I was so excited when Dairy Queen contacted me and asked me if I wanted to team up with them on their DQ Blizzard Battle campaign. What did I have to do? Try the Pumpkin Pie and Apple Pie blizzards and let them know which one I liked best. I said YES, I would love to. Who can resist a DQ blizzard anyway?? When I was pregnant with my son I had a Butterfinger blizzard nearly every day for months. I craved them!!! I guess that might explain his obsession with ice cream. 😉
Anyway, as a thank you for working with them they sent me this super cute gift basket.
This is what it had inside. A Pier One adorable pie plate (my mom is already trying to figure out a way to steal that one from me), sunglasses, sweatbands, tattoos, stickers and t-shirts. We are all over fun stuff like this so we couldn’t wait to get to Dairy Queen and try out these blizzards.
My kids were convinced before we ever left the house of which one they would prefer. As you can see, my daughter was choosing Apple Pie and my son was convinced his favorite would be the Pumpkin Pie.
Here’s the pumpkin pie. They were both melting super fast even though we ate them right there outside of Dairy Queen. You gotta love these hot summer days!
Here’s the apple pie… Look at that yummy cinnamon on top! You all know how much I love me some cinnamon!!
In the end, my daughter didn’t like either one. However, she isn’t a fan of either pie in general so I wasn’t really surprised. She ended up with a Oreo blizzard and was happy as a clam. Believe it or not, my son changed his mind once he tried them and said hands down that the Apple Pie Blizzard was the winner. He said it was really, really good and he would definitely order that again. It just had a much more authentic apple pie feeling and taste to it.
Of course I wasn’t going to be left out of the action so I tried them both too. I just knew that I would end up liking the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard as well (that’s why I wore orange!), but in the end the Apple Pie Blizzard was definitely the best. Hands down!
We came home and voted for the Apple Pie Blizzard on the DQ Blizzard Battle web site.
You can’t go wrong with ANY blizzard! Go try the Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie blizzards for yourself and then go vote for which one you like the best.
