So here is the official view.
And here's my treat from Monday!
I know the pictures never match up, but I think mine technically looks better. Notice theirs has just big chunks and an off-white base because of the caramel swirl. Yes it's tasty looking, but notice in mine how the brownie bits (and some pecan shell) have been blended into oblivion. That can be a bad thing, but here it's not. Just like the Reese's blizzard, this overblending helps spread the flavor and make ever bite enjoyable. They must blend up a bunch of the brownies first and then they throw in a small second group of them with a bunch of pecans for a mild blending so that they stay whole.
Yes, that's right, the pecans stay whole and they add a wonderful soft crunch to every bite. I got at least one if not 2 or 3 in every scoopful. I always forget what a mild flavor pecans have, or how soft they are, but it totally works in softserve. The funny thing is that this should be the Pecan Brownie Blizzard with Turtles... no wait, that's not right. My point is the Pecans are numero uno here, they are backed up by an understated brownie flavor, and then there is a hint of sweet caramel to tie it all together. This tastes like a pecan brownie, and that's a good thing.
Mmmmmm, all gone!
(I really wanted to show off the lingering brownie bits)
I liked this blizzard, I really did. I saw some comments of people thinking it was tame or boring, but apparently they've never had nuts in their brownies. I'm 90% sure we use to have pecan brownies as kids and they were awesome. That cool combo is captured here and I enjoyed every scoop. It wasn't too sweet, too crunchy, too chewy, just a nice homage to a different kind of brownie.
I liked this one so much, I went back on Tuesday to try it in chocolate.
Verdict? Good - much more flavorful in vanilla
