Star Spangled Blizzard – Dairy Queen QUICK REVIEW

Star Spangled Blizzard

If I had founded the U.S., our colors would probably represent cherry syrup, vanilla ice cream, and blue rock sugar.

Dairy Queen hates dinosaurs. Last month’s delicious Jurassic Chomp celebrates the only movie that’s made my wife cry in theaters, “Fallen Kingdom.” While I don’t find the dino’s demise as tear jerking as she does, they certainly don’t hold back. On it’s own, one can argue it’s just a movie tie in. But by following up with the limited time Star Spangled Blizzard, there can be no other explanation. Think about it. A star is violently thrust into a vanilla sky, its scattered debris obscuring the frozen land beneath that has run red with “cherry.” It even comes in a Jurassic World cup, and What’s more it tastes like dino doo, doo!

I bet you’ll never look at the Death Star the same way again.


You can find out more in my review over at The Impulsive Buy or read about it’s better half, the Firework Oreo Blizzard.

Neither treat have you screaming “must go faster?” Head as the pterodactyl flys over to the Summer Blizzard Menu links! (more…)

Oreo Firework Blizzard QUICK REVIEW Dairy Queen

Is that a firework in your ice cream or are you just happy to see me?

This is the first review that almost killed me. I didn’t realize the fireworks in DQ’s new Oreo Firework Blizzard also come with an adult supervision warning. No, it isn’t because the flavor is “mind blowing” (although spoiler alert, it’s good). You can find out why over at The Impulsive Buy. After all, it’s the least one can do after I put my life on the line. But don’t stop there, because there’s also the limited quantity Star Spangled Blizzard is out now. Actually, do stop there because that thing @#%$@#% sucks.

If you need more good Blizzards in your life, you can read about some of the fantastic choices on the Summer Blizzard menu!



Quick Review: Dairy Queen S’mores Blizzard

There’s graham in them thar’ blizzards!

If you are anything like me and your s’more making often devolves from this:

If he had a DQ S’mores Blizzard on the end of that stick he’d be a lot happier.


to something a little more like thisthis:

in the blink of a flaming marshmallow, DQ has you covered.  While the Summer Berry Cheesecake didn’t make me cheese, I did cotton to the Cotton Candy. I’m also chomping to sink my teeth into the phenomenal Jurassic Comp Blizzard again, but the returning S’mores is the May Blizzard of the Month (and Summer Blizzard Menu treat) has me begging for s’more too. Marshmallow filled chocolates and graham pieces in a rarely seen graham flavored ice cream base are grahamtastic. I have a hard time picturing how one could better capture the essence of a s’more in ice cream form. Find out s’more (sorry, I’ll stop now) about Santa’s camp(ice?) treat over at The Impulsive Buy.

Dairy Queen Summer Blizzard Menu

I really can’t complain about my job. There are few things better than being a staff writer whose job description is “write funny stuff about new Dairy Queen ice cream.” Well, in my case the funny is optional. Still, Dairy Queen must love me because they are making my job even more dairy delightful with their Summery Blizzard Menu. I sacrificed my 6 pack to bring you a 4-pack of reviews. You can find the complete reviews over at The Impulsive Buy.

Jurassic Chomp: Not surprisingly fantastic in my book as 3 of my packs are, in fact, made of peanut butter, chocolate, and ice cream.

The only dud among the group is the Summer Berry Cheesecake, and it’s still decent.

At least its berry pretty


The Cotton Candy sucker punches your sweet tooth.

Do they make cotton vegetables…

Jurassic Chomp packs enough peanut butter and chocolate to choke a PMS’ing T-Rex.

S’mores will spare more than one marshmellon from burned burned at the stick this summer.

In closing, I love my job.

Quick Review: Baskin-Robbins Oreo’N Caramel

Oreo'N Caramel Baskin-Robbin's Ice CreamKeep your “care-a-mel” out of my “karmul.” This is how one ends up with a sore back and told one can keep certain things out of certain other things. Enough stupid sayings such as that spew out of my mouth that I should consider running for president in 2021. Fortunately, I’ll have some tasty dulce de leche meets cookies and cream to comfort me this March. You can find my quick review of Baskin-Robbin’s Oreo’n Caramel Ice Cream over at The Impulsive Buy
