Fall Flavored Eats in the Quad Cities
If you enjoy fall flavors, there is no shortage of places to find them around the Quad Cities. Whitey's is now selling their Pumpkin ice cream. And the Quad City Times says "Lagomarcino's has officially dubbed it #caramelappleseason."
So yes, if you like caramel apples, pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin spiced anything you're in luck.
Bent River Brewery is offering their Sweet Potato Ale at both the Moline and Rock Island locations. Great River Brewery has tapped into the fall with their limited edition Pumpkin Beer.
Kernel Cody's Popcorn Shoppe is offering a caramel apple pop corn that sold out at Apple Fest on Sunday. Don't worry they're making more every day. Baked Beer and Bread in East Davenport has a caramel apple sticky bun coated in peanuts and caramel. They're also rolling out a fall dessert menu this week.
Plus, you can't forget the obvious. Starbucks' Pumpkin Spiced Latte. And the pumpkin pie variations offered by Village Inn. Although, I'd rather have a French Silk pie for dessert on thanksgiving than a pumpkin pie.
I'm not a big fall flavors guy. I'll leave more of that to my wife Kathy. That said there are two items that interest me: The Sweet Potato Ale from Bent River and Kernel Cody's caramel apple pop corn. First, I've liked the beers' I've tried from Bent River. Even some I thought I probably wouldn't. So I have to try the ale. Second, I'm a flavored pop corn guy. While you won't see me eating an actual caramel apple anytime soon, I'm intrigued enough to try the caramel apple pop corn. I think I'd like that, a lot.
