Deal-icious offer from Dairy Queen

Dairy Queen has launched a new value menu, DQ Sweet Deals. The best part about it is you get to choose what's in your combo for a really sweet price - two items for $3, three for $4 or four for $5.

Sounds perfect for those ice-cream emergency days! In addition to a cone or a sundae, you can choose something from the grill, as well -- a cheeseburger, hotdog, salad, fries, onion rings, a chicken wrap -- and something to wash it down with.

DQ has cleverly asked bloggers to help get the word out about the new DQ Sweet Deals menu by asking what deal we'd make to try the Sweet Deals menu for free.

Here's the deal I'd broker:

I can't believe you're asking me what I would do to sample your Sweet Deal. Haven't I done enough already to prove that I love you and that I'm worthy of your love and your deal-icious affection?

When my heart was broken, I turned to you. I don't know what was saltier, your fries or my tears. When I was sick, you nursed me back to health with a soothing vanilla cone. That worked better than antiobiotics or mama's chicken soup ever did.

And there have been good times, too. Don't you remember that dilly of a summer day when we shared a Dilly Bar at the park, racing to finish it before the ice cream melted down my fingers. And on my birthday, you surprised me with a Blizzard cake, churning up a blizzard of emotions in me -- happiness, excitement, love and gratitude,.

You're more than my confidant and my soulmate. You're also my teacher and the source of my wisdom. During the unending presidential primaries, when I was waffling between Barack and Hillary, we shared a waffle cone and you talked me through both of their platforms. When I was panicking about my 401(k) and my dwindling stock portfolio, over a banana split you advised me not to split the market.

I have forsaken all the others -- Ben, Jerry, Baskin, Robbin and the Germans, Haagen and Dazs. Even Edy. (It was college; I was experimenting!) I was hoping that we were close to the point that you'd be slipping an onion ring on my finger and sealing our commitment. And now you're asking what deal would I make for a Sweet Deal?

How about I throw out all my skinny jeans and give up on that dream forever? I'd do it to be with you.

Love you forever,
