Besides the endless sunshine and warmer temps, summer always has us craving new eats – from something citrus to ice cold sweet treats. With everything going on this season, you bet we put trying everything on this list on our summer bucket list.We love tasting all the new items that make their way on the menus of our eateries, and we’ll be the first to tell you, none of these disappoint! Take a peek at the limited-time items you can indulge in this summer…

Pretzel Maker

What could possibly be better than a combination of mozzarella sticks and pretzel bites?! The new Mozzarella Pretzel Bites are the perfect indulgence and come in portion sizes of 8 or 16 bites – great for a quick snack while getting your shop on!

Dairy Queen

We love every time Dairy Queen rolls out ‘Blizzards of the Month.’ Not only do they create the greatest combinations of sweet treats, it gives us an extra excuse to stop by more often to try something new! This months can’t-miss blizzards are Frosted Fudge Brownie and Salted Caramel Blondie Blizzard.


Calling all shrimp lovers –  you won’t want to miss this… Qdoba has added 3 new shrimp entrees to the menu and we keep going back for more! Try the new Surf and Turf Burrito Bowl, Fire-Roasted Shrimp Salad or the Tropical Shrimp Taco.

A bonus? Queso Diablo is BACK by popular demand! This smoky and spicy dip is perfect for those who crave a little kick in their meal (and can take some heat).


It’s no secret that Chili’s is known for their delicious libations, and their new summer cocktails are no exception! Meet your new after-hours sips: The Blue Margarita, made with Jose Cuervo Traditional Silver Tequila, DeKuyper Blue Curacao and pineapple juice; or the Coconut State Of Mind, made with Blue Chair Bay Coconut Spiced Rum, strawberry puree and pineapple juice.

Lighthouse Coffee

Here for the summer, try the new Blended Strawberry Lemonade! Smooth and refreshing, this frozen sip is the perfect pick-me-up for any time of the day.


Penera always knows how to keep our taste buds wanting more. When the seasons change, they make additions to their menu that have us going back for seconds, time and time again. Here’s what you can look forward to this summer:

  • Southwest Chile Ranch Lime Salad with Chicken
