    I’m considering it a good thing that we don’t have any of these (except DQ) in my area. No temptation…

      • Shoppingfan

        Yep, Renee that’s what I stated! I just didn’t say flavors. To use that normally but it, know that the limited edition is in reference to flavor. Glad you were able to get yours!

    How many national ice cream days are there in a year? it was just national ice cream day like last month or so. I remember them talking about it on the radio.

    • Shoppingfan

      😂 there’s only one National Ice Cream Day and it’s always the 3rd Sun of July. There is a Chocolate Ice Cream day in June & Vanilla ice cream in July! 😂 Seems like some extra summer fun!

  6. Caroline

    It’s not as good as before. I remembered DQ gives free cone.
    Now no free cone from any, only some $ off which is like nothing comparing to the expensive ice cream cone itself.
