Happy 25th anniversary to Dairy Queen’s Blizzard!


This year, Dairy Queen is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its game-changing Blizzard treat.

America’s waistline has never been the same.

Of course, since then, the blended soft-serve and sweet stuff concept has been copied by other establishments: McDonalds’ McFlurry, the Sonic Blast, Tastee Freez’s Freezees, Fosters Freeze’s Twisters and Wendy’s Twisted Frosty, for example.

So what does this mean to you?

Well, this week (April 19 to 25), you can get a second Blizzard for 25 when you buy one at regular price (at participating locations, naturally). There’s no indication that you need a coupon, but there’s one here if you want to be on the safe side.

So, bring a friend or a date and share in the dessert that has its own fan website.

Also, Dairy Queen has sent out a Blizzardmobile on tour, dispensing free mini Blizzards and doing other promotions, but of course, it won’t be coming to the Inland Empire. The closest it will get will be Los Angeles on July 9 and 10.

Dairy Queens can be found throughout the Inland Empire, except in Yucaipa, but they’re getting one soon.
