Detroit Wing Company menu

My oh my! There are so many different wing sauces to choose from at Detroit Wing Company. This wing place offers up 17 different sauces ranging from mild to super spicy and everything in between. You can choose from either Classic Wings or Boneless Wings. My little family of 3 stopped in for a late lunch and we went with the 24-piece Classic Wings and we were able to choose 4 different flavors.

The Detroit Wing Company has some incredible wings but there is a lot more to their menu, so let’s explore it a bit!

They have chicken tenders on the menu, along with their DWC mac & cheese, fries with your choice of wing sauce, and they also have poutine! The poutine gravy is actually cooked for a whole 24 hours before serving so that you can have that amazing gravy flavor.

Detroit Wing Company Flavors

Here is the part of the menu that gets super fun to order from. Here is where you decide which of these 17 wing sauces will be going on your order of wings at Detroit Wing Company. They have so many interesting sauces to choose from, it is almost difficult to narrow it down here! They all sound excellent.

For those of you who like it on the mild side there are wing sauces like Butter Cheese, Lemon Pepper, Garlic Parmesan, Honey BBQ, and more. For the spicy thrillseekers at Detroit Wing Company you can go with the Calypso Heat (which is their hottest wing sauce!), Sweet Heat, Hot Garlic, and Habanero Ranch.

Happy Hour at Detroit Wing Company

If you love to chow down on boneless wings make sure you swing by DWC between the hours of 3-5pm. You can score yourself some boneless wings at 40% off. This is a great deal that is just too good to pass up!

What my family ordered

We went with a 24-piece order of wings and were able to choose from 4 different sauces for that size order. We went with Garlic Parmesan, Asian Orange, Butter Cheese, and Carolina Gold BBQ. It was hard to narrow our choices down to only 4 since they all sounded so excellent! I think we definitely made the right choices here though!

The Garlic Parmesan wings were hands-down my favorite of the four flavors that we gave a whirl! The Garlic Parmesan wings have a white creamy sauce and have a VERY potent flavor of garlic and also some Parmesan cheese. I was having a foodgasm at the table with that particular flavor and I swear to you, no doubt I looked like a dirty pig tearing into these wings. This flavor was SUPER sloppy but I do say that in the nicest way. The next time I stop in at the Detroit Wing Company my family will definitely be ordering that flavor once again.

Butter Cheese was quite the interesting wing flavor! I will say that I have never in my life had a wing quite like that. The Butter Cheese is a very mild wing and it will remind you of garlic crust from a cheesy pizza! Though similar to ingredients to the Garlic Parmesan (garlic and Parmesan), the Butter Cheese is more of a fraternal twin.

Asian Orange was a delightful flavor that we also enjoyed. This Asian flavored wing has a very strong taste of orange to it. My daughter, Chloe who is 9, was not a fan of this particular flavor. She did say that the orange flavor was a bit overpowering. No worries though, my husband and I did find this flavor appealing and would happily order this flavor again.

The Carolina Gold BBQ flavor at Detroit Wing Company is a great choice if you enjoy BBQ wings with a not too sweet and not too spicy flavor. This flavor is smack dab right in the middle of the flavor board.

Final thoughts

I hope that my Detroit Wing Company review will inspire you to head on over to 1 of their 5 locations so you can give these wings a whirl! I usually go to Buffalo Wild Wings when that wing craving hits me but after trying out the wings at DWC, that will now be our go-to place. My little family of 3 was highly pleased with our first ever visit to the Eastpointe location. We also really appreciated the friendly staff. We are looking forward to exploring the menu a bit more on our next visit to the Detroit Wing Company.

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers REVIEW – The Hidden Gem On Gratiot With The Best Burgers In Town

Here is a little bit of background on me and Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers. They opened up their first burger joint nearly a decade ago in Mount Clemens. My little family lived only a hop, skip, and a jump away when they had that location. I actually used to push my daughter over there in her stroller and cut up a Seeburger’s Cheeseburger for her to eat (she is 9 now and still a huge fan!). My family has been dining at Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers since day one and we keep on coming back because you will not find a better cheeseburger slider around in a huge radius! This is our go-to destination for the ultimate “cheat day” meal. There is just something about Seeburger’s! They truly do work at slapping a smile upon your face and making your belly feel happiness and joy. So today I am sharing my Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers review on the blog.

You might not have ever heard about Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers and I hate to break it to you but you have been missing out big time! These addictive little burgers are pure bliss to chow down on, and will have you keep coming back for more! I think of Seeburger’s as a bit of a hidden gem. It is tucked away on Gratiot and nestled next to a party store and only a couple of buildings away from White Castle, another slider destination. Bold move huh to have a slider shop in such close proximity to another slider spot, but it works! Todd Seeburger is the owner and he has his faithful following of slider connoisseurs. I am reaching out to you today in hopes of spreading the word about this burger joint because I believe it is important that you know about it if you love a good burger and a fantastic deal on them.

