DQ Offers Fun Valentine’s Gift

Dairy Queen's Red Velvet Spoon Case.
Presenting the Dairy Queen Red Velvet Spoon Case
What do you give the valentine who has everything? Dairy Queen holds the answer.

In a unique and fund-raising promotion for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Dairy Queen is offering the Red Velvet Spoon Case for just $4.99. Part of the fast food giant’s Red Velvet Collection, the “keepsake jewelry box is lovingly encased in beautiful red velvet fabric and opens to reveal the iconic Dairy Queen Red Spoon resting on a white, satiny pillow. It’s the perfect way to pop the question, ‘Will you eat this cake with me?’”

See, it’s part of a set. DQ wants you to not only buy the spoon by also the Cupid ice cream cake too. The clever promotion will give about $3 from each spoon purchased to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. But there is a minor catch. You will need to order your spoon purchase by this Friday, February 6 to insure delivery by Valentine’s Day.

The DQ Collectibles website also has many other fun and nostalgic gifts for those of us who have been around long enough to recognize them!
