Dairy Queen’s Firework Oreo Blizzard
Claire Miles - July 7, 2018


By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!

And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!

Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!

And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

Summer without treats is not even summer.  It just doesn’t work. It’s like Drake without Josh and Mary-Kate without Ashley.  Going through a scoring hot day without a refreshing cold treat is basically a kid’s worst nightmare, and should be declared illegal.

Well, thankfully, Dairy Queen is here to save the day with their new Oreo Firework Blizzard.  It was specially introduced to the menu for the Fourth of July, and will be available throughout the entire month of July, to give us all a chance to show our pride and love for America by eating delicious ice cream.  It’s available in a variety of sizes, but who are we kidding, we all know you’re getting the biggest one.

The delicious treat contains pieces of Oreos cookies as well as red and blue pop-rock candy. It’s mixed together with DQ’s vanilla soft serve, and is packed into perfection in the blizzard cup.

Major yum! Happy Fourth!
