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.

9 Things All Mexican Food Addicts Know All Too Well

Don't come between me and my Mexican food.

In the city I grew up in, there is a Mexican restaurant just about every five miles. They are the after school hangouts and first date go-to's for most of the kids here, especially the high school girls.

I know the servers at my favorite one know my order almost every time I go in there (at least once a week). However, a lot of people apparently get tired of eating Mexican food about twice a week... but I sure don't. If you are a Mexican food addict like me, I am sure you know at least a few of these yourself.

1. Cheese dip tastes like heaven and you have to have it.

That amazing creamy white cheese dip put on a perfectly salted chip is enough to make your day better. Forget the actual food---we'd be content living off of cheese dip and chips for the rest of our lives. Our restaurant trip is not complete without an order of it and if you are lucky enough to get your favorite waiter, maybe even get a large bowl for the night.

2. You never have to look at the menu.

We know when we decide to go what we are having and it is probably the exact same plate we order each time. I am sure the servers laugh after I order some days because there is only three things I rotate between. My burrito is always my go-to, unless I am feeling fancy.

3. Some of the servers know who you are when you walk in the door.

Either by first name or by order they know us. You are the ones that they tell to pick your own seat and already have your drink order placed by the time you sit down.

4. Your boyfriend/ girlfriend puts you on Mexican restaurant restriction on date night.

You drag them there so much, they get tired of eating there. So much so, they flat out say no when you ask to go there on date night. I mean, how does someone get tired of Mexican food to begin with though?

5. You can hum some of the songs that come on.

We may not know what they are saying in the song, but we know the song---trust us. We are in there so much we remember them. Don't ask any questions when we start humming.

6. You "have" a parking spot.

Do not park in my parking spot that is not actually my parking spot, but is my parking spot. Got it? Just do not do it. That starts my meal bad when you take my normal spot.

7. You used to hangout there all the time after school.

It was the hangout spot. Forget the nasty school lunch--- everyone goes to eat Mexican after school. It's the cool thing to do and it started your addiction.

8. You always want to introduce new people to your favorite restaurant.

Oh, you aced that exam? Let's go eat at this amazing Mexican restaurant I love! We always want to find people to go there to eat with so we always introduce new people to it.

9. People always pick on you about your addiction.

Yes, I love Mexican food. Go ahead and tag me in all the memes on Facebook about tacos. As long as I have my Mexican food, I am fine with that.

All in all, we LOVE our Mexican food and our go-to restaurants--- so here is your warning. Don't come between me and my Mexican food.

The 3 Best 21st Birthday Gifts For Your BFF

Cheers to 21 years!


It's an odd time in your life when half of your friends go out to the bar on Saturday night and the other half sits in and watches movies. Now, depending on your friend, you have three ways that your 21st birthday gift idea can go.

1. For The Chill Friend


If you have that one friend who always seems to be the rule follower and doesn't ever really go out and let their hair down, there is only one way to go: Lots Of Liquor. It's finally there chance to go out and get crazy. You, as their honorary bff, have no choice but to go all out and get them a full on basket of individual liquor bottles, bottles of mixers, and goodies to snack on! Another gift you're going to be obligated to throw in, though they may not notice, is that you'll be deemed the responsible one. Switch roles for a night and make sure your friend isn't totally re-tasting what they'd eaten for dinner... you want them to at least last through the pregame.

2. For The Party Friend


We've all got the friend who's been breaking rules since they were able to walk. High school came around and you weren't even the least bit surprised that they were pregaming the football games in the parking lot. So, to them, happy 21st just means they can throw away their fake ID and use their real one. If this is the case, it's safe to assume they have all the necessary alcohol they want and they also already know what they like. The best gift to a party happy friend is a nice recovery basket for the next day. This should be stuffed with all the necessities, Advil, Pedialyte, and other the other day after must-haves.

3. For The Normal Friend


All of our friends are not going to be crazy, out-of-hand rule breakers or goody-too-shoes. Sometimes you're going to have a friend who plays by the rules... most of the time. If this is the case, there is only one way to go: a little bit of both. You could probably be safe with a cute hand painted wine glass and a bottle of their favorite, but where is the fun in that? They know enough about alcohol to assume they will surely need that hangover kit the next day, but not enough to have it stocked and ready to party on their big day.
