You are looking at what is left of my Coke Float.
It all started with my trip to town, on Saturday, to photograph the Railroad Depot Museum.
As I sat in my truck, parked by the museum, I looked across the parking space and saw the Dairy Queen sign. The longer I sat, waiting for the museum to open, the louder the Dairy Queen sign called out to me....."Lunch, lunch, LUNCH!
They make it so easy with a drive-up window. If you have one in your town, you know what I mean. Well...that's my story and I'm sticking to it !
You may be familiar with the Dairy Queen, because in 2008, there were over 5,700 locations, in 19 countries. What is the slogan, on the bag, in your town?
Having a light breakfast Saturday morning, I decided to splurge and have a DQ Dude Burger....French Fries, of course....and top it off with a Coke Float. If you are not familiar with a float, it is Coke poured over a generous helping of Soft Serve ice cream, made in the store.
Trust me when I say, "Calories should not be counted when eating here" ! And, yes, I did eat it in my truck as I was waiting.
Temptation is everywhere !
Looks like I wasn't the only one, tempted to have lunch, at the Dairy Queen....
We actually are lucky enough to have a Dairy Queen here in Redmond, WA. My weakness is the soft-serve ice cream and especially on warm days, I hear the gentle calling of my name to go through the drive-thru! LOL!!ReplyDelete
However, when we lived in Massachusetts, I was amazed that the Dairy Queens closed down from November to April. My daughter, Erin, bought me a soft-serve ice cream maker to get me through those months:-D
Love your photos Meggie and I understand the temptation!
Hello Susan....I may need to take a look at a soft-serve ice cream maker! You know, when I stated writing this post, I thought DQ was only in Tedas. Wow....was I wrong...Delete
We grabbed ice cream at DQ on Saturday. Their kid's cones are only 140 calories so you don't have to feel too bad about them!ReplyDelete
Hi Lisa...140 calories is not bad...it's the burger and fries that get you in trouble, but it was good! Thanks for signing on to my blog!Delete
Our Dairy Queen burned down last Summer so we had to wait almost a year and by the time they reopened a month a go I had broken my Blizzard habit......you just tempted me though...yum!ReplyDelete
You are so funny....oh, go ahead a have one!Delete
Resistance is futile............looks very delicious though........have a lovely summer Meggie, although as I'm typing this we have thunder, lightening and hail going on here.........here comes summer, lol.ReplyDelete
Hello Lily....I hope you have a good summer, too. I will be looking for you when you post again. You've had a lot of rain this year...Delete
I may have to make a DQ run today!ReplyDelete
Hi Jan....I can't believe how many readers relate to the DQ !Delete
We have a DQ in our small town and it is much too close! Hubby had the new Confetti Blizzard the other evening and said it was good. I had a Butterfinger Blizzard, my favorite. I'll have to look for the slogan next time, I haven't paid any attention to it before.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your week!
Hi Cheryl....both blizzards sound good to me! At least, I need to drive a ways for mine.Delete
DQ hasn't made it as far as my part of Worcestershire... Infact I'm not sure that there are any in England. Nevertheless, I'm a big fan of Coke Floats!!!! JxReplyDelete
Hi Jan...I did a google search and couldn't get an answer. I'm sure you have some place that is just as good for fast food!Delete
Is there a Texas town that doesn't have a DQ? I leave you one thought, French silk pie Blizzard.ReplyDelete
Hi Janet....I think you are right, at least all small Texas towns. Hummmmm....french silk pie blizzard. Sounds good to me !ReplyDelete