My dad and I stopped into Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers on Gratiot for lunch. When you step into this location you can feel a good vibe as soon as you walk through the door. This location has car and cruising memorabilia on display. Gratiot is a cruising destination of many during the warmer summer months in Michigan. Cruising has been happening on Gratiot for decades and my dad is one of the original cruisers from way back in the day.

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers FAMOUS Sliders

At Seeburger’s their claim to fame is definitely due to the large success of their cheeseburger sliders. These are some very satisfying little morsels of heaven! You can purchase single sliders for $1.65, or you can purchase a combo for $7.07, buy a half dozen for $7.99, or purchase an entire dozen for $14.99.

 

Here are some photos of their famous cheeseburger sliders. Enjoy!!

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers is more than just sliders

This Give It A Whirl Girl blog is all about trying new things and giving them a whirl. Since I have tried their cheeseburger sliders a hundred dozen times, today I will be sharing my experience with the Big Clem Burger and the Phat Gratiot Burger. My dad and I stopped in for lunch and today I am sharing my experience of that satisfying and deeply filling lunch.

I am including the Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers menu down below so you can scope out all of their fantastic offerings.

Big Burgers at Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers

The Big Clem

The Big Clem burger features two hamburger patties with American cheese, lettuce, Thousand Island dressing, and then this juicy burger is topped off with an onion ring the size of a donut!

I enjoyed this Big Clem Burger big time, guys!! I have never in my life had a burger quite like this. That gigantic onion ring that topped off my burger really hit the spot! The thousand island dressing on this cheeseburger really gave off a Big Mac vibe, only better. I am not a patron of McDonald’s… like ever! This Big Clem Burger puts the Big Mac to shame. At Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers, you get fresh beef, never frozen on your burger. You really can tell the difference. The owner, Todd Seeburger, has a lot of pride about his burgers and he uses only the best ingredients to keep his customers and loyal following happy.

The Phat Gratiot Burger

The Phat Gratiot Burger at Seeburger’s is a double stacked hamburger with pepperjack cheese, BBQ sauce, bacon, and frizzy onions.

This right here is the burger that my dad tried out. My father was ooo’ing and ahh’ing the entire time he ate this burger and he really tried to take his time so he could savor each and every bite of it. This burger earned a spot on my to-do list. l have never had a burger with bbq sauce on it before but I think the combo of bbq sauce and pepper jack cheese might just be a match made in heaven.

Sides at Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers

There are plenty of sides that you can order at Seeburger’s. I have tried their basket of seasoned fries plenty of times and I can attest to the fact that their fries are outrageously great! The onion rings here are the biggest I have ever seen in my life. I also highly recommend the deep-fried mushrooms here if you are a mushroom-lover like me! Mmm mmm good! Pickle chips and mozzarella cheese sticks are also a great choice.

A little Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers nostalgia!

I am including a few photos below to showcase just how much my family loves this place! My daughter, Chloe, is now 9 years old and she is a huge fan! My family has been alongside Seeburger’s since day one when they had the Mount Clemens location. I knew as soon as I tried these the first time, that Seeburger’s would be a huge success.

Seeburger's Cheeseburgers REVIEW by Give It A Whirl Girl - Roseville, MI Burgers and Sliders

 

 

How-To Groupon Like A Boss In Macomb County! How I Spent 3 Groupons In One Day And Had A Very Frugal Day!

I will admit that I do check the Groupon site often for good deals. If I see a good deal that is just way too good to pass up, then you better believe it, I will grab that Groupon! Yesterday I managed to have quite a frugal day with 3 Groupons. I had a fun-filled day with some good sweets and treats, and a dinner to go along with it! Groupons geared towards dining are always a great way to experience something new and give it a whirl! These Groupons allow you to enjoy food and drink at a deeply discounted price.

This Groupon post is going to cover restaurants that are in the Southeast area of Michigan. I will share with you how you can score some great deals at these Michigan establishments. I am sharing how I Groupon’ed like a boss and had an incredibly delicious FRUGAL day!

How Groupon Works

Groupon is very easy to use. For the purpose of this post, I will only be sharing how to use the dining Groupons. There are many other types of Groupons available though! You simply head on over to the Groupon site or download the app. Choose the LOCAL tab at the top and find the Food & Drink category. Click onto that food & drink category and see what local Groupon deals are happening in your area.

How to get your Groupon

We just recently used a Buoy 12 Groupon this past weekend so I will use that as an example here. Buoy 12 is located in my area of St. Clair Shores, MI. They have two different offers available. One of those offers is for 2 people to receive a $25 voucher (currently sold out but keep checking back) or you can purchase a $50 voucher for four people at the discounted price of $30. So for $30 you get $50 worth of food on your next visit to Buoy 12. That is a discounted price of 40% off.

At time of publication (5/20/2019) you can use the Groupon coupon code SAVE3 to save even more!

