If you have a sweet tooth, you’re in luck, because there are some exciting developments in the world of candy (and soda too). In the Mission, Taylor’s Tonics of unusual soda-flavor fame is getting ready to open THE FIZZARY. The Fizzary will offer retail sales of Taylor’s Tonics sodas, which include Chai Cola and Maté Mojito, as well as over 700 unusual sodas from around the world, unique local sodas, and nostalgic candies. They are hoping to branch out into house-brewed sodas and a full soda counter with taps in the future, but they need to get the space permitted first. They’ll be launching a Kickstarter campaign on August 14th, to help with getting that process underway. The opening date is currently scheduled for August 16th, so stay tuned! Their Facebook page frequently has updates, including pictures of their interior design as the space gets closer to completion. 2949 Mission St. at 25th St. 831-460-4600.
Also exciting in the world of sweets is the opening of the San Francisco location of LITTLEJOHN’S CANDIES from Los Angeles. As Eater reported, the candy store will be opening its first location outside of Los Angeles at 1355 Market Street. Littlejohn’s first opened in the 1920s and then moved to the Los Angeles Farmers’ Market in 1946. Their specialty is English toffee, but there will be lots of other old-fashioned treats as well, like fudge and caramels. The opening is currently planned for October, and there are some pictures and updates of the ongoing construction on their Facebook page. 1355 Market St. at 10th St.
