DQ Cotton Candy Oreo Blizzard

Have I ever told you that I'm psychic? Ok, ok, I don't actually believe that I am psychic, but I do have a knack for guessing the outcomes of things. Do I have proof? Well, on Sunday I decided to order a Cotton Candy Blizzard with Oreo. I posted it to instagram early Monday morning because I was so stoked about my creation...

(how to order: cotton candy blizzard with added Oreo)

It was absolutely delicious. I'm still thinking about it 33 hours later. I'm a big fan of the regular cotton candy blizzard and this took it up a notch. The original is fun but very sweet. The Oreo helps bring both balance and more cookie crunch. Seriously, what's not too love here? Ok, the aftertaste is still pretty potent (in terms of sweetness), but I adored every bite of my creation.

Back to my story: So what comes out Monday afternoon? The Zero Gravity Blizzard. It's Oreos plus cotton candy topping just like my version, but then they add "space inspired iridescent blue and black swirls and galaxy sprinkles". If you've ever wanted a blizzard to give you strangely colored bowel movements like the Halloween Whopper, then this is the blizzard for you!

Say you aren't scared off by the mass amounts of food coloring, then you have another question. Do the added swirls mean that this thing is even sweeter than a regular cotton candy blizzard? or do they back off the cotton candy flavor a bit to balance it out with the two new swirls?

Whatever the answers, I think I am sticking to my version. It was delicious and I'm still proud of my creativity, even if it was probably obvious to some. I tend to go to DQ once a month for the blizzard of the month, but I got inspired and I'm glad it worked out for me (and my insides). If you try my version or theirs, let me know how it goes.

Verdict?  delicious sugar rush
Buy Again?  yes!

Allergy note: peanut oil in the cotton candy topping
