Twenty-five Years of Blizzards

We have a winner for this post. Maria you are the winner. Please email me your address so I can send you your prize.
Twenty-five years of blizzards.



And I don't mean a snowstorm, although here in Iowa

I am sure we have had at least one blizzard a year for the last twenty-five years.


I mean the Dairy Queen Blizzard, which is celebrating it's 25th birthday.



Today my seamstresses are here proofing patterns - a tedious job that we really dislike.
It was decided that a Mini Blizzard would really make the task seem less tedious.
Today Dairy Queen will donate $1.00 to the Childrens' Miracle Network for every Blizzard sold- another reason to have a blizzard.


My favorite Blizzard flavor is Pecan Cluster.
Sandy and Lori opted for Butterfinger.
What is your favorite flavor?


Isn't this just adorable.
And half the calories - you gotta love it.



Tell me your favorite flavor in a comment.
All comments with a favorite flavor will be put in a drawing.
The winner will win an Awesome Charm Pack™ and an Acorn Alley pattern.





I grew up in Jackson Minnesota.
Coming into town from the south there was a tiny little Dairy Queen.
Sadly I could not find a picture of the old Jackson Dairy Queen
but it looked kind of like this.
My sister Brenda could never figure out
how the people got into the Dairy Queen…
Did they really crawl through the tiny little order window?
She was sure they did for there was no door - at least not one that she could see.




It was such a treat to stop at the Dairy Queen.
At that time you could buy a cone for a nickel.





One of my favorite treats as a child
was the Buster Bar - oooh I loved that chocolate fudge middle.
Sometimes I would get brain freeze.





Once a year our school bus would stop
at the Dairy Queen on our way out of town.
I am sure that would not be permitted these days.
Sure glad I grew up in the day were a school bus stopping
at a Dairy Queen was okay.



Now go treat yourself to a Mini Blizzard - Childrens' Miracle Network will appreciate it.

From my heart,

Sandy

  3. Love the Oreo blizzards...I had no idea blizzards were 25 years old. I have fond memories of riding in the back of my parents truck to get to the closest Dairy Queen which was about 5 miles away...I always got chocolate dipped cones...and my Dad always got Dilly Bars!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Blizzards were very popular around here when my kids were younger and they opened a brand new Dairy Queen in a shopping center near us. I always opted for the Butterfinger one!

    Stopping at the Dairy Queen on a bus, now there's a great childhood remembrance! How lucky you did not have to get in through the order window :)

  5. We don't have Dairy Queen's around here anymore. But recently we were in Witchita and of course we had to visit a Dairy Queen. Hubby got the Golden Oreo Blizzard and I got the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Blizzard. Boy was that yummy! Wish I can go back and get another one!

  6. I don't have a favorite, I really like to try the seasonal offerings. My four year old LOVES the M&M's blizzard. She thinks it's so magical that she can have ice cream AND M&M's at once (forbidden at home!)

    here in MT, the DQ's close for the season around November, open for Valentines Day and if the weather is good it stays open, if it's still cold it will close again until Easter

  7. Reeses is my favorite!! I can't believe they are 25 years old! We had Dairy Queen a lot when I was a kid. Our family loved the chocolate dipped ice cream cones...yum yum!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. My fav is an oreo blizzard but my son is allergic to peanuts so we never go there...so the last one I had was a Quilt MN shop hop a few years ago!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I had the Strawberry Cheesequake blizzard tonight. I took my hubby and his mom for blizzards to celebrate Miracle treat day. Love supporting CMN!

    ReplyDelete
  10. As a little girl I use to get "Dilly Bars" with my family at the DQ. I haven't had a blizzard in years, until 2 nights ago. My sis and I got their mini Blizzards - the perfect size. I wanted my favorite (Resee's Peanut Butter Cup) but they were out! Can you believe that!?! So my next choice was Heath. Yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  11. My favorite flavor is a new one. Chocolate Extreme. Congrats Dairy Queen. Thank you for the wonderful give-away. Take care and God bless, Cory

    ReplyDelete
  12. There is no DQ near us! But I think I would like a butterfinger one. =)

