On July 27th Dairy Queen’s iconic frozen treat, the Blizzard, will celebrate its 25th birthday. To mark the occasion, Canadian Olympic gold medalist MaÑ‘lle Ricker will be handing out free mini Blizzards to everyone that stops by TD Plaza (at Georgia and Granville) between 11:30am and 1:00pm. The Blizzardmobile will also be on site to get those caramel, candy bar, cookie chunk cravings flowing.

The Next Miss604 Contest

Dairy Queen is active in the community and they even sponsored Blogathon Vancouver last year, stopping by with treats for the entire blogging crew. They have also given me two $25 gift cards to give away to my readers.

Here’s how to enter to win one of two gift cards:

  • Share on Facebook
  • Leave a comment (which can even be to confirm you shared on Facebook)
  • Post the following on Twitter:
  • RT to enter to win a $25 Dairy Queen gift card from @Miss604 http://ow.ly/2eaRP

    Remember to stop by that day for your free treat and donations to the Children’s Miracle Network will be gratefully accepted on site. Follow @DQCanada on Twitter for updates or to see if the Blizzardmobile will be swinging through your hometown this summer.

    **Please note: As mentioned above, the free mini Blizzards are only being handed out at the TD Plaza and not at local DQ locations. They will have a supply of 5,000 Blizzards for the giveaway.**

    Update My winners are Alex & Mila, congratulations and I hope everyone got to sample some Blizzards the other day!

    I will draw two contest winners July 28th.

    6. Donna says:

      yum yum last week I had a mint oreo cookie dough blizzard. It was so good I had to sit for a while after and concentrate on regular breathing

    7. Michael Kwan says:

      Are the free Blizzards only downtown? So not at the other locations around town?

    8. Neil Wyles says:

      The other free blizzard location will be at B.C. Children’s Hospital. Dairy Queen is a huge supporter of the Miracle Network.

      It is not at a specific DQ location, but in the square at Georgia and Granville.

      Blizzard’s are a really great Dairy Treat, although I could say that about even the simple original cone….it has been pleasing me for many more than 25 years and because it is ice milk it fits nicely into any diet plan that I might be on.

    124. Kirstin says:
