Sweet Deals from Dairy Queen

I just love watching this kid have such a great time. The 1st trip to Dairy Queen was such a fun time! I hope she has great memories of Dairy Queen as I do.

All mine
Eva’s 1st Dairy Queen ice cream cone.

I’ve been a fan of Dairy Queen ever since I was in Little League and after every game, win or lose the team would go for ice cream cones or DQ specialty items like Dilly Bars. I imagine that this would get expensive for our coaches but they were great and continued to take us after every game. My absolute favorite thing at Dairy Queen is Crunch Coat. Crunch Coat is basically an awesome, crunchy, nutty, rainbow-sprinkled ice cream topping. It is the best topping to a cone ever. Sort of a peanut brittle and jimmies, shots, sprinkles (depending upon region of the US) combination that I would always get on my cone. Most kids went for the cherry dip or chocolate dip cone. Not me, it was twist with Crunch Coat all the way!

I want the big one!

Dairy Queen has just announced their first-ever permanent value-menu. It is called DQ® Sweet Deals.

What is so sweet about this deal. Well, you can mix and match from nine menu items. You can choose two items for $3, three for $4 or four for $5. The options work out to over 20,000 incredible taste combinations.

Here are the nine tasty items: Dairy Queen® cheeseburger, classic all-beef hot dog, new chicken wrap, yummy French fries, crispy onion rings, fresh salad, beverage and an irresistible sundae or cone made with the signature DQ soft serve with the curl on top.

This stuff is GREAT!

How did I learn about this? I saw it on the Dairy Queen Blog. Yes, that delicious DQ ice cream has a blog. I learned about it too late because all the gift cards have been given out. Sheesh, late to the tasty table.

However, the Dairy Queen Blog is still offering a great prize for the best blog post. Well once they see Eva enjoying her 1st Dairy Queen dipped cone then they need to pick this post. Because this kids really loves her Dairy Queen.

Today Allison had a ZETA event so she was gone most of the day. I spent the day with Eva. After Eva woke up from her nap at noon we went over to Dairy Queen for a Daddy and Daughter Date Day. We had a great meal together. Eva had chicken tenders and applesauce and shared some of my fries. The real fun was after our meal, we had dessert. Eva had her 1st Dairy Queen ice cream cone. She loved it! I have a great Dairy Queen post that will be going up soon that includes photos and a fun video. I did take one with my camera phone.

Luckily it was a nice day weatherwise. After our lunch we went to World War I Memorial Park. There are many domestic animals there at the park including two cute little pot bellied pigs. We brought some carrots to give to the animals. Don’t worry I did all the giving of the food to the animals. Eva herself crunched on a carrot the whole time. The animals were following us around because of her carrot. There were goats, deer, llamas, ponies and a little donkey.

After the animals we played in one of the little playground areas. Eva enjoyed the slide. She’d slide down and I’d swoop her up into the air and we’d laugh and I’d put her up again. I cherish these little days where we go do something fun together, or even those days when we stay in and color.
