I try and take decent care of my body, and as my best friend, who happens to be a Dairy Queen® nutritionist, tells me, it IS possible to maintain a balanced diet while including DQ® treats in moderation.
Here’s the problem: Who wants to eat DQ treats in moderation?
It’s the same EVERY time we go into a store; I get an Arctic Rush® slush (140 calories), then longingly stare at my husband as he eats his medium Blizzard® Treat (a few more than 140 calories). It’s not that he’s not in shape, he’s just the typical “stop drinking soda, lose 12 pounds” type of guy who really doesn’t have to do much more than think about working out to actually lose weight.
I, on the other hand, have to watch what I eat. Lucky for me I’m a runner so my personal trainer (me) is always only a couple steps away from a great workout. And I’ve really been working hard lately because the October Blizzard of the Month, Pumpkin Pie, is my all time favorite. Plus, now, with the rollout of probably the best product on the DQ menu, the Mini Blizzard, I won’t have to work quite so hard to earn my Blizzard Treat.
What Blizzard flavor are you willing to go the extra mile for?
