Summer vacation is over and most kids are experiencing the “first week back to school blues.” After a long summer of running around and playing outside, one of the hardest things for kids to do is go back to sitting at a desk all day. When I was little, my parents pretty much had to drag me out of bed to get me up for school.
So, parents, why not ease the pain of the first week back to school by treating your little ones to a Mini Blizzard treat? If those tasty little treats had been around when I was little it would have really helped me out. But instead, all I got was a pat on the back. Talk about lame.

Hey fans! It’s Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of summer. What do you have planned? A picnic? A cook out? A pool party? A camping trip?
Well, there’s something that will go perfectly with whatever you’re doing. Why not celebrate Labor Day with your favorite Blizzard Cake? You’ll be a hero to all your guests when you bring out one of these bad boys. I can picture it now… everyone is jumping up and down with joy, screaming your name with excitement as if you’re a member of that hot boy band and you’re walking out on stage. It’ll be just like that. OK, maybe not quite like that, but you know what I mean. What better way to bring the summer to a close than with a delicious Blizzard Cake?

Happy 25th Anniversary to the Blizzard® Treat– and to Us!
My husband and I were married 25 years ago, and I think it’s cool that we celebrate our 25th the same year the Blizzard Treat does. We had a picture perfect day. Hollywood couldn’t have done it better – it was the end of August, beautiful blue skies, not too hot, and there was a full moon that night. Surrounded by our combined family and dear friends, we had the best time!
Here we are 25 years later, and I really wouldn’t change a thing. O.K. I would still like to be taller, and I sure wish my metabolism would speed up again… but as far as the marriage goes? Nope. No changes there. Not always perfect, sometimes pretty tough, and worth every minute.
We have managed to celebrate nearly every day this past week with some kind of fun gathering or event starting with a dinner at a fancy restaurant with our kids and my mom. And it looks like our celebrations are going to extend into this weekend as well!
Last year we celebrated my Aunt and Uncle’s 50th wedding anniversary – again a delightful celebration and they were surrounded with family and dear friends. I cannot wait to see what the next 25 years will bring for the two of us.
I know there were a ton of other weddings in 1985 – and folks are celebrating 25 years of all kinds of anniversaries. What are your favorite anniversary memories? How are you celebrating this year?

Hey fans, I’ve got a secret to tell you. Are you ready? You’re not supposed to know this until tomorrow, but I have some insider information about September’s Blizzard of the Month! Just consider this one of the perks of being part of the sweetest club on earth.
OK, you’re probably ready for me to tell you already, huh? Well, here goes: the Blizzard of the Month for September is Brownie Batter in the US and Pecan Pie in Canada!
The only bad news, along with this totally awesome good news, is that you won’t be able to get it until tomorrow. So get some good sleep tonight and be well-rested to get this delicious new treat in the morning. You know I’ll be waiting outside my local DQ to get one!

I was recently at a corporate DQ® meeting where restaurant operators were discussing the pilot test for the Mini Blizzard® Treat, which occurred prior to the system-wide August rollout. One operator has a DQ restaurant near a large college campus. Now, when I think college, I picture a group of guys buying double cheeseburgers and large Blizzard Treats. How would the Mini Blizzard Treat satisfy this group?
Well, it seems that students around this particular DQ restaurant purchase a group of Mini Blizzard Treats in a variety of flavors. It’s almost like when a fine-dining restaurant offers a flight of wines. It enables the patron to try different types of wine, almost as a “sampling.”
That is what these college students are doing. They can try several different Blizzard flavors with their order, instead of just getting one flavor in a larger size.
I think this sounds like an excellent idea. What do you think?
It is with great pleasure that we announce the winners of our DQ®Operation Happy Birthday contest. We asked you to submit a creative video of yourself wishing our signature Blizzard® Treat a “Happy Birthday,” and boy, did you deliver! It was exciting to receive so many great entries to review. You made it quite hard to choose the top three! But remember, everyone who entered is a winner and will receive a $25.00 gift card just for participating!
So, without further ado, the three top videos are:
First Place – $250.00 Dairy Queen® Gift Card
Matthew Eckert, Pennsylvania
Second Place – $150.00 Dairy Queen Gift Card
Quinn Prunty, Maryland
Third Place – $50.00 Dairy Queen Gift Card
Casey McClarnon, Minnesota