Groupon coupon codes

BUT you can save even more if you have a Groupon coupon code, which is often available! Be sure to always check for Groupon coupon codes prior to checking out.

How to redeem your Groupon for dining

There are two ways you can present your Groupon when you are ready to redeem it. You can either print out the voucher on your printer at home OR you can download the Groupon app and show the server the Groupon on your mobile device.

Our first Groupon we spent was at Starbucks

I got quite lucky with the Starbucks Groupon. The Starbucks Groupons are only by invite-only. I spent $5 for the Groupon and ended up with $10 to spend at Starbucks.

Here is what I purchased at Starbucks: 1 S’mores Frappucino and 1 Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappucino.

I paid only $1.13 for two Frappucinos out-of-pocket. The Groupon was $5. So the total cost was $6.13. Not too shabby for two rather expensive frozen drinks! Starbucks is always just a fancy splurge item for me, so I appreciated that Groupon offer!

Second Groupon we used was at Sagano Japanese Steakhouse

Sagano Japanese Steakhouse currently has two different locations on Groupon: the Warren Japanese Steakhouse and the Clarkston Japanese Steakhouse location. We visited the Warren location so I will be reviewing that experience here.

Read the fine print

Please always read the fine print on Groupons! Sagano Japanese Steakhouse is a shining example of that! For example, you can not use a Groupon at Sagano within 24 hours of purchasing the Groupon. Also, there are menu restrictions on what exactly the Groupon can be used for. We found out the hard way these two things!

What we ordered at Sagano

At Sagano Japanese Steakhouse my husband and I ordered a cucumber sushi roll (please not that you can’t use the Groupon for sushi rolls here. We paid separate for the sushi), and we ordered the chicken teriyaki entree and the beef teriyaki entree. My husband, my daughter Chloe who is 9, and I shared the 2 entrees and that was plenty for the 3 of us. Our entrees came with a soup and a salad, which was wonderful and delicious! We were very pleased with our teriyaki dishes. They had had a great flavor and the portion size was perfect!

How we got the most out of our Sagano Groupon

We had the $30 Groupon for Sagano. The beef teriyaki was $16.95 and the chicken teriyaki entree was $12.95. Our $30 Sagano Groupon covered the cost of the two teriyaki entrees. Our cucumber sushi roll was $3.50 and then we had to leave a tip. I gave the waitress a great tip because she was absolutely awesome, I must say! We really felt that the service at Sagano was excellent.

The Sagano Groupon is PERFECT for HIBACHI!

The Sagano Japanese Steakhouse Groupon is perfect for giving the hibachi grill a whirl. This image below is of my scallop hibachi dish that I got on a previous visit to Sagano. My family of 3 were quite impressed with our hibachi dinners. When we dined at the hibachi grill on that visit we had a fantastic chef. He had a great sense of humor and was very entertaining. Of course there were big flames and an onion volcano and my daughter really enjoyed the theatrics of the Japanese chef that cooked our meals.

Here is the hibachi scallops at Sagano Japanese Steakhouse. You can use the Groupon for the hibachi grill.

And finally, for dessert, we used a Menchie’s Groupon

We are big fans of Menchie’s here in the Give It A Whirl Girl household so we could not pass this deal up! The Menchie’s Groupon is valid for two different locations: Warren and Shelby Township. The Menchie’s Groupon allows frozen yogurt enthusiasts (like me!) to purchase bundles of $5 Menchie’s vouchers for a discounted price.

2 $5 Menchie’s vouchers are $7

or 4 $5 Menchie’s vouchers are $14

Please be aware (and I found this out the hard way too because I skimmed over the fine print) that you can only use 1 $5 Menchie’s Groupon per visit!

Want to learn more about Menchie’s?

Read my Menchie’s Review on the blog!

If you are looking for a fun place to take the family for dessert, Menchie’s is the place to be! You are the creator of your frozen yogurt treat. Choose from several different frozen yogurt flavors and then top it all off at the unlimited toppings bar! Menchie’s charges by the ounce of your dessert creation, so if you want to keep the cost down don’t go too wild and crazy and keep your dessert down to a small or moderate size.

Pro Tip For Groupon! That is IF you are in the Southeast Michigan area

I am going to also let you know about one other FABULOUS GROUPON if you are local! That Groupon would be for Inyo Restaurant in Ferndale. If you are a sushi connoisseur like me you will absolutely love Inyo! You can see even more photos of this Asian fusion restaurant in my FAQ on the blog. Inyo Restaurant is currently in the top spot for my number one dining destination. You can score a tremendous deal to Inyo Ferndale on Groupon!

Final thoughts

I hope this post about Groupon dining will inspire you to give Groupon a whirl! There are so many restaurants that you can try out at a discounted price. This is a wonderful way to give some new establishments a whirl! My little family of 3 has discovered a ton of great places with Groupons and there are so many other places that we cannot wait to try! I have my eye on the Le Crepe Groupon.

