“I love working here. Come on — it’s a candy shop!” said Henry Heisterkamp, a City College student who began working at Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shop (1021 State St.) when it opened in October 2014. With tons of sugary items straight out of the old days, the store has everything to satisfy your sweet tooth — from bacon- and ranch-flavored sodas to a plethora of taffy and candy choices, along with heaps of other wild merchandise. Eighty-five of the 500 pop choices are bottled specifically for Rocket Fizz with their own formulas.
