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.

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.

Warning: CDC Says Pumpkin Spice Craze is Spreading Uncontrolled

The Honey Baked Ham company is introducing a new pumpkin spice glazed turkey breast.

The new Pumpkin Spice Glazed Turkey Breast is available smoked or roasted, and can be purchased as a whole turkey breast, by the slice, or as a part of the Winner Turkey Dinner (includes turkey breast, two heat and serve sides, and a package of King’s Hawaiian Rolls).

The all-white breast weighs in at 2.5 lbs and serves from six to eight guests. The flavor is described as sweet and crunchy.”

There is currently no price listed for the Pumpkin Spice Glazed Turkey Breast but the highly rated traditional Honey Baked Ham turkey breast costs $39. That’s about twice the cost of the same amount of Cracker Barrel deli turkey at Walmart which means it’s definitely not a cheap eat and shouldn’t be on this page.

It can, however, be purchased at Honey Baked Ham through October 31, as supplies last.

There is one listed Honey Baked Ham location in the Grand Strand and it’s at 3600 Highway 17 South in North Myrtle Beach

Pumpkin Returns to Starbucks, New Apple Crisp Macchiato

As it has for the past two decades, pumpkin returns to Starbucks including the fall favorite Pumpkin Spice Latte and Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. Seasonal fall bakery items Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin and Pumpkin Scone will also return to join the Pumpkin Loaf, which is available year-around.

New to the menu is Iced Apple Crisp Macchiato which features the flavors of a gooey apple pie swirl into espresso, milk and ice. It is topped with a caramelized spiced apple drizzle.

Krispy Kreme Wow! Three Fall Flavors in Three Weeks

We are sooooo lucky to live on the Grand Strand. Forget the beach. We have four Krispy Kreme stores. Over the next three weeks, those four stores will be offering three awesome fall flavors, two of them new.

Starting on September 6 and running until the 12th, the flavors are: Pumpkin Spice Original Glazed – An Original Glazed doughnut transformed by the perfect amount of pumpkin spice flavor.

Pumpkin Spice Original Filled, Cheesecake – A Pumpkin Spice Original Glazed doughnut with a creamy cheesecake filing topped with an icing drizzle.

But wait.There’s more. From September 13th through the 19th, it’s new Apple Cider Glazed doughnuts. From September 20th through the 26th, it’s the new Maple Glaze.
