Dairy Queenpraying to the porcelain god after cake

U Review updated:

Mr. Kummer, my mother, Angela, forwarded your email, addressed to my sister, Samantha, to me.

When we were children, my grandmother and Grandfather used to drive from out of state to pick up my brother, sister and I so that we could spend some of our summer vacation with them. Being children, we could never wait until half way through the trip because they would always stop at Dairy Queen to get us a treat, and so they could rest a bit. We loved it. Over the years I have taken my children to DQ and paid the higher prices because of the nostalgic memories I have of going to DQ as a child. Unfortunately, because of the literal and figurative bad taste this has left in my mouth, this will no longer be the case.

I am contacting you to say that we are very disappointed in your establishment.

The Elderly woman you refer to is my grandmother. She has gone to Dairy Queen to get an ice cream cake for all of our birthdays ever since she tried one about 2 years ago. She loves them, says she has never had anything so good.

All of this is why the moldy cake and rude treatment has come as such a great disappointment to her.

I understand that ice cream will not mold in the freezer. It was not the ice cream that was moldy, it was the crumbly cookie in the center. I also understand that the cookie portion probably did not mold in the freezer, it is my opinion that it was foul when it was used to make the cake.

This may not have been noticed when the cake was made because the odor was faint until you got a bite close to your nose. It was not visibly moldy, but there was a very pungent moldy flavor.

In your email you stated that you and your staff enjoyed eating the cake we returned. I hope that you are all feeling well. My husband ate a few bites before he got to a portion of the cake that had the foul flavor. It wasn't long after that and he started feeling a little sick. After the short, cakeless festivities, I took him home and he was feeling worse. Shortly after, he was in the bathroom praying to the porcelain god. About an hour after he had evacuated the entire contents of his stomach, he felt much better.

The birthday cake was in fact beautifully decorated and went straight into the freezer after a 10 minute trip from your DQ to my grandmothers house. It was in her deep freeze for about 3 days.

The center could not have molded from being out of the freezer, the entire cake would have melted in the time it would have taken for that to happen.

A gift certificate in the amount of our purchase is in fact a gesture of good will and is appreciated, but, this did us no good in the celebrations of the day. We were not willing to take the chance that the same batch of cookie center might have been used in one of these cakes made so close to the same time.

I am glad to hear that the employee has been disciplined for the rude behavior and that you will continue to train and re-train your employees in customer service. The same with the sanitation issues we described.

I have a hard time understanding why you agree with the sanitation issues but disagree about the state of the birthday cake.

Best Regards,
Kerri & Jim, Josh, Anna, Angela, Samantha, Tim, Margie, Harry, Jody, Randy, Tony, Candice

    I like eggs within a cake. Same vegan but with egg yolks * quinoa flour.
    For employment hope to see Dairy queen search for more trangendred female e mployeers. I was targeted & fired just because I was two spirited expressions. Hope to see more gendre inlcusiveness with X tended vacation benefits march break 4 months within quebec, Canada & paid sick leave benifits for students etc applying part time @ Dairy Queen.

    The buns were soggy on hamburgers and chicken sandwiches and I believe we were overcharged. Tried calling the store twice when we got home but no one answered.

    My order was 100% wrong. Charged for all the wrong things. Then when I got my actual food the ice cream was not ice cream, but a melted puddle of milk. This is quite literally not the first time this has happened to me or others.

    I went to DQ at 16:20 and ordered a flamethrower burger. My burger was a soggy, smelly mess of meat. Disgusting!! It did not taste good at all. The lettuce was brown and soggy, so was the meat patty. The food smelled like rotten eggs and tasted like it too.

    We went to Dairy Queen because we wanted a little bit of everything. 2 7$ meals with strips drinks and fries. We ordered a combo and upgraded fries to poutine and never got it. I was charged 2$ more for something I never received. This has also happened more then once in several occasions, and also service is friendly, but get the vibe "seriously"

    I walked into the DQ in Zimmerman and asked to order a cake. First time ordering an ice cream cake for my 3 year old. first time ordering a cake from DQ ever. The worker said to me the book is all over and usually in the back. He said he could not find it and I couldn't order a cake. Is this company for real. It is nothing but a disappointment!!!

    There was a hair in my burger. Clearly not mine. Too expensive of a sandwich for a hair lol. And why does it have to be 350 characters... This is a waste of time. I have explained my issue simply and orderly. There is no need to add more. I dont want a hair in my $7 burger. Period

    I pay out the nose for a DQ Blizzard, and half of it is just plain iced cream. Spent almost 30 dollars on a few blizzards and they're all half assed. I want a refund and for people serving blizzards do actually try when people are paying out the nose for ice cream.

    I always go to the DQ on Forest Avenue & Van Peltz Street on Staten Island, New York
    My main problem is the amount of ice cream in the large looks like the small
    This DQ should have some one from headquarters come down and checkout the way they do business

    Ordered two medium cones. They looked like stacked slop and were the same weight as a small cone. No bumps. No Q at the top. VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. I worked for DQ for many years. What has happened to great customer service? What happened to quality. So terribly disappointed.

    They don't want to honor the free Mini Blizzard for a year, one free mini blizzard per week I was there on today April 14th and they punched for next week, so I can used my Blizzard card again on the week of April 22, 2018 that is 8 days away. When I was there on last Saturday April 7, 2018 they punched for that week April 1 .

    Why on earth do you think paper bags are the smart option? I lost a bag of ice cream do to condensation soaking the paper making it rip open. Did you guys never take science in high school or are you all drop outs? Because clearly you don't have the required brain cells to make smart buisness decisions.

    Burger was ordered without pickles and onions due to allergies.
    The order was to take out and not eat localy. I noticed that they did put onions and pickles on it ( thanks ? ) before I stated eating it.

    The reciept clearly states that I ordered it was ordered without.

    Our lack of quantity and quality of product with our chicken strip basket is shocking. Unacceptable. We opened up our 6 piece chicken strip basket and found 6 tiny pieces of chicken and a small amount of fries. I was extremely disappointed. Also our smoothie was watery and full of huge ice chunks.

    I ordered a crispy ranch wrap. Instead of making sure the chicken was up to date. After making the wrap they microwaved it. The lettuce and wrap was soggy, and the chicken was very tough. I was half way home when I noticed otherwise would have taken it back.

    My parents and I went to Dairy Queen in Fruita Colorado. The service was horrific. They not only got our order wrong with two items on it but they as well made us feel like we had no idea what we ordered. They did not even offer to make it right or apologize for their mistake. This was terrible service.

    We was at Dairy Queen to have lunch. When we sat down we say some dead roaches on the back of the seating ledge. We reported it to the employee he swept them off the ledge into the floor and said we know there is a problem and it is being taken care of and walked away. This place should be shut down.
