[New for 2015] Now if I read the press statement right, DQ says that this official Fanniversary blizzard has tested better than any other monthly blizzard. That is one very bold claim, but....
Whoa, wait, my DQ Grill and Chill is offering brand new Hot Desserts a la Mode? Fudge Stuffed Cookie? Apple Tart (my review here)? Triple Chocolate Brownie? Oh man, why must they torment me? Ahhh, no matter, I came for the blizzard and that's what I'm getting!
Dairy Queen Salted Caramel Truffle Blizzard
Salted Caramel Truffles, this Blizzard treat also packs buttery toffee pieces,
rich cocoa fudge, and choco chunks, all blended with creamy vanilla soft serve
Ok, there are just two points I need to make about this blizzard.
How quickly/eloquently I make them is a whole other matter.
Two: What in the bloody blue blazes does this have to do with salted caramel truffles? Yes, I get that there are physically truffles in here, but they are just set pieces for the toffee. I mean, good luck tasting the caramel over the toffee. Someone commented on the news post that she returned her blizzard because it tasted nothing like caramel. Think about every salted caramel truffle treat you've ever eaten. Did you ever go "mmmmm, this tastes like toffee!" because I know I never have.
So those are my points, an excellent blizzard with the totally wrong name. If this was a Ben & Jerry's flavor, it would have been called Toffee Truffle Tango or something else even funner to say. The blizzard is chuck full of munching crunching fun.... just don't get your heart set on the whole caramel thing.
Buy Again? yup
*Note: If you look at the menu, you'll notice a disclaimer. See, your blizzard is supposed to be served upside down or it's free, and despite being told this by two different DQ reps, I still forgot to call them out on it when they served it right side up ---- Update: A PR rep is going to send a gift since they forgot --- Update2: Just got a nice gift card to test out many more upside down blizzards, THANKS DQ!!
