A total solar eclipse will cross Texas on April 8 and for many Texans, the skies will go completely dark as the moon passes between the sun and the earth blocking the face of the sun. During this celestial event, which occurs only once every 375 years in any given place, Dairy Queen restaurants in Texas will celebrate by offering a free DQ Sandwich Treat while supplies last at participating restaurants.

The offer is only available through the DQ Texas mobile app on April 8 for new and existing DQ Texas app users. DQ fans can enjoy the cool sensation of the world-famous soft serve, nestled between two chocolate flavored wafers.

“The total solar eclipse is a significant event in Texas,” said Lou Romanus, CEO of Texas Dairy Queen Operators’ Council. “There is no better way to celebrate with family and friends on the day of the eclipse than enjoying a DQ Sandwich, which happens to be lunar shaped.”

The total eclipse enters Texas at Eagle Pass at 1:27 p.m. and will travel 480 miles through the Lone Star state in about 25 minutes, leaving Texas at 1:52 p.m. There are hundreds of Texas cities who will experience the solar eclipse from South Texas to Central and North Texas.

When watching the total solar eclipse, viewers must always look through safe solar viewing glasses. The DQ Sandwich or regular sunglasses are not appropriate safety glasses.

Fans also can enjoy the Blizzard of the Month fan favorite flavors, Brownie Batter and Frosted Animal Cookie.

The Frosted Animal Cookie Blizzard will bring back childhood nostalgia as you indulge in vanilla soft serve, pink confetti frosting and animal cookies. The Brownie Batter Blizzard Treat features the world-famous vanilla soft serve, blended with rich brownie batter and chewy brownie dough pieces.
