Shirley Temple made animal crackers famous for being in soup but your local Dairy Queen is taking it one step further.

It's no secret that we've been experiencing some strange times with some unprecedented challenges. With so many life changes hitting us at what seems to feel like million miles an hour I believe it's important to appreciate the little things.

As we slowly get back to some sort of normal and we begin to go outside as the weather gets warmer one of the first things I'll do is relax outside and enjoy a Blizzard on a park bench. Is there any better sign of summer?

According to Dairy Queen, they've just released new flavors here in the Hudson Valley.

One of which is the Frosted Animal Cookie Blizzard. Finally, DQ has combined two of my most favorite things on the planet.

Diet starts tomorrow, right?

No, you don't have to wait for the quarantine to be over to indulge. You can get one to go and sit at home and Netflix and chill, literally.
