If you are a candy or soda lover, you need to check out Rocket Fizz in Winter Park! Their unique candy options are endless and it’s located on Park Avenue, a great place to take a stroll and look at the other shops in the area.
Prepare for your senses to be overwhelmed when you step foot into Rocket Fizz. There are decorations everywhere, including posters, stuffed animals, and miscellaneous memorabilia. The building itself is beautiful as it is located in Downtown Winter Park, and once you go inside there’s even more to look at. You can’t help but feel nostalgic as you step inside, with the lighting showcasing your favorite candies as a child, and the unique collection of items inside.
If you like candy, this is definitely the store for you! The entire store is filled with different sweet treats, running from nostalgic throwbacks to the latest Airheads flavor. For holidays, they offer candy baskets specially curated to your taste. If you like chocolate, they have two sections filled with any chocolate candy you can think of, including Hershey's, M&M's, and international chocolates.
If you’re more into fruit or gummy candy, don’t fret, they have a large selection and will rotate some candies in as they get them. One of their most unique products is the Lil’ Nitro, a giant gummy bear infused with ghost pepper! They also carry any jelly bean flavor you could possibly think of, and the same goes for their sodas.
My favorite part of Rocket Fizz is its soda collection. Of course, they carry the classics, such as Dr. Pepper and Coca-Cola, but they also have sodas you can’t find anywhere else in Orlando. They have their own soda line with different flavors depending on the season, including Marshmallow and S’mores sodas over summer. If you’re looking for a unique taste, try the Green Apple Jalapeno or the Pumpkin Pie sodas! My favorite unique soda they offer is their Bubble Gum flavored one, it’s just the right combination of sweetness and carbonation.
On the flip side, they offer different flavors of Sour Puss sodas that claim to make you want to pucker up from the sourness! They also carry spicy sodas that you and your friends or family can try, ranging from Ghost Pepper to Habanero Pepper sodas.
Rocket Fizz is the perfect shop to stop at with family and friends! You could pick out soda and candy for each other and try things you might have never thought to try. If you’re a fan of Dippin Dots, they even offer to-go containers which can be difficult to find. Stop in at Rocket Fizz to browse around and create some great memories at the end of the day!

Rocket Fizz has two locations, but I do have a favorite. One location is in Dezerland on International Drive, which is a great spot if you are looking for an exciting day full of activities! Their other location, which I’m more fond of, is on Park Avenue in Downtown Winter Park. This location brings nostalgia and and is located in a more relaxing environment. Once you’re done picking out your candy and soda, you can take a stroll down Park Ave, stopping in stores or maybe grabbing a bite to eat at some of the local restaurants.
