A soda fountain in your neighbor’s house is either a sign of his great prosperity or his suspicion that the nation’s water supply is tainted with adamantium. Enjoy bubbly libations and other sweet treats from their natural source with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of soda, candy, ice cream, and more at Squeak Soda Shop. Stop in to the fountainous fun factory located in the Safeway Shopping Center at the intersection of Rockrimmon Boulevard and Vindicator Drive.
Squeak’s signature sodas (starting at $2.19) flow fresh from the fountain into hand-mixed flavor concoctions such as candy-cane bubbly or grandma’s apple pie soda, which, if left cooling on a windowsill, can attract roving bands of 2010 Census takers. Groupon customers can snag a six-pack of fizzy uplifting drinks to go ($11.25) and receive a free bag of cotton candy on the house.
Squeak extinguishes sugar cravings with a wide selection of ice cream and candy rich in nostalgic novelty. Ice-cream cones ($2.69 and up) and shakes ($3.99 and up) come loaded with fresh fruits and syrupy savories to sharpen sweet teeth. Squeak is also fully stocked with throwback classics including Pop Rocks and Fruit Stripe Gum, the tattooed treasury that can turn any civilized youngster wild with zebra-band ink work.
For hunger that can’t be satiated by handfuls of candy, consider Squeak’s meal options such as the classic triple-cheese-melt panini ($3.99) and the oversized soft pretzel ($2.99). The menu is cleared and swapped regularly on massive blackboards in-store, so stop in to see what’s being served and who’s getting served in the alphabetically elusive game of hangman.
