My favorite dessert from achain restaurant no longer exists: the fried apple pies that McDonald's used to sell.

Does any other chain stll sell fried fruit pies?

      Houlihans, I think they are a chain but I have only been to the two in Indy, has the best Baked Potato Soup that I have ever had. I have had this soup at several chains and this one is far superior IMHO.

        I forgot about Houlihans. The only one I've eaten in as an adult was in St. Louis a few years back. It was great, just like it had been when we discovered it back in 1977. Houlihans was one of the restaurants we stumbled onto while vacationing and always wished they'd come to Cincinnati, but Indy and Columbus were as close as they came. Probably just as well because we always thought the same thing about Ruby Tuesday's after discovering them in Hilton Head in the early 80's. A few years later they came to Cincinnati and now I hate them.

            I had almost forgotten about the Wendys Frostys. Saturday night, on our way home, we stopped and ordered the .99 Frostys. They were a refreshing treat at a cheap price

              Do you remember Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor? That was my favorite place growing up! Both my brother and I would have Birdthday parties there. Sometimes I wish I lived in California just so I could go to the only two Farrell's still open. (Well, not that bad, I just can't leave Wa State for California!)

              Dairy Queen is okay but Red Robin has some pretty cool Ice Cream Desserts to choice from! ;)

              And if you're from up here and know of the Homestead Restaurant in West Seattle, WA (Alki)...They have some REALLY good desserts including the best Mud Pie I've ever had!....Not bad dinners either!

                  Farrell's closed in Indy back in the late 70s. When I moved to the San Gabriel Valley I found Farrell's still in operation in SoCal. Do you remember the ice cream specialty called the "trough" (a double banana split) where you had to stand up and say "I made a pig of myself at Farrell's" if you finished it.

                      Dessert Rosa from Carrabba's.

                      White cake (but with PERSONALITY), with bananas, strawberries, pineapple (and butter cream in between), and whipped cream on top.

                      Oh my. Yummers.

                        Ooops, and a strawberry dipped in DARK chocolate on top.

                        Oh geez. I want one now.

                          The Hardee's nearest to me in Weirton, WV still fries their apple turnovers and thats one reason I drive thru every now and then. KFC has a chocolate/chocolate chip cake that is good also.

                            Thank you so much, Tkitna! I went right to www.hardees.com and found that fried apple pies are indeed listed as a menu item, so I am set to get to my nearest Hardees. The website even has a nutritional breakdown. 290 calories only. Good to know. Can't wait to taste a fried apple pie again, after all these years.

                              Those little Tom Thumb donuts are absolutely to die for. Especially if you can get them warm. I'm salivating now at the thought of those itty bitty treats.

                              Another yummy treat around the fall season are the Pumpkin shakes at Culvers. MMM, MMM, GOOD!

                                I was looking through some of my old toys to find stuff for my kids and I found my pin and ribbon that I received when I "made a pig of myself" by eating the trough. It was one of the prouder moments of my youth. My deed was completed at the location in Massapequa NY...long, long gone.

                                  We had a grandkid birthday party at a Farrell's somewhere near the Miramar N A S (before they turned it over to the Marines) I guess that was about 1998 or '99. While there a couple of folks ordered the Trough and it was delivered just like a scene in BILL & TED'S EX. ADVENTURE. Siren wailing and 3 servers screaming "EAT THE PIG".
                                  We ordered the large sundae's with our lunch and had a good time watching the 'wholesale eaters' turn green after awhile.

                                      Steak and Shake has a couple of new treats that are pretty good. One is they will add a shot of hot fudge to your milkshake. The other is they now do side by side shakes which is two flavors in one glass. I had a chocolate/strawberry one that was pretty good.

                                        Boston Market's Creamed Spinach, I could eat it until I was sick. Love the fact that it can be purchased in grocery stores.

                                            Stuffed jalapeno peppers at Jack In The Box. Hot peppers, melted cheese, and breading all deep-fried. What’s not to love?

                                                I was about to ask how someone could have room for desert at a Pappadeaux restaurant....

                                                ...but, then realized that my answer had to be the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory.

                                                Question withdrawn....your witness.

                                                  That's cool.

                                                  Not like batboy for the Tigers or the Orioles cool, but cool.

                                                  Can you feel the excitement over the Tejada signing? Have you re-upped your season tickets yet?

                                                        Hey i95, isn't it great?!?! I grew up in Mass. loving the Red Sox, and the day has finally come, unbelievable!!
                                                        So I'm not considered OT, I'll vote for the German Chocolate Blizzard at DQ (id it's not on the menu, ask, has pecans and coconut in it).
