Pickle juice soda?! Here’s where you can get it around the Miami Valley

Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop will make you feel like you’ve traveled back in time.

The local candy store kicks the nostalgia up a notch with its vintage-style stores in downtown Miamisburg, Middletown and now Troy. The candy shops are locally owned by Bill and Tiffany Kelly.

Are you a fan of pickles? 

Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop sells dill pickle-flavored pop in stores and online. 

The vintage-style stores offer more than 200 bottles of specialty sodas including everything from Coca-Cola to Flying Cauldron Butter Scotch Beer and specialty sodas that taste like ranch dressing and buffalo sauce.

“If you’re the kind of pickle lover who relishes all things pickled, this is gonna be a really big dill. Pickle Juice Soda Pop is here,” the store posted on social media.

The stores also offer pickle cotton candy, bulk candy orders and gourmet chocolate candies. Customers can fill a box of goodies from their candy buffet for just $5.

Customers can also buy novelty items like funny socks, notepads, mugs and magic trick toys.
