Restaurant Roundup: Healthy cupcakes, pork rinds, more Twin Bing ice cream magic

July 11, 2019

Oh My Cupcakes has introduced “low-sugar, low-carb, gluten-friendly, high-flavor” cupcakes. To start, there are three flavors: Lighter Lemon Blueberry, Skinny Chocolate and Skinny Chocolate Mocha. They’re available at both bakeries and can be ordered online.

B&G Milkyway and Stensland Family Farms have found a fanatical response to Twin Bing ice cream, and now Sub Zero Desserts is featuring the flavor in its rolled ice cream. You can find them at the shipping container shop at 41st Street and Fifth Avenue this month.

If you’re a fan of fried pork skins, you don’t have to travel to the Deep South to find them. Swamp Daddy’s Cajun Kitchen has added them to the menu. Get an order for $6.99. They’re also part of a secret menu item: fried pork skin nachos. But there might be times when those aren’t available, so don’t be heart-broken.

Stensland Family Farms is encouraging patriotism this month. On Tuesdays through July 23, children 12 and younger who recite the Pledge of Allegiance from memory at either the East or West 41st Street stores will receive a free mini dip ice cream cone or dish. Stop in between 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. This is a national campaign that started seven years ago among ice cream shops to instill patriotism in children.

Remedy Brewing Co.’s creation last year in honor of the Minnesota Vikings — Skolberry — has been named one of the top NFL-themed beers by ESPN. Skolberry returns in early September. The wheat beer is made with fresh blueberry puree.

First, it was hamburgers at IHOP. Now, it’s tacos at Burger King. The restaurant is selling hard-shell tacos for $1. They were tested on the menu in California and found enough love for a national roll-out.

The traveling food truck On the Hook Fish and Chips will be back in Sioux Falls on Friday. From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., it will be in the parking lot at Sun N Fun Specialty Sports at 1605 W. 41st St. The menu is simple: three pieces of battered and deep-fried wild Alaskan cod with fries.

Myers’ Deli & More has a new special on the third Thursday of the month through September at its location in the CNA Surety building downtown on Reid Street. Get a box lunch for $3 that includes a special from the grill, salad, chips and a drink. The deal is good from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
