Fall Treats at Dairy Queen Starting Today

Down along the Grand Strand, temperatures this time of year don’t always feel like Fall. Last year, there were 4 days in the high 90s and 16 in the 80s in September so sometimes it’s hard to get into “the falling leaves and sweaters” mood.

Here’s some help from Dairy Queen. Starting today, you can get all of their fall treats, even if you’re still in a t-shirt and flip flops.

Pecan Pie Blizzard Treat: Pecans, brown sugar pie pieces and caramel blended with DQ soft serve.

Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Treat: Real pumpkin pie pieces with whipped topping and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

Reese’s Pieces Cookie Dough Blizzard Treat: Reese’s Pieces, chocolate chip cookie dough and peanut butter topping.

Oreo Mocha Fudge Blizzard Treat: OREO cookie pieces, coffee and sweet choco chunks.

Choco Dipped Strawberry Blizzard Treat: Strawberry and choco chunks.Royal Ultimate Choco

Brownie Blizzard Treat: Brownies, choco chunks and cocoa fudge filled with fudge.

And what about the winter menu? How about Vick’s Vapo Rub treats. Or DQ soft serve with piece of Halls Menthol cough drops? Just an idea. You can send any royalty checks to CheapEatsMyrtleBeach.com.

The Fall Blizzard Menu is available starting today, September 8, for a limited time only. Locations are as follows: 2103 S Kings Hwy, Myrtle Beach; 101 Orchard Dr, Myrtle Beach and 10391 Ocean Hwy in Myrtle Beach.

New Bacon and Queso Egg Bagel at Einstein Bros

Einstein Bros Bagels, where they work absolute magic on the already wonderful bagel, has a new bagel to offer. It’s the Bacon & Queso Egg Sandwich. The BQES features seasoned cage-free eggs topped with their new signature queso and Applewood smoked bacon on a choice of fresh baked bagel.

The new queso features double-whipped Jalapeno Salsa Shmear and spicy green chiles for a kick of heat “that will wake up your tastebuds.”

Einstein Bros. Bagels’ says their new Bacon & Queso Egg Sandwich is available at participating locations but NOT those inside colleges.

So guess where the only Einstein Bros Bagels is in the Greater Grand Strand? Yup. 125 Chanticleer Drive West in Conway which puts them right in the middle of Coastal Carolina University.

OK. So maybe there’s no BQES there. But there should be plenty of other options. See pictures, below.

Looks like it’s time for a road trip.

Dickey’s Has Dr. Pepper Wings. Fly, Dickey’s, Fly!

Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants were founded in 1941 by Travis Dickey. For the last 80 years, they’ve served millions of people what they call Legit. Texas. Barbecue. To celebrate their 80 years, Dickey’s has introduced the limited-time Sweet & Smoky Pit-Smoked Wings with Dr Pepper Barbecue Sauce.

Sadly, Dickey’s doesn’t provide any details on this. I guess the name says it all. Before we go on, maybe you were wishing you could watch a short, 15 second commercial with nice pictures of Dickey’s Sweet & Smoky Pit-Smoked Wings with Dr Pepper Barbecue Sauce? You’re in luck. Click this link.


The party also marks the return of Brisket Chili. This authentic, Texas-style chili can be enjoyed as a premium side item or as a savory topper on a variety of menu classics such as Mac Stacks, Bakers or Frito Pie.

Dickey’s has over 550 locations across the United States and six other countries including the store at 3731 Oleander Drive in Myrtle Beach.

Review: Great Tasting Fast Food Alternative at Kosta Bowl

We had a great experience in Conway today. Off on a road trip, we decided to stop at the Kosta Bowl on Main Street. Truth is we didn’t know what to expect. Boy, were we very pleasantly surprised!

The store looks great and the staff friendly and attentive. And they were patient. After all, there are lot of great looking options to choose from.

So what is a Kosta Bowl? Better than trying to describe the concept let me tell you about mine.

I ordered the Goin’ Green Bowl. At the bottom is a chilled green “base” that’s topped with goodies. The base is somewhere between an ice cream and a pudding. On top is half a sliced banana and big, thick slices of kiwi. Toasted granola gives the mixture a nice, crunchy texture and coconut flakes add a taste of sweetness. The whole masterpiece is topped with a drizzle of almond butter and honey.

Others got the Palmetto Bowl, acai topped with pineapple, bananas, granola, honey and coconut flakes and the Nutty Bowl. The Nutty Bowl also had acai with fresh strawberries, bananas, granola, coconut flakes, honey, Nutella and peanut butter.

As one of the people in our party remarked, “This tastes like real food!”

These are not snacks. These are meals. The Kosta Bowl measures 5 ½ inches in diameter and is 3 inches deep and it arrives filled to the top. Along with 27 different bowls (including oatmeal), there are 12 Smoothies and 4 different fruit and yogurt parfaits. Bowls range from $9 to $11, Smoothies are $7 and the Parfaits $4.75.

It’s interesting to mention that Kosta Bowls was founded by a Myrtle Beach local. Already, there are three Kosta Bowls in the Greater Grand Strand with, according to the website, another on the way. And no doubt, many, many more to come.

A great place to eat and a great story. Spread the word.

Help Us Find the McDonald’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Up north, the arrival of the McDonald’s Pumpkin Spice Latte is a BIG event. It’s bigger than college football, bigger even than deer season.
About this time of year, crowds begin to form outside the local McDonald’s in the evenings after work. People bring their kids and they stand in the crisp autumn air and peer into the windows and smear them with their hot breath. Day after day they wait.

And then it happens. The Pumpkin Spice Lattes are in! How happy the people are!

Why is this so important to people? The McDonald’s Pumpkin Spice Latte is perfect for warming up in the aforementioned crisp autumn air. It’s freshly brewed and spiced to perfection with hints of pumpkin and cinnamon flavors. Yes, steamed with whole or nonfat milk, it’s a delicious latte treat that’s cozy and relaxing and worth every minute of waiting. And it only costs a couple of bucks, maybe three or so.

And now the bad news – badder than even the seeming absence of Hungry Howie Pumpkin Spice Bread in local shops – is that Pumpkin Spice Lattes are only available at SELECT McDonald’s and of ALL the McDonald’s along the Grand Strand, we can’t find one that has the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Now that doesn’t mean it’s not there. It just means that we haven’t found it yet.

We’ll keep looking.
Please report in if you find it.
