Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cakes

Dairy Queen in Herculaneum, MO

I was born in 1984. That was the same year that President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the month of July as National Ice Cream month. While I was not born in July, my absolute favorite birthday “cake” has always been a classic Dairy Queen ice cream cake. Perhaps it is because of my family’s fun tradition with this special purchase or maybe it is due to the smooth vanilla ice cream mixed with creamy decadent fudge and crunchy itty-bitty chocolate cookie crumbles that conjure up positive childhood memories and sweet associations. My children are now associating their birthdays with incorporating this frozen treat to make their special day even sweeter.

While my son’s 9th birthday was in April, he wanted to have a summer pool party to celebrate with his friends. I called the Dairy Queen in Herculaneum, MO to see if they had an ice cream cake, with the Oreo blizzard blend, in stock. They did and said they would be happy to personalize this for him.

My son was so excited to go into the newly remodeled and renovated Dairy Queen to pick this up. The team there is always so friendly and efficient. The gal who brought up the cake and the gal who checked us out both took time out of their busy evening to engage with my son to wish him a happy birthday. He was elated. Of course, he and my daughter had to enjoy a blizzard that night. While they ate, we had fun walking around to see all the impressive indoor and outdoor improvements they have made. If you have not been in lately, you should check them out.

With the hot temperatures and so many upcoming summer celebrations, I encourage you to stop into a locally-owned and operated Dairy Queen to savor their sweet frozen treats. They provide cool ways to recreate childhood memories while providing an opportunity to create some new ones.
