review), I can't help but be excited for this one. Strawberry blizzards are awesome, so I hope that fruity magic happens here too.
Alright, family in the car, long weekend, it's DQ time.
Let's start over.
Look, this isn't a bad blizzard, but my word is it boring. A think a small, select group of people will like this... and that's about it. It's just boring as can be. I wanted that spark that a strawberry blizzard has, or I wanted that full on pie vibe like the pumpkin pie blizzard, but this was just boring. I think if you really like lemon, you'll dig this, but everyone else wouldn't touch it with a ten foot poll. There's just nothing here for the non-lemon crowd.
The whipped topping was terrible today, could have sworn that I've gotten real whip cream before. It was useless against a lemon base that is strong and very straight forward. It's not some essence of lemon pie, it's a squirt of lemon flavoring that lacks a realistic buzz. Oh sure, technically, it still had that bit of bite if you got to much, but it's a lackluster lemon flavoring compared to all the other lemon treats I've had over the years. It mine as well have been a squirt of Country Time lemonade drink mix

The pie pieces are fine, and there were plenty of them, but what's the point? It's not really complimenting anything here. What a bore.... I started wishing I had asked for Oreos in it just to spice things up.
tripleberry brownie blizzard)
back in March... except theirs comes in cheesecake and caramel versions! (this info was more exciting before I actually tried the blizzard)
Buy Again? No
Update: After I posted this, Nick suggested I take a look at the ingredients. Lemonade Concentrate: sweeteners (high fructose corn syrup, sugar), water, concentrated lemon juice, natural flavors. Yup, that's what I tasted! You know what's even scarier though? Whipped Topping: General label declaration, ingredients may vary by supplier. Water, high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil, contains less than 2% of the following: sodium caseinate (a milk derivative), dextrose, artificial flavor, polysorbate 60, sorbitan monostearate, xanthan gum, guar gum, colored turmeric and annatto extracts. Gross. I want real whip cream!!
