They have an awesome selection of still in production sodas imaginable, all in one store.
Was looking for an orange drink we used to drink years ago on Halloween called Green Spot. Was told it is not produced here in the states anymore, it's produced in Thailand and that's the only place to get it. Quite a trip just to get a drink, but was sad to hear it's no longer available. They also have quite a selection of candies of yesteryear.
Reinforces the old saying -
"Just like a kid in a candy store"
Drove 2 1/2 hours to get there and it was well worth the trip.

I visited Galco's with an old college friend who was showing me some off-track, unique sights of LA--and we pulled into a rather ordinary old-time grocery type building. He escorted me inside, into a world of vintage, bottled soft drinks. There must be 50 root beers, for example--including our family's personal favorite: Dang that's Good! butterscotch root beer. It's fun to just browse and look at all the flavors and many small bottlers who have brought a revival into this area. Literally a one stop shopping place, and a Mecca, for soda aficionados!

I loved this place!!. Such a nostalgia to the place. They have rows and rows of different flavor, brands, etc of soft drinks. They also have a great selection of beers and wine. Some I have never seen. For sure I have never seen that many soft drinks in one place!! Of course your paying more for a Galco soft drink then a pepsi but it will be something you will never have again and so worth it!!
