Cookies: June 2009 Archives

GS_DQ.jpgPeanut butter and chocolate always has been a popular flavor combination. Now Dairy Queen has taken that flavor profile to new heights with the introduction of the first-ever Girl Scouts Tagalongs Peanut Butter Patties Blizzard Flavor Treat, slated as the Blizzard of the Month for July.


This marks the second year that Dairy Queen is partnering with Girl Scouts of the USA, which last year culminated with the debut of the Girl Scouts Thin Mint Cookie Blizzard Treat.  The Thin Mint Blizzard will be the Blizzard of the Month for August.  Last summer, Dairy Queen served more than 10 million Girl Scouts Thin Mint Cookie Blizzards, making it the most popular limited time Blizzard flavor ever.


"You might say it's a Girl Scout summer at Dairy Queen with these two Blizzard flavors on our menu in July and August," said Michael Keller, chief brand officer for International Dairy Queen, Inc. "But the relationship goes beyond that. During the week of July 20, we are hosting DQ Girl Scouts Appreciation Week. Through events at our local Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill® locations around the country, we will support this preeminent leadership organization in building girls of courage, confidence and character."


During Girl Scouts Appreciation Week use this coupon for $1 off your Peanut Butter Pattie Blizzard!  To find participating stores visit or call DQ Customer Service at 866-793-7582.


Girls can also develop their entrepreneurial skills with a behind-the-scenes tour of a DQ store. Girls will learn how to run a successful business, gain insight into the product development process, and enhance their financial literacy skills. Your tour will be topped off by an opportunity to make a DQ cone with a twirl the way the experts do it!  Troops should schedule a store tour during July 20 - 26.


Steps for a Successful DQ Store Tour

  • Call stores at least one week in advance to schedule their tour.
  • Ask the DQ owner what time and day is most convenient for a tour.
  • Review the DQ Activity Guide prior to your tour.

After much consideration, we have signed a one-year contract with Little Brownie Bakers to provide cookies for the 2010 cookie sale.  We appreciate the input that all of you provided regarding our choice of cookie bakers, particularly those who attended the presentations by ABC Bakers.  We were impressed by the staff at ABC and the product they provide.  However, we decided to go with Little Brownie because of concerns about the new cookie online ordering system that ABC will debut this year.


Please know that we are continuing to assess this situation so that we may provide the best cookie selling opportunities to our girls.  We will take a look again at both cookie bakers following the 2010 sale.
