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!
