A Tasty Promotion from Dairy Queen and General Mills #LMDconnector

Welcome to my happy place ~

Port Elgin marina, July 2012
There is something so soothing about being at the waters edge.  I love the sounds, smells and sights of being on one of the gorgeous beaches of Lake Huron.  I even have hopes and dreams of one day being able to retire, with my husband, to the beach community of Port Elgin Ontario.  We are so very lucky to have the opportunity to spend several long hot days of summer relaxing on the sandy beaches on the shores of Lake Huron.

Those lazy, hazy days of summer are full of memories with family and friends.  A perfect summer day to our family is spending the day playing in the waves, building sandcastles, a picnic on the beach (complete with chasing seagulls away), and when we are ready to pack up, taking a stroll along the strip, ultimately ending up at Dairy Queen for a delicious treat. 

No trip to the beach is complete without a stop at Dairy Queen.

Thanks to a great promotion from our friends at General Mills, we won't have to take out the wallet the next time we make a pit-stop at Dairy Queen.


Next time you are shopping, take a peak down the cereal aisle for specially marked boxes of some of your family favourite cereals.   I always love the promos which General Mills comes out with, but this time it takes the cake Oreo Blizzard!

All the news and details you will need to know to participate 
in this mouth-watering promotion

Starting April 1st, specially marked boxes of General Mills cereal began  hitting store shelves.  These boxes have two coupons - one for a free small Orange Julius beverage and the second for a free small Blizzard!  Redeem the Orange Julius coupon between April 1 and July 31, and redeem the coupon for a Blizzard treat between May 1 - 31, at participating Dairy Queen locations across Canada.

These coupons have a value of $8.00.    And, it couldn't be any easier - just remember to cut out your coupons and keep the redemption dates in mind.  Enjoy your favourite cereal, and then later partake in a tasty treat for FREE!    To my family, this is the ultimate promotion.  Life is sweet at the beach, and this offer just kicked it up a notch!

LOL. This is a great promotion but I am not going to tell my kids about it yet. Why? You ask, um because they already ask chronically let's go to DQ every frigging night. I am not going to give them more reasons - Oh look mom you also get free stuff and it supports children's charities. That means we have to eat there. My kids are like me - they like to spend money where it is a good deal and where they know they are doing something good with it.

Awesome deal DQ!
DQ and I have a history that is quite hilarious. Years ago I used to go to the Jenny Craig in North York, ON....and my husband used to walk me from the apartment to the store because right next door was a DQ! So in I went to get my weigh-in and in he went, Strawberry Cheesecake DQ in hand, to wait for me in the waiting room. I wish I could read the minds of the other people in that Jenny Craig at the time!

Free + DQ = Happy Daddy! I also make my cereal decisions based on what's on the front of the box. When there are hockey cards on the back, I go crazy! LOL

My kids love a special treat from DQ especially in the summertime. I love a good deal so why not take care of 2 birds with 1 stone!

Love it. Nummy time!

Orange Julius is owned by DQ and that makes me happy, I had my first OJ in years and love them and healthier than an Ice Capp fron Tim's with 700 calories! Lake Huron looks gorgeous, all I would need is a OJ and a chair or bench a book and I would be in heaven:)
