Is it just me, or is Galco's really gross?

Slow Foodie | Jan 8, 2003 03:51 PM

I know the lure of the weird and retro sodas is really compelling, but Galco's is really filthy and they're sure not very nice there. There seemed to be a thick layer of grime over everything and my kids tried to grab some candy out of a bin and it was literally all stuck together. Plus, the soda costs about twice as much as it is at Soda King in Torrance. I know the Torrance place is a big schlep but Danny the owner takes such delight in his wares that it's a complete pleasure and a true education. Soda King also ships but those glass bottles are heavy so the shipping will probably cost more than the beverages. Even though I'm spitting distance from Galco's, I'll make the Torrance pilgrimage and stock up from now on. P.S. Soda King carries Sparky's Root Beer from Santa Cruz which itself is worth a drive to Torrance--or Santa Cruz for that matter. I've added a link for Soda King.
