kid in a candy store

During our last few hours in Indianapolis we stumbled across Rocket Fizz, an old fashioned candy and soda pop store. I almost burst with excitement! Such a riot of colour and amazing graphics the like of which Willy Wonka could only have dreamed about.

As the saying goes, a picture speaks a thousand words:


LOOK! candy bars

Hershey's and Valomilk

Slo Poke and Black Cow candy bars

Boylan's Soda

Rocket Fizz limeade

Soda pops!

Cock Cola and Spiffy

ALL the taffy

Abba-zaba taffy bars

Whirly Pop!

Junior Mints and Big Hunk

Rock candy

Saltwater Taffy


I left with a bag full of saltwater taffy, one of my favourite American candy indulgences, and a Slo Poke as the manufacturer is Atkinson’s.

Yum yum!

If you want to keep up to date with my daily observations then hop over to Instagram which is my latest obsession! I post a lot of pictures on Twitter (usually of things that amuse me) so it seemed fair that instead of bombarding everyone on Twitter with images I move them all over to Instagram. As always, it’s an eclectic mix of daily bits and bobs!

    :-) although I read the post last week I just glanced at the title and read “Knit in a candy store” – my first thought was: “why not?”
