Did you hear about the "blizzards" taking over the Sioux Empire on Thursday, July 27th? Specifically, one South Dakota town just couldn't control the power of the blizzards. Luckily, these wild blizzards benefited local kiddos.

The Annual Miracle Treat Day is all about helping local kids fight cancer as well as providing necessary assistance for their families.  These sweet blizzards alone help the kids and families of the Sanford Children's Miracle Network with needs such as specialized equipment, Child Life and Spiritual Care programs, and lodging expenses.

Historically, the Dairy Queen establishment in Madison has always sold the most blizzards in South Dakota on Miracle Treat Day. This year is no exception. The Madison Dairy Queen sold over 30,000 blizzards on Miracle Treat Day!

The Madison Dairy Queen shared the exciting news on its Facebook page with its ice cream lovers! The grand total for the day was 32,587 blizzards! Last year, this single Dairy Queen in South Dakota sold 32,490 blizzards. So that means they broke last year's record! Wow! Oh...and one more fun fact: The Madison Dairy Queen has sold well-over 550,000 blizzards since Miracle Treat Day began in 2006. Madison residents sure do have a major sweet tooth!

Helping out these awesome kids during the annual Miracle Treat Day is always easy and delicious. This is just one of many great ways to support the Sanford Children's Miracle Network. Calories don't count when you're helping kids! Thank you for eating delicious ice cream for the kids!

Don't forget! Our annual Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon is right around the corner. The two-day event begins on Thursday, September 28th and continues through Friday, September 29th. All proceeds from the Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon directly support the local kiddos and their families from the Sanford Children's Miracle Network.

7 Sucky Foods We Eat In South Dakota

If you live in South Dakota you may have chocked down some of these awful foods. I'd have to be on the verge of starvation before I'd ever try them...again.

The Best Truck Stop Food in South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota

One of the best parts of any road trip is a stop at a truck stop. Whether you call them, travel centers, convenience stores, or just a gas stations; these oases are so interesting and fun.

In the middle of nowhere, you find the island of pavement, pumps, and people; getting gas, some rest, and fuel for themselves, AKA some classic truck stop food.

I'm partial to a Love's Truck Stop. They are usually big and well-managed. And as a connoisseur of gas-station coffee, Love's is one of the best. Plus, they have some delicious hot dogs.

I'm not the only one that enjoys a stop at a truck stop for good eats. The food blog LoveFood.com dug through user reviews to find the best truck stop food in each state.
