Pumpkin Spice Hungry Howie Bread Starting Today???

Rumor has it that Hungry Howie’s has introduced new Pumpkin Spice Howie Bread, starting today. Instead of the regular Howie Bread that’s covered in cheese, pepperoni, or garlic butter, this new offering is covered in butter then sprinkled with warm pumpkin spice. Like other Howie breads, it’s served with sweet icing.

Says one person who has reportedly tasted the Pumpkin Spice Howie Bread, “It’s like a pumpkin cinnamon roll but in bread stick form.” Again, supposedly, this new fall-inspired bread will be available starting today. We keep saying “supposedly” because we don’t see Pumpkin Spiced Howie Bread on their menu. What we see is:

Stuffed, Pepperoni Stuffed, Bacon Stuffed, Jalapeno Stuffed, Generic Howie Bread, 3 Cheeser Howie Bread, Cinnamon, Cajun and Deep Dish 3 Cheeser. But no Pumpkin Spiced Howie Bread.Each is $5.00 for 16 pieces.

There are three Hungry Howie’s in the Greater Grand Strand that we know of:

1601 South Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach

4270 River Oaks Drive, Carolina Forest

4008 Highway 17 South, North Myrtle Beach
