I love Dairy Queen. I really do! I’ve been enjoying DQ treats for as long as I can remember. When my grandparents used to come into the city from the farm, they always brought along a box of Dilly Bars. Every time we came home to find our grandparents car in the driveway, we said a quick hello and ran downstairs to the freezer to grab a treat. My grandpa has been gone for 17 years now but our special Dilly Bar treat time is always something I’ll remember sharing with him.
Dairy Queen Traditions:
I have a few favourite television shows and special nights dedicated to catching up on them. Once a week, my husband brings me home a mini Blizzard to enjoy while I curl up on the couch to enjoy my TV time. It’s a routine now – I can’t sit down to watch my shows until I have my mini Blizzard (Mint Brownie with extra stuff…in case you were wondering).
I love Dairy Queen so much that I actually ordered a special DQ log to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of Moms & Munchkins. I’ve decided that every year on Moms & Munchkins anniversary, we’ll be enjoying a Dairy Queen cake. A party just isn’t the same without cake, right?
Best Dairy Queen Memory Ever:
I have an awesome Dairy Queen story to share with you. My brother will be humiliated that I’m sharing this story with you but it is too good not to share! When my brother was around 7 years old, we were at Dairy Queen with our mom, a friend of mine and her mom. At that time, there were railings between each of the booths. My brother thought it would be funny to stick his head through the railings but it really wasn’t that funny. What was funny was when he realized that his head was stuck. Yep, there we were in Dairy Queen eating our ice cream while my little brother was crying with his head stuck in the railings. My mom went into panic mode when she realized that he really was stuck. You want to know what she did next? She left us with my friend and her mom in Dairy Queen to race home and grab some margarine. No, I’m not kidding. My mom drove all the way back home to grab some margarine to try to free my brother! She came back with the margarine, smeared my brother’s head with it until he slid free. In case you’re wondering…yes, we did continue to go to that Dairy Queen for treats. Even an embarrassing moment like that couldn’t keep us away from that delicious ice cream!
