Blue Sun seems to be changing/expanding every time we stop. Last time we were there, this was where all the pinball machines were, and now it's an "old fashioned" soda shop:
|Lots of flavors of soda, and also ice cream floats! (And hot dogs and chips.)
We found the soda tasting at the back of the store, which was just some open bottles and tiny plastic "sipping cups:"
|"State Fair" sodas in front of John Wayne.
We all had tiny pours of all 5 kinds of soda. I looked on the labels and saw that the State Fair sodas were made right there at Blue Sun Soda. Here was my ranking from favorite (on the left) to least favorite (on the right):
|Henry's ranking: he liked Rocket Bomb Pop and Cotton Candy a lot.
Neither of my boys cared for Kettle Corn (ranked last).
|New sodas: the boys met Billy last year, and they liked his goofy sodas here. The colors
don't match the flavors. (I bought a grape Billy's Bubble Pop, and that was the yellow one.)
|A previously closed space in the back is now the arcade!
|The other side of the arcade on the other side of the air hockey table.
|The boys using their last quarters, with 2 other kids at the air hockey table.
In that first shot of the arcade, you can see my basket of sodas in the foreground. I walked out with 8 bottles, making it one of my smallest trips to Blue Sun. Thanks for the fun tasting event! We'll be back!