    ReplyDelete
  13. It's hard to pick a favorite. I like the chocolate covered strawberry and the M&M blizzards. They are all great!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ohhh you really should try the snickers with extra stuff of heath. it's soo yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am just a straight oreo blizzard lover! Funny that you talk about this on your blog. I had a patient from England yesterday that mentioned he was going to Wendy's or Dairy Queen after his appt. because they don't have that in England. We are fortunate here ;)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Would you believe I've never had a Blizzard? Must rectify that. However, my choice in ice cream is always vanilla...with chocolate sauce if I throw caution to the wind.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I haven't had a Blizzard in ages - thanks for putting that thought in my head! I love the fresh tastes of a Hawaiian blizzard, although the Chocolate Extreme often calls out to me. Thanks for sharing your memories and thinking up a "cool" give-away.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My favorite is the Hawaiian Blizzard!
    My kids roll their eyes when I mention
    DQ! Thank you for the chance to win.

  23. My favorite flavor is Oreo! My mom loves Buster Bars. Every year before the Dairy Queen closes--about November in small town Wyoming--the owner brings my mom over about a dozen Buster Bars to put in her freezer to last her until the spring when it reopens!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Pecan Cluster. I grew up in Marshall, not so far from Jackson, and we had a DQ that looked much like the picture you included. Our big decision was what kind of Dilly Bar we were going to get..chocolate, butterscotch, or strawberry.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Any of the chocolate flavors!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love anything with chocolate. Sometimes I order the banana cream pie blizzard made with chocolate ice cream. Love Blizzards.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Okay, order me up a Mini Blizzard - make mine Cookie Dough - my ALL-TIME favorite.

    I think I might just have to drive into town to our little local DQ and order one for hubby too.

    I think EVERYONE in the US knows what one means when they say "DQ". LOL

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh gosh, I can't get past Georgia Mud Fudge Blizzard on the menu-so, so good! Thanks for a chance to win!! What a super pattern. Love it!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. My favorite would be Oreo. Great Giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oreos were my favorite 'store bought' cookie and my favorite Blizzard. Can you believe there are no Dairy Queens where I live now? Growing up, I loved the Dilly Bars. Do they still make them? Kathie L in Allentown

    ReplyDelete
  31. My favorite Blizzard flavor is Oreo. Thanks for the fun giveaway! Can't wait to see your new stuff. Enjoy the day!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm embarrassed...we had Tastee Freeze where I grew up and I've rarely gone to DQ as an adult so have never had a Blizzard. I've had a few Buster Bars though which are quite tasty. I think a butterfinger mini sounds like it would hit the spot today!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh! My favorite Blizzard is
    M & M!!!
    But i haven't had one in FOREVER!
    I may just have to go get me a mini now.
    Oh, you're terrible for reminding me of them!
    But thank you so much for the chance at this give-away!
    =-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. When I was a kid I lived so close I could walk to one of those little old Dairy Queens and buy a malt for 35 cents! My friend and I would scrub our huge kitchen floor for my mom (on our hands and knees, of course!)to earn the money to go.
    Think my favorite Blizzard flavor has to be German chocolate.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, my. I have to admit that I am addicted to the Georgia Mud Fudge Blizzard. so good. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Favorite? I have to have just one? Can't. I tried. I just can't.

    ReplyDelete
  37. My favorite is Reese's PB Cup. Yum!
    Nice giveaway. Thanks.

    Darlis

    ReplyDelete
  38. Gotta be the Reese's! Chocolate and peanut butter, nothing better! LOL!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I've never had a Blizzard, but you did remind me of my favorite ice cream treat as a child. I grew up in a little town called Belleville, Michigan, back in the 50's. My grandparents used to take me to the Rexall drugstore on Main Street, where they had a lunch counter. I always ordered a dish of butter pecan ice cream! All the other kids got chocolate or vanilla and thought I was an odd ball for choosing butter pecan. I just loved those nuts!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Dairy Queen had a big place in my life growing up, too. My family usually ordered the same thing every time. When I rarely ordered a blizzard, my favorite flavor would be either Mocha Chip or M & M or if they had flavor of the month Mint Oreo. But my very favorite thing from Dairy Queen is a vanilla cone dipped in chocolate. My mother always used to get a Peanut Buster Parfait. She was born in the depression, was very frugal, so a Peanut Buster Parfait was a big splurge for her. Growing up we had miniature dachsunds. On their birthdays we would take them to Dairy Queen for a vanilla cone. Fortunately their birthdays were in the summer - Bastille Day (July 14) for one and August 8 for the other. Thanks, Sandy for bringing back these great memories and also helping DQ help CMN.