Groupon is soooooo much more than just dining at restaurants! You can go scoop up some goods and take a trip with Groupon getaways!

Eastern Market Flower Day 2019 by Give It A Whirl Girl

Menchie's Frozen Yogurt (FROYO) REVIEW (Warren, MI)

Modern Cone Ice-Cream Shop REVIEW - St Clair Shores MI - GIVE IT A WHIRL GIRL

 

 



This was my first time ever visiting Eastern Market during Flower Day weekend. My mom and my daughter, Chloe who is 9, headed down to the city around 11 am. When we arrived it was total chaos to find a parking spot but we eventually found one over by the Dequindre Cut (after driving around for 25 minutes lol). I am so glad we didn’t just give up and go home since it took so long to find a spot. I was determined to visit Eastern Market Flower Day this year since Eastern Market is now one of my favorite places to visit in the warmer months in Michigan. I get super duper excited whenever I know that I will be heading over there. I also absolutely LOVE the DeVries & Company 1887 shop that is in the heart of it all. It is chock full of unique food & drink items, as well as gifts. I have a ton of fun looking around there and always make sure I take home something special. For this trip, it was black SQUID INK PASTA!

What is Eastern Market

If you are not sure what Eastern Market is, it is a very large farmer’s market venue that also has some other vendors there selling miscellaneous things. Eastern Market is nestled in the heart of the city of Detroit and it is a must-see place to visit if you are near the city. Each weekend in the warmer spring and summer months, Eastern Market is open for shopping. It is quite the busy, bustling place and it is advised to arrive early to have the best pick of everything. Though, I do tend to go in the later part of the day, before they close, when the vendors start deeply discounting all of their goods.

This post about my visit to Eastern Market Flower Day is full of colorful photos for your viewing pleasure.

You can read more about my visit to Eastern Market from last summer in this post on the blog.

That post has more photos of the produce (there are a ton of fruits and vegetables here) available.

And no Eastern Market visit is complete unless you visit DeVries & Company 1887!

DeVries & Company 1887 is a store that is a pure joy to visit when you are in the area of Eastern Market. This place is a go-to place for many cheese connoisseurs. This store is filled with some really interesting foods that you will not find on the shelf of your local grocery store. I ended up taking home some squid ink pasta, licorice candy, and some sour Michi-Gummies!

Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina REVIEW & A Cinco de Mayo Feast At This Mexican Restaurant In Clinton Township, MI

My husband and I were looking for a place to go for our date-night and since it was the day before Cinco de Mayo we were craving a big plate of Mexican food. We have driven past the Crazy Gringo restaurant many times before but never stopped in. The Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina is located in the 15 Mile Road and Gratiot area of Clinton Township so it was not far from where we live in St. Clair Shores.

Mexicantown in Detroit is usually our go-to place for that authentic taste and experience but my hubby did not feel like driving down to the city last night. So that is how we ended up here. Also, I almost always Google a restaurant before my first time going and I was impressed with the big plates of colorful food. This was the perfect Mexican restaurant to celebrate the Cinco de Mayo holiday!

My First impression of Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina

My first impression of the Crazy Gringo was how colorful and how fun the atmosphere is. The Crazy Gringo is not a restaurant for peace and quiet. It seems as though everyone was enjoying the atmosphere and just kicking back and having a great time. The first thing that catches your eye here is the bar that is all lit up with little colorful lights. When you see something like this, you know that you are in for a great time! The bar here looked very inviting and my craving for a blue margarita kicked into high gear!

You can also see that this Mexican restaurant has some daily specials for you to partake in as well.

The Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina Menu Highlights

The Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina restaurant has a great big menu that offers something for everyone. The portion sizes here are quite generous! You will not leave this Mexican restaurant hungry, that is for certain! Our dinners included a cup of Chicken Tortilla Soup and some chips and salsa. We love chowing down on those chips and salsa before our big platter of food arrives.

The entrees here at the Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina also include a good helping of some beans and rice.

Save room for dessert!

If you have any room in your tummy after your big Mexican feast here, there are also some traditional Mexican desserts available. I did not get a chance to give these a whirl, maybe next time? I have no doubt that the flan and the churros are on-point! That deep fried ice cream sure sounds interesting too!

Dessert menu for Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina – What will you order after your Mexican feast?

What we ordered at the Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina

First things first! Can’t go to a Mexican cantina without a margarita or a Corona with a lime sticking out of the top of it! I have not had a drop of any alcohol since September of 2018 for some medical reasons. I had a hard time saying no to a margarita here at the Crazy Gringo. A blue margarita with some salt on the rim and lime is tops for me! That has always been one of my favorite alcoholic beverages. I was pretty impressed with the smaller $7 margarita that I ordered.

My Electric Kiwi Margarita was made with tequila, blue curacao, blue island pucker, lime juice, and some sour mix. I did request an extra lime with my drink, though, and they did not give me one. Oh well, no biggie!

