-there soda flavors include bacon, buffalo wing, peanut butter and jelly, apple pie, sweet corn, watermelon and cotton candy. The chain lists 25 locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Nevada and Tennessee. Other than the flagship store in California, the chain's locations are independently operated by franchisees. No word yet on an opening date for the local store.

    my family was excited to visit this shop however, upon checking out with our sodas, the female behind the counter insulted my selection and continued to make rude comments to her husband. i am assuming these two are the owners... they should learn how to treat/behave while locals are supporting their business. it was just annoying... i get enough of that from the pan handlers outside!

    1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

    2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

    3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

    4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

    5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
