We’re already proud a supporter of various community projects and Miracle Treat Day is a particularly special event. This annual fundraiser is a win-win for all involved.

The featured Miracle Treat Day “Blizzard Treat of the Day” will be Oreo® which is still the most popular Blizzard Treat to date. The Blizzard of the Month for August in the U.S. is Tripleberry® Brownie, which is made with rich choco chunks, Orange Julius® Tripleberry fruit puree and chewy brownie pieces. All other Blizzard flavors will also be available that day.
