Treats To Satisfy Every Sweet Tooth

Treats To Satisfy Every Sweet Tooth


Cold, dreary weather has abruptly encroached Auburn’s typically sunny campus. What better way to fight the cold-weather-blues than with delicious sweet treats? 

Auburn’s restaurants boast a plethora of options to cheer you up, no matter your budget or taste buds. Amongst these 10 sugary plates, you’re bound to find at least one to satisfy your inner sweet tooth:      

1. For The Traditional: Toomer’s Ice Cream Sandwich

If you have an Instagram, there is no doubt that you have seen a picture of this masterpiece. Pick your favorite ice cream flavor to be sandwiched between two homemade chocolate chip cookies. One bite and you will realize there is no mystery as to why the ice cream sandwiches at Toomer’s Drugs are a traditional favorite.

2. For Breakfast Lovers: Bizilia’s Muffinini

Bizilia’s serves a breakfast delight that can be enjoyed at any time of day. The muffinini is your choice of muffin, cut in half and warmed on a Panini grill, served with a melted slab of butter. Who knew simple could taste so delectable?

3. For Chocolate Lovers: Taziki’s Chocolate Cake

Got a hankering for chocolate? Pop into Taziki’s for a slice of decadent chocolate cake. Whether you choose to feast on their Mediterranean cuisine or simply go for dessert, this cake is bound to impress, as well as satisfy your craving. 

4. For Bargainers: Applebee’s Maple Butter Blondie

Applebee’s infamous slogan “Eatin’ good in the neighborhood,” proves to be accurate after one bite of their blondie, which is a sweeter, maple version of a brownie. Go any night after 10:00 and chow down on any of their desserts for half price. A good deal never tasted so sweet! 

5. For The “Health-Conscious:” TCBY Frozen Yogurt

Auburn boasts a variety of frozen yogurt stores to choose from. TCBY has remained a true favorite of mine amidst the “fro-yo” trend. Whether scoop or soft-serve, indulge in  a variety of creamy frozen yogurt, which contains less calories and fat than regular ice cream.

6. For Fruit Lovers: Tiger Gourmet’s Lemon Square 

Tiger Gourmet is a hidden treasure for sweets fanatics. Located on Dean Road, the shop sells perfect tailgating and party food, including scrumptious baked goods. Stop by and select a just-baked-treat, such as a lemon square, which is a tantalizing combination of tart fruit and sweet graham crust, topped with fresh powdered sugar.

7. For Mr. Fancy Pants: Crepe Myrtle Café Dessert Crepes 

For a little taste of France, visit the charming Crepe Myrtle Café and treat yourself to a lip-smacking crepe filled with Nutella, bananas, and strawberries. Don’t forget the cool whipped cream to top it off!

8. For The Milkshake Maniac: CheeburgerCheeburger’s Milkshakes

With a smorgasbord of flavors to choose from, the milkshake menu at this burger joint offers something for everyone! From plain vanilla, gingerbread cookie dough and other extravagant flavors, these creamy shakes are an unbeatable treat to sip your craving away!

9. For The Big Appetites: BurgerFi Custard Concrete

BurgerFi serves old-fashioned custard, which is a thick, creamy, frozen dessert. The red velvet custard concrete is a popular choice, stuffed with red velvet cake pieces. Heavier than ice cream, custard is a more filling and richer treat, so you might want to skip the fries with your hamburger.

10. For Candy Bar Fanatics: Mylk’s Heath Bar Cookie

Auburn’s newest cookie shop, Mylk’s, is a fantastic addition, as well as a perfect snack, between classes. Conveniently located downtown on Magnolia, Mylk’s offers creative cookie flavors, as well as delicious spin-offs on the classic cookie. Looking at all the cookies behind the counter is bound to make your mouth water, but I’ve found that the Heath Bar cookie can’t be beat. Made with real Heath toffee pieces and drizzled with chocolate fudge, this cookie is baked to perfection.     

Whether you’re down-in-the-dumps from a recent breakup, the change of weather, or being stuck in the library, lift your spirits with one (or all) of these delectable delights, without having to dirty up your spatula or break the bank. Let’s face it; there isn’t much that a satisfying dessert can’t cure.

11 Things All Coffee Addicts Espresso To Their Non-Coffee Drinking Friends

I do always have coffee in my hand. Thank you for noticing.

