Summer is in full swing and nothing helps you get through a hot summer day quite like the sweet ice cream treat from Dairy Queen, the Blizzard. Launched in 1985, the Blizzard, with its ice cream base and choice of fillings, quickly became a hit.
We usually went to DQ once a month in the summer when I was growing up, but once these ads for the Blizzard (with voice work by the legendary Casey Kasem) started running in our area, you couldn’t shut me up about it, and I think the frequency of our visit frequency definitely went up.
It has been over a year since I had a Blizzard, but I passed a Dairy Queen last week and now that I know I can get to one, this weekend I am going to run out and get one.
