From Pimple Pop To Barf: This MN Soda Shop Has Over 1,000 Flavors
Okay, alright. I'll admit, pimple pop soda doesn't particularly sound appetizing, but I can sure say it's pretty darn unique.
Blue Sun Soda Shop, located in Spring Lake Park and Richfield, is home to the largest selection of soda in the entire world.
From typical flavors like rootbeer and orange to pumpkin and mustard to barf and dog drool, you are sure to walk away with an intriguing, quirky drink (or perhaps a few).
I'm not sure I could mentally drink a barf soda, even if it does truly taste fantastic. The idea, shockingly, does not still well in my stomach.
When COVID-19 isn't wreaking havoc across the world, the Spring Lake Park location has a classic soda fountain. The fountain makes fresh Whistler Soda, ice cream floats, egg creams, and phosphates.
Of course, the soda shop wouldn't be complete without candies, sweets, and arcade games as well.
The candy list is extensive. According to the website, sweets worthy of mention include their old-fashioned saltwater taffy and their wall full of PEZ.
The store also offers bottling tours! You can learn how workers use an authentic 1952 Crown, Cork and Seal Dixie Model F bottling line. Public tours are held at 11:30 am and 1:30 pm on Saturdays and 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm on Sundays. The price is $9.99 per person.
Here's a sneak peek at what you'd see during your tour!