Every coffee enthusiast can relate to at least a few of these points. If you can relate to each one on a personal level then it may be time to give your body a rest and give coffee up for Lent ... just kidding, calm down and grab a latte.

1. The joy of finding a new coffee shop

Frickin love that sh*t. New coffee shops open up so many new possibilities. Reading spot, homework spot, working spot, blogging spot … new coffee-drinking spot.

2. Getting a mug as a gift

Mugs are great gifts regardless, but getting a brand-new mug to hold steaming hot coffee in is just amazing. Bonus points if the mug is actually adorable, funny, etc.

3. Waking up to coffee brewing

Programmable coffee pots are where it’s at. Yes, of course, I would like my coffee to brew two minutes before my alarm goes off so that the entire apartment smells like a warm coffee bean cloud when I awaken from my slumber.

4. People trying to speak to you before you’ve had your coffee

OH, FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE, JUST SHUT UP. Avoiding eye contact or looking at you like I could potentially punch you in your face means that I don’t need your words at this time. Thank you, please return with your conversation started after I’ve consumed some caffeine.

5. Knowing a “small” coffee will never cut it

You think I’m going to survive all day on one small cup of coffee? You would be completely incorrect.

6. Having a day where you just need an IV drip of coffee

Yep, just straight into the vein would be great.

7. Constantly spilling coffee on yourself because you ALWAYS have a cup in-hand

Yes, I’m aware that I have a coffee stain on my shirt. No, I’m not going to change because I’ll just get a coffee stain on the new shirt I put on.

8. Getting over “coffee breath”

That’s just how I smell now. I have accepted it.

9. Trying to explain that you actually like black coffee

It does not taste like feet. I love it. Actually, genuinely love to drink it. So no, I don’t need room for cream.

10. Being able to name a brand of coffee without seeing the label

“Oh yes, that’s Coffee Bean Direct Dark Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.”

11. Owning more coffee mugs than any twelve people would ever need

The mug collections get seriously impressive. Bump showing off this majestic piece of art I have hanging on the wall, check out my 80+ coffee mugs.

9 Thoughts You Have While Walking To Class

9. "I have so much to do after class."

When you are walking to class, your mind is probably going to a million different places. Personally, I know I have so many thoughts going through my head, so here are some of the thoughts I have while I am walking to class.

1. "Why is east so far away from everything?"

Being a freshman, every time I wanna go somewhere that is outside of east residence halls, I dread it. Even if something seems close like the creamery, it's far, trust me.

2. "Wow, it is way colder than I thought... oh well."

The weather here in state college is so weird. One day it is 30 and snowing and the next day it is 55 and beautiful. So, it is not uncommon to walk outside and realize that you are defiantly not dressed properly. However, when you have somewhere to be, you just have to accept it and keep going.

3. "Ok so I have 15 minutes to get to my class that is 12 minutes away... better pick up the pace."

I am from New York and since going to a school in Pennsylvania, I have noticed that I walk very fast. Yet, that doesn't stop me from going even faster when I don't think I am going to make it to class.

4. " Why didn't I take the bus?"

There is always that moment of weakness when you are walking and start questioning why you are killing yourself when you could have taken the bus. By the time you realize this, it's already too late to get on the bus.

5. "I wonder if people can see me looking at them through my sunglasses."

When you are walking to class, no doubt, you are people watching. But this can be very awkward. Wearing sunglasses can help, but there is always that moment when you wonder if people can see your eyes through your sunglasses.

6. "Oh no, they can definitely tell I was looking ok, act cool."

At this point, you might as well take a quick moment to panic and just keep going. But honestly, you probably won’t ever see that person again so who cares.

7. "I really like her outfit."

It is so hard to be motivated to actually look good for class, so, when you see someone that is, it makes you question everything about how you look.

8. "What should I eat after class?"

I don't know about you, but a constant thought throughout my day is what my next meal is going to be and when. Walking to class is a great way to figure that out. You would be surprised how much you actually have to plan when to eat, because of how busy you are.

9. "I have so much to do after class..."

In college, you are never really in the present. You are constantly thinking and planning the rest of your day and maybe even the rest of your week. So, during that walk to class, I can almost guarantee that you are thinking about something other than the class you are on your way to.

Everything in college is fast paced and needs to be planned out to the minute. Those walks to class when you have nothing else to do is a great time to be planning or if you are like me, to just let your mind wander and think about whatever is going on infront of you.
