Like any good Mississippi State Alumni, I had a favorite hangout when I was at State. It just so happened that I also worked there for a while. A good bit of my free time was spent at a local coffee shop called Strange Brew, where you will find Mississippi roasted and locally brewed coffee. Their menu includes a few coffee shop standbys along with a ton of delicious, original creations from espresso drinks to frozen treats. The crew there is always thinking up new recipes, so they’re sure to have something you haven’t tried (or heard of) before. If you’re headed through Starkville, stop by The Brew and try the Albino Squirrel or the Captain Crunch Latte if you’re in need of a pick-me-up. They’ve also got the best Hot Chocolate around, topped off with homemade whipped cream.
In anticipation of the 2013 Egg Bowl, I’ve teamed up with Mr. & Mrs. Brew from Strange Brew for a special giveaway. We’re giving away an Egg Bowl Tailgating Package, which includes two Joe to Go’s (8-10 cups of coffee each) and a platter of fresh baked Scones. Choose from their Strange Brew Blend, Hazelnut Cream, Jamaican Me Crazy, The Great Pumpkin Spice, Southern Pecan, their famous Blueberry Cobbler, and more. Then, mix & match your scones, choosing from White Chocolate Raspberry, Blueberry, Chocolate Chip, and Brown Sugar Cinnamon. (Personally, I’m partial to their Blueberry Cobbler Coffee and a warm Brown Sugar Cinnamon Scone.) Enter below for a chance to win: a Rafflecopter giveaway Entries are accepted until November 26, and the winner will be announced on November 27! Need to place an order for your tailgate or event?
