The Triple Truffle Blizzard is Dairy Queen’s Blizzard of the Month for August and features fudge, caramel, and peanut butter truffles in vanilla soft serve. While advertised as blended with chocolate topping, apparently cocoa beans are in short supply because my Blizzard didn’t seem to contain any.
The feast begins with whole truffle pieces the size and shape of mini peanut butter cups. To get a feel for the flavors, I sampled each truffle flavor individually with ice cream before going for the ménage à truffle.
The only truffle that is not muted when eaten separately is the peanut butter variety. It is the best of the group (although I am a card carrying peanutbutteraholic), but it is quite salty and gritty. If that is not your idea of an enjoyable peanut butter experience, proceed with caution.
The caramel truffle is creamy and finishes with a deeper, burnt taste that is slightly reminiscent of coffee. The fudge truffle on the other hand can’t punch through the ice cream on its own despite a solid fudge flavor in the absence of competing elements.
While none of them will be mistaken for a premium quality candy, each are enjoyable in their own way. That said, when multiple pieces find their way onto your spoon the Triple Truffle becomes, dare I say, three times as good. The peanut butter and caramel play particularly well together while the fudge lends a needed chocolaty boost.
Overall, despite a reasonable level of mix-ins, there are not enough of them in quantity or quality to serve as the only unique element to the accompanying vanilla soft serve. I can’t help but wonder if the whole package would have worked better with the advertised chocolate topping component that I missed out on.