I ordered the Crazy Wet Burrito for myself because I love big fat, wet, smothered burritos! My husband is more of a fajita lover so he went with the chicken fajita dinner.

Their drink menu boasts that they have over 50 varieties of tequila available. Their House Margarita comes in a regular size for $7 and a boomba size for $10. If you want a top-shelf margarita (who doesn’t??) Those are $12 for the smaller size and $16 for the larger boomba size.

Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina also offers other specialty cocktails for your drinking pleasure! The Tequila Sunrise and the Mexican Sunset sound fabulous!

If you are thirsty for a shot, they also have them on their drink menu. The shots are $6.50 each. Here is a great one:

Fuzzy Worm: tequila, peach schnapps, and orange juice

Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina can also liquor you up for new frozen special cocktails and also their famous Corona Rita!

Final Thoughts

Overall, my husband and I were very impressed with our meals at the Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina in Clinton Township. This is a Mexican restaurant that we can see ourselves dining at again in the near future. The meals were a tremendously great value for the price and considering just how much food we received on our plates. I hope that this Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina review will inspire you to stop in and give it a great big whirl!

My Extreme Pizza Review

This was not our first time at this Grosse Pointe pizza place. We have been here several times before. We live one city over in St. Clair Shores and the little extra drive is worth it to get to this unique Grosse Pointe pizza establishment. I consider this place to be a hidden gem and I am so happy I discovered it a few years back. This Grosse Pointe pizza place has a menu that builds up excitement in me. There are so many excellent choices here and I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them! Extreme Pizza is known to consistently serve up pizzas that do not disappoint!

One drawback

For me, there was only one little drawback that came to mind while typing up this Daddy’s Doughnuts review. That is that there is no seating available inside this donut shop. I know that many donut shops are grab-and-go but this is the type of establishment that I actually wouldn’t mind hanging out in for a while with my family. I wouldn’t mind having them pour me a cup of coffee to go with my donuts. I am only pointing this out so that my readers are aware that you will have to take your donuts to-go.

Daddy's Doughnuts is already counting down the days until National Doughnut Day!

What’s next for me at Daddy’s Doughnuts

I am most certainly going to be stopping in again at this establishment for some more donuts and smiles! I have never in my life had a donut with bacon on it and I will be ordering a maple/bacon donut, for sure, next time I come in! The Key Lime Pie donut also sounds like a winner for me! I am also intrigued by their Strawberry Shortcake donut. This is the place to be if you are bored with your regular glazed donuts. Stop in at Daddy’s Doughnuts if you want to try out some adventurous, new donut flavors!

My Birthday Dinner At Terry’s Terrace REVIEW & Gift-Card GIVEAWAY 4 Winners! (Harrison Township, MI Restaurant)

My 38th birthday on February 23rd may have come and gone but the wonderful memories will remain of my awesome birthday dinner with family at Terry’s Terrace in Harrison Township, Michigan. I have dined at Terry’s Terrace a couple of times in the past and I was so impressed with my experience I had to go back. If you are looking for a seafood dish of excellence then Terry’s Terrace is the restaurant that you will want to dive into! This Terry’s Terrace review will go into detail about my seafood birthday dinner at this establishment. Unfortunately, I can’t have alcohol at this point in time of my life so I am unable to discuss that but it does appear to be that this place has an incredible bar. If you want to hear about their food, though, you are in the right place. Also, keep reading to find out how you can win a $25 gift-card to Terry’s Terrace in the gift-card giveaway! Four winners will be drawn at random.

Let’s get started and break down my birthday dinner.

My Terry’s Terrace Review

The atmosphere

Terry’s Terrace has a great ambiance. The atmosphere at this Harrison Township is a fun one. This restaurant is often very busy and I do suggest making reservations if you do not want to wait around for a table because they do fill up fast. This restaurant is dimly lit and depending on where you sit there can be some background noise. The area around the bar is where most of the noise comes from but there are other areas of the restaurant you can be seated at that are more on the quiet side.

Arcade

For those of you who have quarters in your pocket there is also an arcade at the back of this restaurant. Inside you will find some great video games and a wide variety of pinball machines.

Lobster Lover’s February

Part of the reason why I chose Terry’s Terrace this year was due to their Lobster Lover’s February event that takes place all month. During the month of February Terry’s Terrace has several different lobster offerings to choose from.

Lobster choices

Lobster Bisque
Lobster Tacos
Surf & Turf

I don’t know about you but I sure can’t pass up the opportunity to have a lobster feast. When I looked at the menu at Terry’s Terrace I felt like I hit the jackpot. They have so many incredible and tempting seafood dishes to choose from! It almost seemed like an impossible task to just settle on one because I am sure they are all magnificent. So if you are a seafood lover like me, you are going to swoon over the menu here at Terry’s Terrace.

