Topic: Comic Book History
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3850 - This past weekend my youngest son, Vinnie, and I attended the Free Comic Book Day event in Rancho Cucamonga. One of the nice things about this event at 4 Color Fantasies is that while we were standing in line for a couple of hours plus, I went over to the food stand where our tickets got us a free hot dog each! Which helped make the wait more bearable!
After staying there for four hours in total, we headed back down to Carlsbad, which is 1 & 1/2 hours away. We of course had to stop at Tom's Farms in Corona for a break! I always try to stop there, to pick up divinity, chocolate, and vanilla fudge samplers! Which I did again this time, LOL!
While there, since it was just Vinnie and myself on this drive, I decided to check out what else was on hand. Besides all kinds of candy, nuts, etc., Tom's Farms of course has a fruit / vegetable stand. In that area there was also a large cooler. So as I wandered over there, I came across a bunch of 'strange' pops! Including this Blue Cream bottle. Of course it was the Mighty Mouse on the label that caught my eyes!
So while I bought one for me, Vinnie picked up a Chocolate Creme Soda, which he had never had one. But it didn't have a cartoon character on the label.
So anyways, I started drinking mine on the way back down to Carlsbad. It was very smooth to the taste, and refreshing. Enough so that when I got back home, I had to look up the producers of this soda pop, RocketFizz.com.
As you can see by their web site, they have quite a few sodas to sample! And the Rocket Fizz people mentioned the 'Golden Records' logo on the label. Golden Records has their own web site. So there is quite a bit of extra reading to be done, if you are interested!
Oh, and the RocketFizz folks are a franchise opportunity! As it is actually Rocket Fizz Soda Pop & Candy Shops. Take a look if you have interest at the tabs on their web site for more info.
Also for more info, and to be interactive with Rocket Fizz... Be sure to check their Facebook Fan Page!
Anyways, I just had to bring this soda pop to your attention today, as it was darn good, and comic book related. You never know what you will find at Tom's Farms!
