Hi! My name's Melissa and smellymellyblinks is a collection of daily life, fashion, food and music. In case you're wondering about the name smellymelly, it is indeed a nickname that comes from my partner in crime, Ian.

A few weeks back while visiting the fam fam we were trying to come up with things to do in LA while spending time with my mom. Ian had come across this video and really wanted to check out the place. When we told my mom about the idea she didn’t seem too keen about driving all the way to Highland Park just to visit a store with a bunch of different sodas. But man, did her opinion change once  she set foot in that door. Her eyes lit up and she got soo excited, let me just say she literally looked like a kid in a candy shop.

If you are ever in LA I’d definitely recommend taking a trip to Galco’s Soda Pop Store. The amounts of soda stocked in this one store is amazing and the sodas are made with actual sugar (none of this corn syrup junk). The owner is super friendly and was able to give advice on which kinds of soda we might like. My favorites sodas so far have been: Mint Julip, Nesbitts Peach, and Bubble Up just to name a few.
