Official View: Strawberry Shortcake Blizzard
Strawberry topping and shortcake pieces blended with creamy vanilla soft serve
Ugggg, I don't see any shortcake pieces.
I take my first bite.... and I'm disappointed. I take a few more bites and there is something wrong with my blizzard. It tastes... muted... muddled... watered down. The strawberry flavor isn't popping like it should. The strawberry flavor is there, but there is something else here that is taking the fun out of the flavor profile. Hmmm, the shortcake pieces are blended in to oblivion and I'm wondering if somehow the little bits of cake everywhere are messing with my blizzard.
Here, let's take a closer look. Do you see the tiny cake pieces everywhere? Ok, the photo doesn't show them very well, but they are there. I only got two "whole" cake bits, one was a soggy pea size bit and the other was closer to full size, but even the big one was kind of spongy and flavorless. Rather than their typical dense cake bits, they've tried going with something lighter and more airy, but they're no match for the blizzard blenders. I think they meant well, but the execution has failed, at least in my case.
Now I'm not going to say you should avoid this one, but if you try it, please let us know how it goes. I'm hoping several of you will say that mine is a fluke and then I can go back and get a proper blizzard. If most of you wind up agreeing with me though, then shame on DQ.
Buy Again? I might in hopes of a better sample
