Dairy Queen Made Me Do It - And I LOVED It
Dang it, I just hate it when that happens. So this darling little gal working the counter (I figured I better at least walk in and use 2 or 3 calories since I hadn't planned this treat and I've eaten my fair share of M&M's to fund the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra) was so very helpful. But what did I want? The Banana Cream Pie Blizzard or the Ooey Gooey Caramel Chocolate Blizzard. Fruity or chocolatey... so many decisions could drive a girl to drink... or eat more ice cream.
Hmmmm, what to get?
The DQ goddess suggested if I live near by, I can stop back anytime for the Banana Cream Pie Blizzard, but the Ooey Gooey Caramel Brownie was just their flavor of the month. Cha-ching! Chocolate wins hands down!
"What Size?" she asks. Again, my head is spinning, so many decisions... "We have small, medium, large or the new mini."
"Oh I better go with the mini," I say. "I wasn't planning on stopping here today."
With a puzzled look on her face the girl cups her hand and whispers, "The small is only 40 cents more and double the size." Then she winks at me.
Ahhhhh, music to my ears. She had me a "Double the size." After all, I'm all about economics and helping people get more for less is helping fuel the American dream, right?!?!
So the rest is all history. I could have licked that disposable paper blizzard cup. It.Was.That.Good!
Have you ever had one of those food moments? Care to share...the moment, not the food! ;) I'd love to hear I'm not the only crazy woman that has food inspired jewelry!
Have a terrific day!
