So, granted, graduating is a big deal. But, you know what else is a big deal? Our soft serve frozen cakes. Some say they’ve gotten many a senior over the last hump. OK, nobody actually said that but it seems reasonable.
Choose from a Blizzard® Cake (yes Blizzard cakes!) or our famous soft serve with the awesome fudge crunch center. Or, you can easily design your graduate a personalized cake with your own message like, “Go Get a Job Now and Move Out of Your Parents Basement” or maybe something sweeter? I’ll leave that up to you.
OK – not totally sure what that means other than every time I look outside and see the sun peeking through the clouds and smell a freshly grilled burger or a Strawberry Cheesequake®Blizzard® Treat I think of summer. The kind of lazy summer days where you hang out at the park, toss a ball around, walk down to the DQ® store and grab a Blizzard® Treat. Man, I love those lazy days full of good times. What’s your favorite summer tradition?
Is that a word? No? I think it should be, like “let’s smoothify this day” or “stop, drop and smoothify”. It’s that feeling when you’re stressed and thirsty and hungry and you need something tasty to get you through the day. That’s when a hand blended smoothie made with real fruit steps in and saves the day (yes, “smoothifies” the day). Ever since Orange Julius® drinks moved in to DQ® stores I’ve become addicted to the Strawberry Banana Smoothie and I’ve never looked back. It’s pretty cool having a world famous smoothie shop neatly tucked into a DQ location.
I think I’ll talk to the people at Wikipedia about this Smoothify situation. In the meantime take a buck off your next smoothie, get yourself smoothified on me!
The Blizzard® of the Month: Yummy Wrapped Inside Amazing Wrapped Inside Choco Goodness. Also known as the Choco Peanut Butter Brownie Blizzard Treat. I gotta say, this one’s hard to beat. Just when you’re like, “Hey that’s Peanut Butter” you get hit with “YES, that’s a chewy brownie situation!” then whammo comes the choco chunks. That’s what I call the triple threat soft serve style. It’s also what I call the Blizzard of the Month for May because I really, really like May.

Doesn’t matter. Tomorrow is International Workers Day. I don’t actually know what that means, but I know that since I’m a “worker” I will be treating myself to something extra special. After all, you know that DQ® locations will be announcing a new Blizzard® Treat of the month tomorrow, and according to my secret sources, it’s a new flavor called the Choco Peanut Butter Brownie Blizzard Treat.
I’ll pause so you can take that in…
You good? Okay, so it’s chewy brownie pieces, choco chunks and smooth peanut butter all brought together into happily ever after by creamy vanilla soft serve. Yes. Happy International Worker’s Day to me! And you, but mostly me because Blizz Prez is a very hard job. I mean, constantly trying new, delicious Blizzard Treat flavors every time they come out is tough work. You have no idea. I’m serious. Anyway, how many hours until it’s tomorrow? I’m ready to celebrate.

America has favorites. One is baseball and the other is Dairy Queen® Treats. Perhaps it’s because DQ® stores have long been the official unofficial place for post game gatherings. I love walking into my DQ store this time of year and finding a baseball team huddled around a table, still in their grass-stained uniforms, rehashing the latest win or loss over Blizzard® Treats, Dip Cones, sundaes and Chicken Strip Baskets. Sure, keeping up with the professional teams is fun, but I much prefer the thrill of seeing local legends in the making and hearing about the 12-year-old with the homerun streak and the new softball pitcher with the killer windmill. Some people love spring for the flowers, but I love it for the baseball…and the Blizzard Treats, always the Blizzard Treats.
To me, Tuesdays can be a real blah day of the week. It’s not Monday, but it’s still pretty far from the weekend. Don’t worry, I have the cure (please, hold your applause until the end). To overcome the blahness, I make Tuesday my $5 Buck Lunch day with a special twist. So instead of getting my $5 Buck Lunch with a sundae on the side as usual, I upgrade to a small Blizzard® Treat for just $1 extra. And now Tuesday is my favorite day of the week…next to Friday, and Saturday, and Sunday—okay, not counting the weekend, Tuesday is definitely my favorite day. (You can applaud now.)

Never. Now that spring is in swing and the day of pranks is past, let us take a moment to pause, reflect, recharge, and then totally freak out about my newest favorite thing: The Choco Covered Pretzel with Peanut Butter Blizzard® Treat. The choco covered pretzel pieces, peanut butter and choco chunks blend together in creamy vanilla soft serve to create what I like to call the perfect storm of flavors. It’s sweet, salty, creamy, high-five worthy, upside down goodness. Think of it as delicious couples therapy for your sweet tooth and your salt tooth, which will never fight again.

Spring is here! Well, it’s more here in certain places than others, but still, people are emerging from their winter dens, and I thought it’d be the perfect time to sharpen our skills. After all, some of our DQ®stores are seasonal, and we’re gonna need to be on our toes when they open their doors. I’ve assembled not one, not two, but FOUR Blizzard® Treats for you to guess this month.
