Here's the official shot of the Choco Mint Brownie Blizzard Treat and it's new for 2012.
It's "Cool mint, chewy brownie pieces and choco chunks blended with creamy vanilla soft serve".
And here's mine.
I tried several photos but none of them really showed up the faint mint coloring of my treat. Actually, it's probably better this way because the faint coloring reflects the mild nature of the mint flavoring. Now we all know blizzards can vary greatly, but for me, the biggest star was the brownies. They are big, chewy, and in every single bite. In fact, I had one scoopful that had four brownie bites!
Now I went into this blizzard expecting something decent but deep down hoping for a miracle, well, I was half right. It's neat like the Mint Oreo Blizzard and the Thin Mint Blizzard, but I do wish it had more mint flavor while also wishing the brownie bits had blended apart more. I guess I'm looking for a more uniform flavor, that's all. It was nice, but it just felt a little unrewarding.... or maybe I'm just stuck on a peppermint kick.
So, it's a fine blizzard and I'm glad I got to try it, I just... iunno, I guess I'm just too picky some days.
Verdict? liked it, didnt love it
Buy Again? Once a year sounds about right
