At least they waited until September, unlike some ahem *other* places...

As we get closer to the fall months of the year, more and more places are announcing when their coveted pumpkin-spiced (fill in the blank) menu item will return. I could personally care less about 95% of all this, but I do get excited about one tiny thing...

For those of you who are wondering, Dairy Queen’s Pumpkin Pie Blizzard will make its glorious return on September 3rd, which just so happens to be in time for my birthday (Sept 5) this year! The vanilla soft serve treat features pieces of pumpkin pie, topped with whipped cream and finished off with a bit of nutmeg.

Yummmm!

There’s no word yet on how long Dairy Queen will carry the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard, but if you’re a fan of the frosty sweet treat and a bigger fan of all things pumpkin then you should mark your calendar for this one and find your nearest Dairy Queen location.

I should also point out that several times during my life that instead of birthday cake, I've requested birthday pumpkin pie for my dessert. So yes, I'm truly obsessed with the stuff! So if anyone would like to bring me some next week, I would absolutely not turn you down.
