Oh DQ, you had one job to do, ONE JOB! All you had to do was take one of your best blizzards and add a little something extra to the flavor profile. This should have been a grand slam. Note: if you want to skip January's first scoop rant, scroll to the bottom for July's second scoop.
DQ Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Pie Blizzard
Peanut butter cups and crunchy graham pie crust blended with creamy vanilla soft serve
Sounds awesome doesn't it? I mean, the Reese's blizzard has always been one of my favorites and was my go to blizzard for many years before I got in the habit of eating the blizzard of the month instead. It's just so good and so rich and it almost rarely gets made wrong. Ohhh the memories.
Sorry, but I'm ticked. There's only one DQ open right now which means I had to go out of my way tonight to try a blizzard which should have been epic... and maybe it is, if it's made right, but come on already, there was no need for this to happen. Not cool DQ, not cool at all.
On Second Scoop: It's July and it's high time I give this one a second chance. The server hands me my blizzard with a smile and I happily head to the car to enjoy my lunchtime dessert. It is a thing of beauty, isn't it? I can see both pb cup and graham this time!
Woohoo! I dont even need to eat it, I'll just stare at it for awhile.... Ok, it tastes good, plain and simple. I still wonder if they use less Reese's then the regular blizzard, or if maybe the graham and Reese's just cancel each other out a bit. See, peanut butter cup is the strongest flavor here, and then there is an underlying graham flavor. It's more like your brain goes "ahh, this seems more complex then usual". I'm not thinking pie in particular, but I like the combo even if the pb cup mutes out a lot of the graham. I would still like to see more whole graham chunks, but this was a definite improvement. Am I talking in circles? Probably, but anyway, when this one is made right, it is way more enjoyable and I would totally buy it again [and then be really ticked if they messed it up again because now I know how it should taste].
Verdict? if they get it right, it's enjoyable
Buy Again? Yup
