Ruby’s Diner Introduces New Indulgent Swingtime Freeze Trio!


School is back in session and Ruby’s Diner is offering a sweet pick-me-up just in time for the busy fall season. The Swingtime Freeze Trio introduces two new caffeinated freeze flavors, Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Mint, and one non-caffeinated flavor, Strawberry, to the menu for just $3.99 each. Made with a touch of cold brew coffee, the Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Mint freezes offer an early morning or afternoon boost, and the non-caffeinated Strawberry is made with special ice crystals giving it a cool, refreshing finish.

I had the opportunity to try the Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Mint and it is delicious! I also love that it is caffeinated! Don’t miss them!



Available August 28-October 29, 2017
