Hey Everybody, happy tax day, and happy 19th birthday to me!
So for those of you who are wondering, "what in the world is a haul?!", a haul is basically where I show you guys what I bought from a specific store. I've seen a lot of people do it, mostly on YouTube, but I figured it's a fun way for me to let those of you who live in Central Iowa see some of my favorite stores and products!
The store I went to was called Rocket Fizz. It is located in Ankeny, Iowa right off of Highway 69 near Sonic and Earl May. They carry a variety of soda, candy, gags, and gifts. This was my first time stopping by, and I was surprised at how extensive their inventory was. During my visit I bought A Bundaberg Sparkling Pink Grapefruit drink, Blue Raspberry Zotz, two Disney pins, a Harry Potter Chocolate Frog, and a pack of Flash Playing Cards.
Okay, so to be completely honest, I mostly bought this because of how cute the bottle was. "Bundaberg Brewed Drinks is a proud family owned business, based in the small Australian town that shares our name, Bundaberg. Our family, the Flemings, founded the brewery and still run it to this day. For as long as we’ve been in business we’ve lived by one simple rule; If it’s worth brewing it’s worth brewing well." -Bundaberg's website
Same idea went behind these pins. I saw them near the cash register and I made an impulse buy. My sister and I both enjoy collecting pins, so I decided to get the Ursula one for her and I'm keeping the Pooh Bear pin.
As I was looking around the store I spotted Zotz. As a kid, I have fond memories of buy these for $.25 at the pool during adult swim. My sister is also obsessed with these, so I picked some up for her.
So this deck of cards is something I would not normally buy. My brother is obsessed with cards, he is also obsessed with the TV show The Flash. So I saw this and I knew I had to buy this! And can we just take a second to appreciate how well these cards photographed?! Because just yes!
This may have been one of my favorite buys. I'm just a wee bit (or A LOT) obsessed with Harry Potter. My dream is to go The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and drink butter beer. Okay, not my only dream, but something I would love to do. One of the coolest parts about this, is that they actually come with collectible cards like mentioned in the series. I got the Mr. Ollivander card!
