My DQ Blizzard Bonanza! - Week 14

Now it's time for a Freakboy Confession.

I have never ate a Heath candy bar.  I don't know why, I just haven't.  Probably the tasty lure of a Reese's or a Kit Kat has kept me from a Heath.  

I knew in advance that I was going to order the Heath Blizzard for 14, but that left me with a dessert dilemma.  Should I try a Heath candy bar before trying the Blizzard?  I wasn't sure what I should do, until I recalled a similar dilemma I experienced with a television series.

A few years ago there was an episode of The Big Bang Theory I was curious to see.  Brent Spiner was the guest star, so my Star Trek geek senses were tingling!  This left me with the television dilemma. 

I had never watched The Big Bang Theory because, quite frankly, the commercials did not appeal to this geek-freak in the slightest.  I was torn as to whether or not I should catch a regular episode, so I could get a feel for the series, before watching the Brent Spiner episode.  I decided I should, which was a massive mistake. 

David from Roseanne was talking to Blossom from Blossom and the laugh track must have been set on "drunk" because it was super loud and super annoying!  Every little twitch of Blossom's face set off wild laughter, which sounded canned to me.  If that series is filmed before a live studio audience, then alcohol must be flowing freely or the network pays a pretty penny for people to laugh like patients in an 1880's asylum.  Needless to say, I couldn't finish that episode and never watched the Brent Spiner one.  I suspect I missed absolutely nothing.  

(Close-up: my eye twitching from annoyance)  
(Cue: uproariously fake-sounding laughter)

Thankfully I learned from my massive television mistake and ordered the Heath Blizzard without trying the candy bar.

I think the dessert clerk grabbed the wrong Blizzard cup. 

The Heath Blizzard was very delicious!  The flavor made me think of peanut brittle with chocolate that had been thoroughly blended into creamy vanilla ice cream.  Honestly, I enjoyed the tasty sensation so much that I don't want to try the Heath candy bar on its own.  I'll just stick with the Blizzard! 

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

Freak Out,

  1. Glad that you liked the Heath Bar Blizzard .. and don’t try the Candy Bar ... You will be disappointed. I’ve had both, and after the Blizzard, the Candy Bar alone just doesn’t cut it! Thanks for Sharing!!
