What can I say, I'm a sucker for DQ. My old job was about 2 minutes from a DQ and I've been an addict ever since. It started off simple with the hot dog special chased by a chocolate sundae, but eventually I became a Blizzard addict who tries hard to test every blizzard.
side note: for those who don't know, most DQs close in New England during the wintertime due to low demand. April is when they open back up.
So my first trip to DQ in 2008, and this blizzard looks to be one of the best ever. I was excited, plunked down my $3.35 and dug in. After a few bites I was hooked, this was one good Blizzard, well mixed, brownie chunks and chocolate peanuts hitting the spot. I ate about half and headed back to work. On the way, an awful thing happened... a bad aftertaste.... ewwww.... tastes like artificial sweetener. Now I remember, frozen DQ brownies aren't that good. While the initial blizzard experience was enjoyable, in the end, it was regrettable. I even wrote to DQ asking if there were any artificial sweeteners in the blizzard, but they said no......so what in the world is that aftertaste?
