Here's what it should look like....
I take my first bites and while it's not bad, it's not H-D peppermint bark. The bar has been raised very high, and a treat with minimal peppermint pieces just isn't going to cut it right now. It was the day after Christmas and I was ready for my taste buds to be wrapped in a warm, minty mess, but the mint is just so so. It's a classic case of DQ not being consistent with their treats.
A little further down and things are looking a little more promising.
I finished my somewhat minty blizzard and headed off to the grocery store with daughter (she had wisely gone with an Oreo blizzard). Strangely enough, what do we see at Market Basket?
As we headed home with our pizza and groceries, I had a little more time to reflect on my blizzard.... nope, still not impressed. Had it been well made, and had I not had the H-D peppermint bark, then I would probably give this blizzard a passing grade. However, in yesterday's scenario, the candy cane chill blizzard is a bust for me. Maybe I will try it again next year, but for now, I'm good.
Verdict? A lackluster blizzard (QC needed!)
Buy Again? Nah
