verdict: omg, i love it!
my 8 year hiatus from soda has officially ended today as i finished my second bottle of soda and burp out this review. i DECLARE that galco's is AWESOME. no, no, wait. it's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious yah hear?!
i finally got the opportunity to drive my butt to galco's. the hype from watching food networks spotlights, huel howser's visits, and my friend's regular shopping sprees there inspired me to check it out. i wasn't expecting to spend much there...after all, i've been soda abstinent for so long. boy was i wrong.
galco's is fun. be ready to feast your eyes upon aisles upon aisles of soda, ranging from the quirky to the commercial. i picked up a few:
-clearly canadian (a childhood favorite...until they switched it to zero calories with the artificial sweetner. tastes like crap now)
-moxie (as suggested, i am suppose to sip this, not gulp it)
-rose flavored soda
-henry weinhard's root beer (oh dang, you tasty!)
-cherry soda (it is so red it will stain your teeth)
-black cherry soda
the other half of the store is stocked with beers of all types that you can buy per bottle or pack. i got a pack of lowenbrau beer for pops (seriously taking it back old school with that one).
not to mention, galco's also houses a nice selection of old fashion sweets: zagnut, chick-o-stick, mallo-cup, and my ultimate childhood favorite THE CHEWING GUMS SHAPED LIKE A CIGARETTE THAT YOU TAP AND THEN BLOW POWDER SMOKE OUT OF. you remember those?! they look like a pack of smokes but totally kid friendly!
so basically, i'm never coming back here again. my teeth can't take all that sweetness....ok, maybe i'll just come back ONE more time...ok, maybe i'm coming back tomorrow...alright, i'm leaving NOW.
