You know who loves a good soft serve frozen cake with an awesome fudge crunch center for their birthday? Pretty much everyone in America. That’s why for this July 4th, you should show up at America’s birthday party with a DQ Cake.
In this land of the free, you’re free to choose from DQ BLIZZARD Cakes, like the S’mores BLIZZARD Cake, or personalize one of our famous soft serve cakes with your own message. Like your favorite line from the Declaration of Independence. You know, something like that.
The other night, while sitting outside eating a Blizzard on a warm night, I started thinking about how the days can start getting longer and warmer but the thing that really kicks off summer for me is a Blizzard.
As you know, I LOVE Blizzards all year round, but there is just something about that first Blizzard of summer. It’s like it’s the official kick off to the season. And with the S’mores Blizzard, as the Blizzard of the Month, it’s safe to say that summer has very much arrived
and I am ready to eat it up – with a red spoon!
I bet you didn’t know that this year, Father’s Day is also National Hot Fudge Day. “Coincidence”
you say? I say: No way. Just think about it: Fudge is the delicious, irresistible center of DQ cakes. Dad is the fudgey, awesome center of your world. I’d say there were never two things more meant to share a day of celebration. So Happy Fudgey Father’s Day, Dad. You can bet there will be cake,
Ladies and gentlemen, I present the Blizzard of the month—which quite possibly may be the Blizzard of the century –The S’mores Blizzard.
That’s right, it’s ooey gooey marshmallows inside rich chunks of chocolate and Honey Maid graham crackers swirled in that creamy, dreamy soft serve. And let me tell ya: it tastes JUST LIKE a S’more. All the roasted, campfire, summer, kumbayah goodness of a S’more, right in your Blizzard cup.
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.
