Evil, Evil Dairy Queen!

As you all know, I’ve been dieting this year, and thus far I’ve lost in the neighborhood of 50 lbs, 3 pants sizes and who knows what other things. It’s been a good year for getting in shape. But, now come the holidays. I’m hoping I can hold out and not backslide too badly, but then…then there is the devil in a cup. Once a year Dairy Queen brings out my arch-enemy…my Kryptonite…they bring out…THE PUMPKIN PIE BLIZZARD!

Devil In A Cup

Now, don’t knock it until you try it. They use graham crackers for the “pie crust”, put in some orange flavoring with the ice cream, spray on whip cream, and sprinkle on some nutmeg….yummmmmmmmmmmm. But alas, my pumpkiny friend is leaving me for another year as DQ only has it for November each year. Which probably adds to my enjoyment as I wait all year for it.

So, if you have access to a DQ, swing by before the end of the month and join in my pumpkin appreciation!

  • Those things’re gross dude. Now, the mint one they make around Christmas; that’s a whole other story. But pumpkin? C’mon, man. Eww.

  • Do not mock the pumpkiny goodness….
