Rocket Fizz opened in December 2016. Part of a nationwide chain with roughly 80 locations currently, Rocket Fizz features retro candies such as Dubble Bubble gum, Slo Poke caramel pops and The Burn’s favorite — Chocolate Ice Cubes.
The store also carries vintage soda pop brands and sodas with bizarre flavors like Mustard Soda, Enchilada Soda and Maple Syrup soda, as well as non-food novelty gifts and merchandise.
While the Leesburg location may be closing up shop, a new Rocket Fizz location opened earlier this year in Alexandria, if you need your Fizz fix going forward.