Start out with an appetizer at Terry’s Terrace

Appetizers were currently half off when we dined there on a Saturday around 4 pm. It is difficult to pass up a good appetizer at a great price so my mom ordered two plates of the crab-stuffed mushrooms. Boy were they ever awesome! The crab-stuffed mushrooms are one of the house specialties at Terry’s Terrace and for good reason… excellent appetizer! The crab-stuffed mushrooms appetizer consists of mushroom caps stuffed with real crab mix, red onions, and finished with Monterey jack cheese and a lemon to squeeze on top.

Load up on some soup and salad

My dinner included a house salad and I got that with a cup of French dressing on the side. Pretty decent salad but what I was really excited to give a whirl was Terry’s Terrace lobster bisque soup. I have a weakness for lobster bisque and whenever I see it on a menu I just have to order it. My only beef with the soup was that I wish there had just been a tab bit more in the bowl. The lobster bisque had the perfect amount of lobster meat on top of it to swirl into the soup and delight my palate. It was also served with a small piece of garlic bread on the side to dip into it. I am going to be dreaming of this soup for days. I would love another helping of this on my next visit. And the great thing about the lobster bisque is that it is a regular menu item and not just for Lobster Lover’s February.

Though I have not tried it yet and can’t speak from experience (yet), Terry’s Terrace has a clam chowder on their menu. They are known for their seafood and I’m quite certain that their clam chowder will not disappoint. I am thinking that on my next visit to Terry’s Terrace I will be trying that one out! The clam chowder is highlighted on their menu as one of their specialties so of course, you know it is going to be fabulous!

My seafood dinner, the star of the show

Because Terry’s Terrace has Lobster Lover’s February taking place this month I just had to go with a lobster dish and their lobster ravioli turned out to be such a fantastic choice. I have ordered lobster ravioli and other restaurants and have sometimes been let down because the lobster has sort of a pungent, strong taste. Terry’s Terrace lobster ravioli was everything but that. The lobster ravioli had a delicate taste and they were served with a lush white creamy champagne sauce. The lobster ravioli also included a blend of red peppers, corn, and shallots.

Another one of the lobster menu items for Lobster Lover’s February was the lobster-stuffed cod and my mother ordered that. The lobster-stuffed cod was one of the lobster menu items that I debated on ordering. I do love eating a big hunk of some meaty cod. I am including a photo of my mom’s meal here so you can see just how good this was! The cod fish was baked to perfection and topped with a great amount of lobster meat. I was a little jelly of her dinner even though I loved mine. Maybe next year for Lobster Lover’s February I will order the dish that she got.

Terry’s Terrace for kids

Terry’s Terrace also has a kids menu available. This is a great place to take your kids on Tuesdays because on Tuesdays guess what? Kids eat FREE! I am going to suggest the fish & chips for your kiddos because Terry’s Terrace has award-winning fish & chips.

Great place to celebrate a birthday

Terry’s Terrace might just be the next place you want to celebrate your

next big moment in life or a birthday party with family and friends. I made a reservation, of course, because there were 15 of us. They had us seated in a separate little area of the restaurant where it was just us and we were isolated from the rest of the restaurant. It was perfect to have a room like this set aside for my large party of dinner guests.

Terry’s Terrace also provided me with a dessert on the house (no picture). It was a brownie served with vanilla ice-cream, and a big dollop of whipped cream.

Be sure to sign up for their VIP Club for some freebies and deals. They sent me a postcard before my birthday to use on my birthday dinner. I believe it was $7 off my birthday dinner (feel free to correct me if I am wrong). Unfortunately, I ended up either misplacing mine card or accidentally throwing it in the recycling bin.

Final thoughts on my Terry’s Terrace experience

My family and I had an excellent meal at this restaurant from start-to-finish! I honestly can not think of a single gripe that I had for my birthday dinner here. I believe that my family also enjoyed their experience here. The menu for Lobster Lover’s February is both impressive and delicious. I am definitely going to be going back to Terry’s Terrace next year for their lobster feast. I hope that this Terry’s Terrace review will inspire you to stop in and give it a whirl!

I actually just found out about this incredible place, Rocket Fizz, a few days ago through my sister. My sister took her kiddos here and shared some photos from her experience. I knew that right after seeing those photos of hers that I needed to come in and scope out this fun and unique place. Rocket Fizz is a soda pop & candy shop, as well a nostalgia store located in Shelby Township, MI. These are actually a chain of stores that are located throughout the United States. Spectacular surprises await you around every corner and I am sharing my first-time experience with you in this Rocket Fizz review. From floor-to-ceiling there are sweet confections and oddities everywhere your eyes look. It is like sensory overload in here and I mean that in the greatest way for the candy consumer.

And just a heads up! This is a very pic-heavy post! I feel as though the images here really speak for themselves. I am really and truly hoping that my Rocket Fizz review will inspire you to visit this candy shop!

My Rocket Fizz Review

Just what is Rocket Fizz?

Rocket Fizz just might be the place to head over to when you have a major hankering for sweets and you need to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours. This is the place to visit if you need to stock up on “Cheat Day” sweets and treats.

