DQ Blizzard Battle 2014
and the Nosh Show Episode 38

Hello Nosh Show listeners! Things are a little backed up here so I'm going to combine two announcements in this post. First, have you seen DQBlizzardBattle.com yet? Over labor day weekend, I let you know that there was a tasty new Apple blizzard in town (review here) and that the tasty pumpkin pie blizzard was back early. Little did I know that it was actually going to be this big September event going on. DQ's PR firm contacted me last week and offered to send the awesome gift pack pictured below (plus two $5 gift cards to retry the blizzards). I've put some serious thought in to this and I'm still not sure which side to pick. I don't know if I should #VotePumpkin or #VoteApple. I've always loved the pumpkin blizzard, but the apple pie blizzard really hit the spot.... ok, I'm probably leaning towards pumpkin. I need to get to DQ and try them one more time to be sure. Thanks again to DQ for the stuff, my son has been having a blast with all of it. Remember, you only have until the end of September to try the new apple pie blizzard. Now get to the website and vote!

Ok, I went to DQ and got a mini of each. Apple is good, but Pumpkin is great. #VotePumpkin!



Nosh Show Episode 38 is also available for all your iTunes or MP3 listening pleasure. We've got several follow up items, waffles, pretzels, and cereal for nosh or not, and then our main topic takes us behind the scenes of our blogs once again. It's been awhile since we did a segment like that and it's always fun talking fans, trolls, and just living the blogger life. We even delve in to how many servings a container should be. Now this is all in general, but a super premium pint needs to be at least two servings, preferably 3 servings. If it's really good (or really fattening), you might want to savor it down to four servings. Trust me, I get wanting to just down the whole thing, especially if I'm bored or frustrated or want to freeze out a headache, but it's all about balance. Hey, if all else fails, just remind yourself how good the second half of the pint will taste tomorrow when you finish it. [Note: If you have a quart of mainstream ice cream (one with less fat and calories then a super premium ice cream), then it's ok to have bigger servings.]

Alright, enough rambling, it's resting time. Have a good week everyone!

Out of curiosity, have you ever had any success freezing soft serve style ice cream or blizzards and then eating them later??

@Morgan: actually my old work tried this a few times, and it didnt go well. You can either eat it frozen with a weird texture, or you can try to let it melt but then it will get weird in a different way, I have an example here http://www.onsecondscoop.com/2013/10/dumb-question-can-you-freeze-milkshake.html
