5 Epic Desserts You Can Enjoy in Myrtle Beach

Rule No. 1 about dessert in Myrtle Beach: ALWAYS talk about dessert in Myrtle Beach.

You have some legendary choices when you visit. Somehow, even the simple scoop of ice cream tastes a little sweeter on the Grand Strand. (Isn’t that odd? There aren’t any more calories when you indulge on vacation. It’s a proven fact.)

Here are five terrific ways to cap a terrific day in Myrtle Beach. The sweetest ways, anyway.

5 Awesome Desserts in Myrtle Beach

Go big or go back to your resort (and have an apple.)

1. Banana Split at Kirk's 1890 Ice Cream Parlor

Get yourself a classic at a classic ice cream parlor. Kirk’s doesn’t skimp, so make sure you get plenty of spoons so everyone in your party can have a taste. Plus, you can ask for samples of other treats too before you land on one. Hold on tightly to your banana split — if you drop it, it becomes a banana splat.

2. Don't Worry, Beach Happy at Crazy Mason

It’s the “Myrtle Beachiest,” to commemorate Crazy Mason’s first year on the Grand Strand. Check out what comes in this incredible milkshake:

  • Vanilla buttercream icing rolled in crushed graham cracker on the rim of mason jar
  • Topped with white chocolate candy starfish
  • A wave of cotton candy
  • Custom surfboard sugar cookie
  • Whipped cream and blue sugar finish

Pro tip: If you eat yours on the balcony of your resort, you’ll be … ledge ‘n dairy.

  • Apple pie
  • Birthday cake
  • Cherry cheesecake
  • Chocolate chip
  • Coconut
  • Dirt
  • Lemon blueberry
  • Maple bacon
  • Raspberry lemonade
  • S’mores
  • Samoa
  • Strawberry shortcake

That’s just a small sample. They’re all pretty … a-glaze-ing

4. Mackinac Island Fudge, Kilwin's

The creamy goodness of original Don and Katy Kilwin recipes continues to shine. Don began hand-crafting fudge in 1948, developing flavors that became nationwide favorites. Here’s a sample of flavors:

  • Chocolate peanut butter
  • Maple walnut
  • Mud
  • Sea salt caramel
  • Toasted coconut chocolate chunk
  • Turtle

You can skip your diet when you come here. Just tell them you’re a conscientious desserter.

5. Red Velvet Cupcake at Coccadott's Cake Shop

It’s gorgeous, it’s rich, it’s in high demand — as any good star should be. (It’s also topped with delicious cream cheese.) Their custom cakes look amazing and taste incredible, too. This all proves that some people simply dream — others bake it happen.
