How ‘Bout a BOGO DQ Blizzard With That Total Eclipse Viewing on Aug. 21st?

Unless you’ve been living on the moon, you know that a total solar eclipse is going down on Monday, August 21st, 2017. What you might not know is that there will also be a blizzard. Actually, make that a Blizzard®. While you’re at it, you could make it 99 cents, too. That is, if Dairy Queen hadn’t already beaten you to it.

Once-in-a-lifetime celestial phenomenon notwithstanding, the restaurant franchise is refusing to be outdone. Enter the DQ® Blizzard  Buy-One, Get-One for 99 cents* promotion commencing August 21st at participating Dairy Queen® and DQ Grill & Chill® locations throughout the U.S. Available through Sunday, September 3rd, this BOGO deal is pulling double duty as a nod to the unofficial end of summer.

“We love any excuse to celebrate with our fans,” said Maria Hokanson, Executive Vice President of Marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ). “What better way to watch the eclipse or enjoy the last lazy days of summer than with a Blizzard BOGO? It’s sharable with family or with a friend, or you might want to keep both Blizzard Treats just for yourself, which we understand completely.”

Fans will have a limited time to enjoy the delectable Triple Truffle Blizzard Treat, a trio of smooth, rich fudge, peanut butter, and caramel truffles blended with signature DQ classic vanilla soft serve, also available in stores until September 3rd.  One can also score all other Blizzard Treat flavors during the eclipse-led offer.
