The good news is that I like it. When I tried Gile's Butter Pecan Frozen Custard, I was dismayed that the salty pecan flavor was overriding everything. Well, the DQ pecans are salty, but since the base is still vanilla, their intense flavor is brought down a notch. The pecan flavor is still strong, as is that underlying salty vibe, but not so much as to ruin the harmony between salty snack and creamy soft serve.
How are the pie pieces? Nice, I just wish there were a few more. They are thin and have a graham cracker crust consistancy. They must have been added last because the pieces were still fairly large.
The caramel swirl? Ummm, there's a caramel swirl? Are you sure, because I didn't taste one. Maybe they forgot, or maybe I can't taste it, but I dont care, I'd rather have the whip cream anyway. Actually, let me put it this way. The wonder that is whip cream helps bring the pecans down another notch... shame there wasn't more whip cream!
So, is this for everyone? Probably not. Will pecan lovers love it? Yes! Will nut lovers like it? Yes! Will a squirrel try to steal it from you? Iunno, it depends on how much you taunt him with it I guess. This is another nice, fresh, unique blizzard. Nice job DQ.
