The Blizzard!

Twenty eight years ago, Dairy Queen introduced the Blizzard! It took me 28 years to finally try it!  Why you might ask did it take me so long?  There is a simple and logical reason, I am a person of tradition.  I grew up on Carvel and have always loved soft serve ice cream but always order the same thing every time!

Living in Massachusetts, I don’t have a local Carvel store nearby but I know where the Dairy Queen stores are located!  As a  soft serve ice cream junkie, I will always stop in if they are open and order the usual which is a child size chocolate dipped cone; child size since it is truly the perfect size and I never feel guilty for my indulgence!

When I was at another local ice cream store recently I noticed that they were now offering their version of a Blizzard. I realized I have never tried it before. It was long overdue that I try a Blizzard. Therefore I made a point to go to the local DQ, 20 minutes away and finally get my hands around a Blizzard.

A Blizzard is where you pick from soft serve and toppings and it magically, ok mechanically blends everything together. The Blizzard is put into a cup served with a spoon and voila you have a Blizzard! Soft serve and “treats” expertly blending to form the perfect ration of “treats” to soft serve in each bite!

What a variety of treats you can have!  I asked which the most popular Blizzards were and I was told Oreo and candy choices were the most popular.  I chose a coffee blizzard with heath bar!  I was surprised they had coffee soft serve, never had it at DQ before so I went with it!

Quickly the Blizzard was before me!  I truly enjoyed every bite until I came home and read the calorie content of a small Blizzard.  Now I realize why I unknowingly pick a child sized chocolate dipped soft serve cone!

Will I go for another Blizzard?  Of course I will but for now I will stick with my child sized chocolate dipped cone! I will be very happy! Let us know what is your favorite Blizzard!