If you have ever been curious about what mustard-flavored or puke flavored pop tasted like then Rocket Fizz has you covered with their completely and totally INSANE flavors of pop for the thrillseeker!

Rocket Fizz is a store that has great pride in offering unique food and drink items to the public. They are a brand that strives for creativity and innovation. This store is the furthest thing from being boring. Rocket Fizz is the type of store that definitely evokes a lot of happiness, a ton of smiles, and plenty of hardy laughs. The mission of the Rocket Fizz chain of stores is that they want to offer something for everyone, for people of all ages and backgrounds. After my first visit here I can truthfully say that Rocket Fizz does succeed in doing that quite well! We had a blast here and we are all excited to come back soon for another visit.

Just living for those Cheat Day thrills!

I ended up taking home a big bag of candy that was chock full of several (and I do mean several) different flavors of taffy. We opted for the larger size bag that you could fill up with as much candy as you could stuff in there. It was $9 for the large bag and I believe it was $7 for the all-you-could-fill smaller bulk candy bag. There were so many different unique flavors of soda-pop at Rocket Fizz and I need to go back when I have a bigger chunk of money to spend here. I also am not a pop-drinker AT ALL but the unique flavors here are worthy of a try. My daughter ended up getting a black licorice pop and boy was it ever tasty! You can choose 4 flavors of soda-pop and build your own 4-pack at Rocket Fizz for $8.00. That is a great deal at $2 a pop! Otherwise, the soda pops sell for $2.29 a piece. The next time I visit this place I am going to get adventurous and try out the weird flavors of soda pop. I am thinking that it would be fun to purchase a couple of different 4-packs and do a video review with my 9-year-old daughter, Chloe Pearl! She is my little blogger sidekick and she has an adventurous palate when it comes to food and drink. Just like her momma, she will try pretty much anything once!

Modern Cone REVIEW – Our First Visit To This Modern-Day Ice-Cream Shop In St. Clair Shores

Modern Cone is a fairly new ice-cream shop to hit the city of St. Clair Shores, MI. This ice cream shop is formerly known as Ashby’s Ice Cream shop. I am so excited about the change that has come to this location. This past weekend we were actually looking for a new frozen-yogurt or ice cream shop to visit and we stumbled upon Modern Cone on Yelp. The photos that I saw on my Yelp app totally and completely sucked me in. So for Tried It Out Tuesday this week I am sharing my Modern Cone review with you. If you are in the Detroit area (or St. Clair Shores would be even better) you need to check out Modern Cone. Their extensive menu is super duper exciting for the ice cream enthusiast. You will find yourself coming back for more and more after your first visit! I am always looking for new and interesting foods to try out and Modern Cone was the most perfect content to share with my readers.

My Modern Cone Ice Cream Review

First Impressions

My first impression of this ice cream shop was the super duper friendly staff! There were two people working when I came in and they were both very friendly and both were helpful. It is always reassuring to go into a new establishment and be welcomed by some joyful staff members.

Modern Cone is a decently-sized little ice cream shop. There are several ice cream flavors to choose from, an exciting menu board, and also an adequate amount of seating for those who wish to enjoy their ice cream on the spot. Check out the menu board below.

Create Your Own Stacker

Modern Cone offers up one of these lovely items known as a Stacker. You can order a Stacker off the menu board or create your very own!

  1. The bottom of the Stacker gets 2 toppings & sauce
  2. Ice cream layer
  3. 2 toppings & sauce
  4. More ice cream!
  5. For the topping of your Stacker, you choose two toppings and a sauce

Easy peasy and endless possibilities! I look forward to trying more Stackers off their menu and then venturing into creating my own.

Regular size Stackers sell for $6.00 and the large size sells for $8.00. To me, this is a very reasonable price for a sundae that is not only delicious but memorable too!

Our Two Ice Cream Stackers and a Modern Cone

I ended up splurging on the Cereal Killer sundae, my hubby got a I Want S’more (s’mores flavor), and my daughter Chloe got a double-scoop ice cream cone with rainbow sherbet and cotton candy. It was really hard to narrow down my choice to just one because the Stackers that Modern Cone offers all sound enticing to me. I consider myself an ice cream enthusiast so I can’t wait to return to Modern Cone and give more of these creative icec ream concoctions a whirl!

Cereal Killer

I have never in my life had an ice cream sundae with cereal on it but now seems like a good time to start! My Cereal Killer Stacker included strawberry ice cream with a variety of different breakfast cereals (Fruity Pebbles, Trix, and Lucky Charms) and it was then topped with a white chocolate sauce. Talk about a unique ice cream experience! Yeah yeah yeah I know this sounds like diabetes that is ready to happen in a cup BUT I do not treat myself to confections like this often so all is good! I was long overdue for a Cheat Day treat and this Cereal Killer Stacker satisified my sweet tooth!

They also have “NACHOS”!

