The August 2011 blizzard is NUTTER BUTTER cookie pieces and NUTTER BUTTER peanut butter creme filling blended with creamy vanilla softserve. As far as I know, this has never been attempted before.
And here's mine
(though the bright summer sun has pretty much washed this picture clean of any details.)
Well, that's a little better, and technically if you look REALLY close you can see the tiny specks of nutter butter cookie pieces that have been blended into oblivion (except that rogue chunk at 7 o'clock). The color is also just a shade off-white, but do not fear, this blizzard whallops you with the fantastic taste of peanut butter. That's right, I love this blizzard! It's fantastic, and if you enjoy peanut butter, you need to pick one of these up immediately.
Let me describe it a little better for you. Have you had a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup blizzard? You know how the pb filling spreads out and gives that great, gritty, peanut buttery texture to the treat? This blizzard is that pb goodness spread out to obliterated perfection. Honestly, for pb lovers, it's just that good. In fact, I'm tempted to go back and ask for it with a chocolate base on miracle treat day (which is coming up next Thursday, August 11th). No, no, that's not 100% true. I want to go back and ask for it with a chocolate base... AND a scoop of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups in it.
Now I believe they make this treat by adding a peanut butter creme filling (to flavor the base) and then seperate nutter butter cookie wafers to add a nice crunch to the whole thing. So this is beyond some simple cookie 'n creams creation, this is the total package with a complete flavor that I really enjoyed. I'll be shocked if I don't pick up at least one more of these before the month is done. Awesome job DQ! Thank you for giving peanut butter some much needed love on your menu.
Verdict? PB Excellence
Buy Again? Oh Yeah!

(his better photos should definitely sell you on this one)
Adam from GrubGrade loves it too!
Update: Do not try it with the chocolate base! The chocolate masks the awesomeness of the nutter butters and you will not be impressed. This blizzard is perfect just the way it is!
