My DQ Blizzard Bonanza! - Week 8

I know some people probably think I'm crazy for eating a Dairy Queen Blizzard when it's below freezing and looks like this outside...

Wintering in Nebraska is not for the sane. 

Well, if you've been reading this blog, then you know sanity isn't really on the menu.  Oh, and before you ask, yes I'll happily devour a bowl of chili in the heat of summer.  

To end 2017, I decided to try something extra fancy.  Even though I previously used my DQ VIP Card to get the Strawberry Cheesecake Blizzard, the clerk wasn't sure if I could order a Royal Blizzard.  Thankfully, I was given the Golden Spoon of approval, but now I wonder why i didn't get a Golden Spoon with my Strawberry Cheesecake.  When I ordered that delicious ice cream treat, I wasn't aware that it fell under the Royal category, so I didn't say Royal.  Hmm...I hope that Blizzard wasn't somehow  less than Royal since I didn't order it properly.

A Golden Spoon in Chocolate. 

The Royal Ultimate Choco Brownie Blizzard was good.  The chocolate ice cream was rich & creamy and the chunks of brownie and bits of chocolate were quite tasty.  However, it was the occasional swirl of what I assume was hot fudge that made this Blizzard truly Royal!

Thank you for reading my half-blind, ice cream words.

Freak Out, 

P.S.  In case you missed Week 7...


  1. Thanks for the "royal" tour of Blizzards, John. It was great to hear your take on these frozen treats. ...Anytime, even winter, is a great time for ice cream.

    1. You are welcome, Barry, and I agree!
      There is never a bad time for ice cream!
