The machines at Yummieland Frozen Yogurt safeguard 12 different flavors of real frozen yogurt each day. Customers can self-serve creamy flavors such as sugar-free strawberry, as well as seasonal offerings. A toppings bar waits with more than 70 different toppings, such as Oreo chips, fresh mango, cookie dough, and cheesecake pieces to help create customized treats.
Since first experimenting with soft serve more than 70 years ago, Dairy Queen has expanded its menu to include both ice-cream creations and American-style eats. The popcorn shrimp basket touts lightly battered morsels alongside coleslaw and fries ($5.69), and the FlameThrower burger keeps fire alarms on their toes with a half-pound beef patty ignited by pepper jack cheese and jalapeño bacon ($4.29).
Dixie Belle's early morning menu clears cobwebs from the crannies of sleepy appetites with generous portions of protein-packed morning egg combinations ($3.25–$6.99), three-egg omelettes ($4.29–$7.25), early bird egg, biscuit, and potato platters ($1.99), and home-style house specialties. Wake up your sensory makeup with a South of the Border omelette, stuffed with sausage, cheese, tomato, and onion and folded in a flour tortilla with salsa ($6.99), or sink your fork's sweet little teeth into three pieces of french toast ($3.99) or three pancakes ($3.99). When the breakfast bell starts to come down with the midday droopies, get your hands on some handheld lunch grub, such as a hamburger on a grilled bun with home fries ($6.50), a country-fried steak sandwich on a grilled bun with home fries ($5.99), or egg salad and bacon on toast ($3.50).
ShakeOut cools fiery mouths and room-temperature gullets with more than 100 flavors of carefully constructed milkshakes. A one-flavor shake ($3.99 regular, $4.99 large) comes in such diverse varieties as honey bun, blackberry, Twizzlers strawberry, or Haribo gummy bears. Like in the Iowa caucus, customers vote with their tongues to determine ShakeOut’s top 10 flavors, the top honors of which currently belong to the pairing of strawberry cheesecake and Oreo. Extra flavors ($0.99 each) allow snack sages to combine Apple Jacks, jellybeans, and peanut butter for a milkshake that shares the same ingredients as mincemeat pie. Patrons sit at tables or stools while hungry eyes gobble bright pink and yellow decor.
One of the largest locally owned gourmet coffee and tea shops in the U.S., Barnie's offers more than 50 different gourmet coffees with 15 delectable flavors. Barnie's typically brews four different fresh coffees each day, and a ballroom of smoothies and lattes waltzes alongside mochas, espressos, and cappuccinos. Sit and sip a freshly brewed cup ($1.59+) or begin hoarding bags of pre-ground or whole-bean specialties such as Santa's White Christmas ($9.49/12 oz.)—a combination of Barnie's blended coffee with hints of coconut, sweet caramel, and vanilla guaranteed to keep you alert during the season when homes are most vulnerable to invasion by diabolically generous bearded elves. Recently unfrozen British cavemen can warm up with signature teas such as organic raspberry truffle and white-ginger peach, while all others can hose down tongue gardens with summer specials such as the Barnie Palmer ($2.29–$2.59), a blend of strawberry iced tea and mango lemonade.
