When Rocket Fizz Candy & Soda Shop (6303 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-833-4614) opened just across the street from us, we knew there were going to be some crazy items for sale. Rocket Fizz boasts dozens of flavors of soda from run-of-the-mill cola to Snooki-flavored (yup). So we decided to pick up a few bottles and test them out.

We chose seven sodas: "Seal Ya Later" (lovingly referred to as "Osama"), Bacon, Buffalo Wing, Sweet Corn, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Martian Poop and Ranch Dressing.

Seal Ya Later was certainly intriguing, because we couldn't figure out what the flavor would be. The label reads, "Knock Knock...who's there? America!!!" It basically just tasted like watered-down Coke. Which is pretty American, actually.