I was really intrigued by the section of the menu where it said NACHOS! This ice cream shop puts a delicious spin on nachos and they came up with dessert nachos. Yep… you heard that right! With the nachos, you get two flavors of ice cream, your choice of 3 different toppings, and two dessert sauces.

Other Items Available On The Menu

There is a great variety of items available on the menu here. Indulge in an Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich or Cookie Ala Mode! Few things in life beat the winning combination of a warm cookie paired with some scrumptious ice cream so I bet you a million bucks that I will be trying out both of these frozen treats!

Traditional Treats

If you don’t want to try out something wild and crazy then Modern Cone has you covered with more traditional fare like milkshakes, sundaes, cones, Italian Ice, slushies, and even a pup cup perfect for your pooch!

What is next for me at Modern Cone

I already have my mind made up (I think!) for my next visit to Modern Cone. I need that Fruity Explosion! The Fruity Explosion comes with vanilla ice cream but I am leaning towards swapping that out for some Blue Moon or cotton-candy!

Final Thoughts

I am sharing this Modern Cone review today because I want to inspire you all to get off your butt and head on over here! This was my first ever visit here and I was absolutely blown away by the menu choices.

Ice cream shops like this are a dream come true for me because I am not into ordinary… give me extraordinary!

This place is anything but boring. When you go to an ice cream shop like this you are in for a real treat. The menu is so creative and it really has inspired me to want to go back for more! I want to give it all a big whirl! Lucky for us, we actually live within walking distance to Modern Cone. I am feeling like I hit the jackpot by discovering this unique and modern place!

Let’s kick things off here by just admitting that I feel so very blessed to live in close proximity to Nino Salvaggio in St. Clair Shores. I have been visiting Nino Salvaggio’s for as long as I can remember. My mom used to go shopping here all the time and my mind was always blown by the beautiful, colorful fruit and vegetable displays there. It is sort of like a work of art… an installation of the prettiest produce your eyes have seen. Nino Salvaggio takes pride in the products that they sell, and it shows! This store is absolutely stunning and you can see that they pay attention to detail.

Today I will also be sharing a recipe for an exotic fruit smoothie bowl that I created with passion fruit and guava. Passion fruit is one of my favorite fruits and I love the sweet and sour taste of it. Guava is another favorite exotic fruit of mine and I don’t get a chance to enjoy it very often. I could not resist buying one from Nino Salvaggio.

I visited Nino Salvaggio this past weekend to pick up some exotic fruits. I knew ahead of time that I wanted to pick up a couple passion fruits (one of my all-time favorite fruits). The dilemma was that I really was not quite sure what I wanted to combine it with for my smoothie bowl. Then I saw the guava and I knew that would pair well with the passion fruit so I took home one of those.

Exotic fruits that intrigued me at Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace

The exotic fruits section at Nino Salvaggio is the most interesting place to shop, for me anyway! This is the spot in the store where you can get brave and muster up the strength to try something new!

Passion Fruit

So this is the fruit that I was really going after with my trip to Nino Salvaggio. Passion fruit just might be one of my all-time favorite fruits to chow down on. With the passion fruit, you get the wonderful combination of sweet & sour. If you don’t like the texture of tapioca you probably won’t like this. It does, to me, have a tapioca texture. It is slimy and seedy but the taste blows my mind. Using this as the star of my smoothie bowl was a wise choice!

Passion fruit is a nutrient-dense fruit that has a great amount of Vitamin C in it and it is great for the immune system. The passion fruit also has some fiber, Vitamin A, potassium, and a bit of iron. It is a small fruit and contains around 17 calories per serving. You can learn all about the health benefits of the passion fruit HERE.

Guava

Guava is the second fruit that I ended up going with for my smoothie bowl. These guavas are oh so yummy but they are pricey! I only took home one small guava. One turned out to be just enough for the flavor that I was going after.

As far as nutrition goes with the guava fruit, you are going to find some antioxidants, Vitamin C, fiber, and beta carotene in the fruit. There are 8 wonderful health benefits of the guava fruit and you can feed your brain with knowledge over here.

Rambutan

Now here is an interesting piece of fruit! This is a rambutan and it sort of reminds me of lychee fruit. I was really tempted to get more of these but the steep price deterred me and I only purchased one! Me and my daughter, Chloe, split the rambutan in half and we each tried a small piece. It definitely does have a taste reminiscent of lychee. The flesh was soft and also reminded me of grapes. I would give this a whirl again. We really enjoyed the experience of trying this unique fruit.

Quince

Quince is a new-to-me fruit too. Never ever had one in my life had quince! These tart fruits are grown in Chile and you can eat them raw, but it is advised to cook these if you want the best flavor to come through.

Ya Ya Pear

The ya ya pear is a pear that originates from China. This white pear’s flavor can best be described as a cross between a rose and a pineapple. The ya ya pear is crisp and sweet, but not overly sweet. Just the right amount of sweetness!
