For years and years (like, I dunno -- maybe 20?) we've been meaning to go to this funky store that's about 40 minutes from here in an L.A. enclave known as Highland Park. It's a family-owned market which over the years has morphed from a grocery store, into a specialty soda-pop store! Yes, that's right, it's a store full of soda pop! You'll also find beer, wine, and candy here, as well as a little sandwich counter in the back. You may have seen this place featured on Huell Howser's show, or on the Food Network. In fact, it's even got a little mention in this month's Sunset magazine! Anyhoo, we popped in there today and bought a ton of bizarre sodas and some nostalgic candies (like Mallo Cups, wax lips, Zotz, and candy cigarettes).
Please enjoy the following photo documentation! And by all means, if you're ever in the area, do stop in at 5702 York Blvd.
