Do you have a pet reindeer or know someone who does? If so, I regret to inform you that you may have missed out on some free ice cream. Last month, Dairy Queen offered free Reindeer Bites Blizzards to anyone who brought a “real, living, breathing” reindeer to any of their stores on Friday, December 24, 2010 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
I’m guessing that either Dairy Queen wasn’t too serious about this promotion or they overestimated the number of reindeer owners throughout America — and the number of reindeer owners willing to cart their oversized pet to a Dairy Queen on Christmas Eve.
Of course, if anyone were to own a pet reindeer, I’m guessing they live in Alaska, where there are just 5 Dairy Queens in the entire state. Just another reason I have to believe this DQ promotion was tongue in cheek. Although, it was rumored that one gentleman received 8 tiny Blizzards that day.
