I first heard about Diary Queen’s “S’mores Music Video Contest” about two months ago. DQ asked their fans to “create the next verse” in the theme song for their new S’Mores Blizzard. The company really promoted this contest hard and even mentioned it during their commercials. So I’ve been hearing about Dairy Queen S’more Blizzards all summer and just now it finally hit me that DAIRY QUEEN IS SELLING BLIZZARDS WITH S’MORES IN THEM. What the hell is wrong with me!?!? Why did it takes 8 weeks for my brain to realize that this was an important piece of information? Why have I not been going to Dairy Queen once a week to get a S’more Blizzard?? I feel like I’ve wasted half my summer! Vanilla ice cream + graham crackers + chocolate + marshmallows sounds fuggin’ delicious. Why did it take ice cream scientists so long to come up with that? Now that I hear it, that glorious combo sounds like a no brainer, doesn’t it?
Hmmm, well right now it’s 9:14PM. I bet my local DQ is open ’till ten. Maybe if I cut this post short I can get there before they close. Ok, so yeah, here are the winners of the S’Mores contest. Um, I think the sponsors picked three finalists and then voters picked the winners. First prize was $10,000, second prize was a $1,000 Dairy Queen gift card and third prize was a one free Blizzard a week for a year (oh baby). I can’t embed the videos so click the image below to see the winning entries.
Ha! Even after Photoshopping that screenshot it’s only 9:28PM. It’s time to head to DQ and take my frosty reward. But I swear if it turns out they closed at 9 tonight I’m gonna burn that little shack to the ground.
