It’s my hope that this blog would somehow find it’s way to the people who run the Dairy Queen corporation.
Please know that I support the DQ. I’ve been a longtime fan of their many, many delicious treats and hearty meals.
But I can’t hold it in any longer.
DEAR DAIRY QUEEN,
ENOUGH WITH TURNING THE BLIZZARD UPSIDE DOWN. WE GOT IT.
Really? They’re still flipping over the Blizzard? This is like the longest running fast-food gimmick in the history of deep fried items and drive through lanes.
What’s the reasoning behind continuing to do this? Is there some random family that hasn’t had a Blizzard in the 20 history of the soft serve wonder? Is there some guy in a minivan screaming,
“Kids! Get up here and look at this! This lady just turned the ice cream UPSIDE DOWN!”
It doesn’t impress any more. In fact, it just seems to add a level of awkwardness to the transaction, doesn’t it?
I pay my money, the dude brings it over and I reach for it…but no, he’s got a flip it. So I sit there and wait for it. I’m not impressed. Neither is the employee. Let’s stop the charade, huh, DQ?
For crying out loud, it’s a freaking BLIZZARD. I don’t buy it because it defies gravity…I buy it because it makes my heart happy.
Anybody else with me on this one?
