Dairy Queen Chips Ahoy! Blizzard
Chips Ahoy!® chocolate chip cookies, chocolaty topping, and choco chunks

And here's my underwhelming treat... it's been overblended, hasn't it?
Sorry, but this blizzard has failed me today. I definitely had my doubts when I saw this on the blizzard calendar. I made a thousand chips ahoy sundaes as a kid, so it's not like I'm not a fan boy, but I just wasn't sure it could transition to this medium. There's just not enough flavor there to start with. You add chips ahoy to a sundae for crunch and not so much for flavor, and this proved that today. The whole time I kept thinking "What would I add to make this better?"
Or maybe I just got a mini's worth of mix-ins in my small sized blizzard.... as always, please share your own experiences so we can see if this is a fluke or a trend.
Note: I've seen pics of blizzards that look 100x better then mine. Curse your inconsistancy DQ! --- I will try this one again... really... I mean it.... sooner or later!
August 30th Update: We did finally make it back to DQ, but this is actually my daughter's blizzard because I wound up going with the new Apple Pie blizzard. At least hers looks better then mind did, though she wasn't impressed... she said the commercial made it sound way tastier than it was. I asked her what was wrong, and to my surprise, she goes "too many chocolate chips". I'll take that to me "not well balanced".
Buy Again? nope