    ReplyDelete
  41. My favorite flavor are the oreo ones! And growing up we had a dairy queen like that too!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yum - that looks so good! My favorite would be any of them! I love ice cream. I guess I would have to pick Oreo....cookie dough....M&Mmmmmmmmm. Now I want a Blizzard! Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Butterfinger used to be my flavor of choice. Then we learned of my daughter's nut allergy so that was the end of us eating nuts. So now it is Oreo.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, Oreo and Butterfinger (sorry, couldn't choose just one). Thank goodness I don't pass by one that often. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Chocolate Extreme...it's all about the chocolate. Blizzards are my husbands and my special treat. Thanks for offering a giveaway. So very nice of you to share!

    ReplyDelete
  46. French Silk Pie and Heath Bar.. can't choose just one!

    ReplyDelete
  47. We're so sad that there is no Dairy Queen in our new city! But if there were, Mr. Squash and I would both go for a Butterfinger Blizzard!
    Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Sadly, our town lost its' Dairy Queen...I love blizzards...I love Georgia Mudd Blizzards....They make me really happy. Enjoy yours for me :(

    ReplyDelete
  50. We used to have a walk up DQ and I would always get Buster Bars! My favorite Blizzard flavor is Reese Cup!

    ReplyDelete
  51. After reading you blog, I feel I have been deprived, there are no Dairy Queens in Ireland!

    ReplyDelete
  52. My favorite is butterfinger too!! Lucky you. Our DQ closed a few years ago. I really miss them.

    ReplyDelete
  53. As soon as I found out there are mini blizzards I had to have one. My favourite flavour is Chocolate Extreme.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Sandy,
    I think I would choose pecan cluster too- I don't like Oreo cookies so that would not be my flavor.
    I love Dairy Queen ice cream cones the best although I am a fan of Buster bars.
    We do have a Dairy Queen close by that we visit occasionally.
    Thanks for the chance to win your pattern and charm pack.
    Regards,
    Anna

    ReplyDelete
  66. I don't like Blizzards, but I loved the Buster Bar! I guess if I did order a Blizzard, it would probably be a Reese's Peanut Butter one.

  67. I guess it would be oreo, But give me a vanilla choc dipped cone anyday

    ReplyDelete
  68. Definitely Snickers blizzard. I used to work with a radiologist who was addicted to DQ blizzards. When the weekend rotation schedule had this Dr. on the schedule, you knew it was going to be a good weekend. I would bring him a Blizzard for breakfast every Sunday morning he was on the schedule. We (the staff) all really appreciated him.

    ReplyDelete
  69. How about Heath Bar? Ask them to make it with "cold fudge"...can you say DELICIOUS?
    I've also had the Brownie with pecans and that was mighty fine, too!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Any of the chocolate flavors!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm with you on the pecans, but I love the Turtle Pecan Cluster. My daughter just told me about the mini ones, I may have to make the drive.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Cookies & Cream......mmmmmm!!!
    We, also had one of those tiny DQs, then they moved across town in a strip mall.....I guess it was a lot easier than crawling thru the tiny windows!!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  80. My favorite blizzard is Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Sadly there is no Dairy Queen in my town, so I have to go to the next state to get one. I live in SC just across the Savannah River from Augusta, GA. Sounds like a road trip today. Love the fall pattern & fabric, thanks for doing a giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Wow, I agree they are great.. haven't had 1 in years... I never rode the bus I knew (lived close to school) I knew there was a reason to be jealous of the school bus kids! Quilty hugs, Evelyn

    ReplyDelete
  83. What good memories! I love the chocolate cherry one.....mmmm. I can taste it now! LOL. Yvonne.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Peanut butter cup is my favorite. I love the mini's. You can get one and not feel too fat!

    ReplyDelete
  85. OOOOOH my favorite would be oreo mint. When I was much younger and they opened the first Dairy Queen in the town close to me, and Bobbie Curtola was on hand to sing and all the teenage girls drolled. My favorite then was vanilla milk shake. Oh the memories you have brought back to me. think i will drive to the city ofr a blizzard right now. Zoom Zoom I am on my way

    BUT...my grandparents owned a Dairy Queen in St Louis and I worked for them one summer. After hours we would make up our own flavors...and eat...

