“It’s Not Me, It’s You.” “Boy Scout.” “Your Mom, Extra Dirty.” “Blue Bombshell.” If you know what these have in common & I’m speaking your language, you must have been to Sodalicious in Provo, Utah. Me? I’ve been there more times than I’d like to admit and I’ve got the lingo down. Why haven’t I posted about it before? That’s the question I keep asking myself…why?! If you’re on Instagram, you’ve seen some of my pickups through the Sodalicious drive-through, so I haven’t been holding back, friends. But if you are anywhere in the vicinity – ever – you have got to make a quick stop at Sodalicious. And you will be oh-so-happy you did! Let me give you the “skinny” (which can also be slang for a diet drink when you’re ordering, by the way).
Sodalicious got started in late 2013 in the back of a little local barbershop in Provo (30 W 300 N)…just a little drive-up window that you could easily miss if you didn’t know you were looking for it. I tried it soon after it opened and word had already spread so that there was a line of cars waiting for their drinks and treats. These days you could hardly miss it if you turn down the right street – there is usually a line backed down the street! (But don’t let that deter you – it’s worth the wait AND those people know how to take an order and fill it fast!) Not only do they have their barbershop location, but just a few weeks ago, a second location was opened even closer to BYU at The Village (602 E. 600 N.). There is indoor seating & everything!
See that pebble ice? Love it! Every drink is served in a styrofoam cup to keep it nice & cold.
If you’re new to Sodalicious, let me fill you in on everything you need to know. It sounds simple – they’ve got drinks and snacks – but the drinks are all customizable, so the choices really are limitless. Sodas are the main focus, but there is also hot chocolate, “hot lava” (I’ll get to that in a minute), and non-carbonated soft drinks like lemonade, horchata, etc. Keep it simple and get it plain (but why would you?), jazz it up with flavors galore by choosing one of their Mixology menu items, or create your own special combination! Sizes range from a 12 oz kids drink ($1.00 plus flavors) to a giant 44 ouncer ($1.75 plus flavors)!
Hot Lava (can’t remember the price…maybe $3.50 for the small?) – only served in the Winter, but worth waiting for. This is extra thick & rich hot chocolate with whipped cream. Add in your favorite flavor & it is A-mazing. Comes in small or medium (8 oz & 12 oz I think).
You can walk up to the window on the side of the building or go through the drive-through. Usually, once you get near the walk-up window, someone will come out to your car and take your order (use our handy Sodalicious lingo guide below so you can feel “soda-cool” – what am I missing? Add it in the comments!). As the line moves, just keep driving until you get to the second window with the cashier. That’s where you pay and get your drinks.
Dirty – with Coconut & Fresh Lime
Extra Dirty – with Half & Half
Skinny – Diet
Sodalush – Sodalicious fan
Sodalicious Sugar Cookie ($1.50) – Soft & sweet with a hint of almond. And they keep them in the fridge, which I LOVE.
If you want something you can sink your teeth into, grab one of their treats, which include their ever-popular sugar cookie, the ginormous Big Fat Crispie, a simple bag of popcorn, and more, each for $1.50 or $2. Our go-to is the sugar cookie, but everything is good!
There’s a whiteboard by the walkup window & behind the cashier window with new flavors and menu items. I snap a pic almost every time it changes so I can keep a running list of choices.
I’m actually not a big soda drinker, but I’m hooked on Sodalicious! We all love it and have our favorites. If you’re not sure where to start, try one of our family favorites!

A few extra tips for you: Get a punch card! For every 10 punches, you get a free 32 oz drink with one flavor shot! Go on Tuesday – it’s Double Punch day so you get 2 punches for every drink (except 12 oz – you don’t get any punches for those)! If your cup’s in good shape & you want to save a few cents, rinse it out and take it back for a refill – $1 any size (plus flavors)! I know there are a lot of other “sodalushes” out there!
