Guess what? Third time's a charm when it comes to the Chocolate Candy Shop blizzard which is assorted mini chocolates blended with dark, decadent cocoa fudge and creamy vanilla soft serve. The first time I tried to pick one up, the delivery truck was "messed up" because of the holiday. On the second try, they ran out of candy bits over the weekend because apparently everyone wanted to "'Leap into the unknown". And then, finally on this fine Friday the 13th, I got my hands on this new blizzard for lunch.
Mmmmm, I do love my blizzard lunches.
Oh boy, new cup design! That's good because I was kind of getting sick of the old cups, it seems like they haven't changed them in forever. I know it doesn't effect the taste... or does it?
After looking at my treat basking in the warm summer sun, are you wondering if I decided to go with chocolate softserve instead of vanilla? Well, I didn't actually. The "dark, decadent, cocoa fudge" has been almost completely blended with my quickly melting softserve.
I kept scooping up the little hazelnut cubes over and over again and this is a definite plus.
They're tasty and have magically held up through the blending process.
Ok, technically I can't be sure they were all hazelnut, but then I found....
Ok, I know I'm a being a little random with the pictures here, but what I'm trying to visually drive at is the fact that this is a respectable new blizzard. It's not earth shattering like a nutter butter blizzard, but it's got a nice middle of the road chocolate flavor, chunks that are fun to bite, and then you are left with a very pleasant hazelnut aftertaste. I really felt like I had just finished a nice cold box of truffles when I was done. What more could I ask for?
Verdict? Tasty and mildly different
Buy Again? yeah