    ReplyDelete
  93. Mint chocolate chip is really my favorite with Heath candy bar a close second. Our school bus always stopped on the last day of school on the way home, the bus driver treated.

    ReplyDelete
  94. My favorite is Banana Split minus the pineapple with extra real banana.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Decisions, decisions! I like the M&M Blizzard, but then again Oreo is good too.

    ReplyDelete
  96. My current favorite blizzard flavor is Banana Split. With so many different fruits in it, it's got to be health, right? LOL

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Oh yum. My favorite is chocolate covered cherry when they have it.

    While I have many happy memories of DQ, there was a rootbeer place in our small town that had frozen mugs and homemade rootbeer and I remember that sooooo clearly.

    What a wonderful cause.

    Thank you for sharing this with us.

    ReplyDelete
  98. My fav thing from DQ has always been the dipped cone. Could be messy but so yummy.

    Is it safe to admit that I'm not a big fan of ice cream? LOL!

    My favorite would be Oreo Cookie.

  115. I don't have a favourite flavour ... I like to try a new one every time. I love the new mini size - I always found the regular small size too big. Now I can have one more often! Thank you for the giveaway!

  116. Oh my on the previous comment......Snickers and hot fudge........Sounds like something I need to try. My favorite has to be the butterfinger, but anything chocolate is necessary!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Mmmmm the new pecan pie blizzard for me!!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Heath Bar Blizzard....yummy. However, at one time they had a rocky road blizzard with the marshmallows like you get in cereals covered in hard chocolate, and chocolate covered nuts.....that was the best...I just wish they still sold it!

    ReplyDelete
  122. Pecan Cluster Blizzard! I too remember Dilly Bars, Buster bars and the favorite chocolate dip cone! Fond memories!

  125. I've been a loyal Banana Split Blizzard until I tried the Peanut Buster Parfait Blizzard, now it's a toss up between the two.
    My husband always gets the cookie dough Blizzard.

    ReplyDelete
  126. It was always the Banana Split Blizzard for me until I tried the Peanut Buster Parfait Blizzard. Now it's a toss up between the two.

    My husband always gets Cookie Dough.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I love the Penut Butter Cup. That DQ looks like the one I went to in S.W. Iowa. Does any one remember checking your Dilly Bar stick to see if you got a free one?

    ReplyDelete
  128. I haven't had a DQ Blizzard in years but I think I remember a Reese's PB Cup Blizzard. Love PB Cups! Also, the picture of the DQ looks exactly like the one in Beaverton, OR before it was torn down to make room for a DQ restaurant. Ahhh, memories.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Reece's PB Cup with Chocolate ice cream. Wow! Delicious.

  130. Choclate covered cherries!! It don't get any better than that!!

    ReplyDelete
  131. believe it or not, I have never had a blizzard! My loss.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I too have never had a Blizzard, but if I were to have one your Pecan Cluster sounds great. Everytime I go to the DQ, I always want a plain vanilla cone -- I love vanilla DQ ice cream!! DQ vanilla has been around a long time and I'm glad!!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Do I really have to have a favorite? I like many flavors. The DQ is definitely bad news for me. I am glad it is not open all year.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I love the butterfinger, too. 35 years ago when I married my husband he was going to college at Murray State University in KY and they had a DQ just like the one in your picture. I would order a chocolate chip malt. They streamed the hot chocolate that they dipped the cones in into the malt and the chocolate turned into little hard pieces. It was the BEST thing in the world. 30 years later we went back to visit and the DQ was still there and they still made the chocolate chip malt the same way. I ordered one and it tasted EXACTLY as I had remembered. It was SOOOOOO good. I can almost taste it. Unfortunately, there is no DQ near us now so I'll have to wait until I go on a trip to get a blizzard. Thanks for the post.

  144. Oreo blizzards were a favorite everytime my little neice(now 21) came to my house in the summer. I'm going to see her next week and guess what we'll be doing!! I love the acorn pattern.

  145. I have to say cookie dough. Mmmm! On our way home from childbirth classes my husband and I would stop for Blizzards. They're still a treat though.
