DQ Apple Pie Blizzard
Apparently the "Big Apple Blizzard" went over well in NYC because this one seems to be along the same lines. It's vanilla soft serve, apple chunks, pie crust pieces, and a healthy sprinkling of cinnamon (and sugar?) on top.
Don't let the plain looks fool you.
Ok, does everyone remember what I love about strawberry blizzards? or even the pumpkin pie blizzard? It's that strong, fresh, fruity taste! That "wow I can't believe I have this taste in my blizzard" type moment. Yeah, that's what we have here. My wife was instantly in love with this one and I know why. They've taken that sweet, sweet excellence of a ice cold apple pie and shoved it in to this blizzard. There is just a ton of flavor and it all feels perfectly natural. [If you've ever had the cinnamon apples from Boston Market, then there's a good chance you'll be thinking about them the whole time you eat this blizzard].
This blizzard has skipped the traditional sugary graham crust for what I can only call cinnamon toast crunch's little brother. They are thin, crunchy, and I wouldn't have minded a few more of them [but then again, I'm addicted to crunching]. You also get some very small apple chunks in your blizzard. They are too small to be icy or annoying, instead they just kind of keep things fun and interesting. To be honest, I was eating so fast that I almost missed them, but my wife got a ton of them and made sure I stopped long enough to notice them.
So there you have my first
On Second Scoop: So DQ sent me a gift card (and some cool gifts) so I would weigh in on their 2014 Blizzard Battle. I thought it would be pretty close, but I had kind of forgotton how awesome the pumpkin blizzard is. The apple flavor is nice, but the pumpkin is perfect. The apple graham bits are fine, but the pumpkin pie pieces are superb. You're neat apple, but I gotta say, #VotePumpkin!
