After hearing about Galco’s Soda Pop Stop for years we finally made a visit and were thoroughly delighted by what we found. Located in Eagle Rock, Galco’s carries hundreds of long forgotten soda as well as brands and flavors from around the world.
We talked to Mr. Galco himself who recommended (among many things) a soda called Hot Lips, made by a pizza company in Oregon with 100% organic fruit and cane sugar. We were sold when he turned the bottle upside down and held it to the light, “It has pulp from the fruit and you have to mix it around before you pour it.” As he was doing this, I glimpsed an actual strawberry sinking to the bottom. Sold. I bought it as well as a few others (the pear soda is a favorite).
While these sodas are not cheap, they are fantastic as an occasional treat and few bottles would make a perfect gift. We’re already planning a “bring a few sodas from Galcos” party just to try and get a taste of all the different flavors.
