HATE IT! Dairy Queen's Reese's Blizzard

FINALLY, I got to indulge in the holy grail of Dairy Queen Blizzards, the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard. Why the holy grail reference? Well, DQ Canada announced this Bliz as the special of the month in November - but I only discovered its existence back in early December. I *adore* the collision of chocolate & peanut butter...in cookies, chocolate bars! I've written in glorious rapture about how much I idolize the guest star appearance of said peanut butter cups in a Chocolate X-treme Blizzard. Dangerously delicious heaven in a waxy paper cup! So imagine my exaltation when I found this Blizzard still on the menu here. The calendar may shout "January" & we've just taken baby steps into the new year, but for DQ Canada, the November Blizzard of the Month still rules. Or does it?

It's with great dissatisfaction & a sense of extreme disappointment that I must admit this soft-serve specialty is...nasty! It's bland, gritty and just not up to my over-wrought expectations. There's so little chocolate affixed to these baby peanut butter cuplets that the choco-peanut infusion doesn't work. You really do need the chocolate overload of a Chocolate X-treme, or the hall-of-fame worthy Brownie Batter Blizzard to make the peanut butter exercise your taste buds properly. After all that time of waiting for an introduction to this match made in sweet heaven, the meeting was so anti-climactic. Why this "treat" is still on the menu here, I have no clue, but take my advice and avoid at all costs. Meanwhile our US counterparts have a new Blizzard on the sked for January. Lucky ducks, meet the Turtle Oreo Blizzard. Yep, you read correctly....a marriage of Oreo cookies, creamy caramel, pecans and DQ's famed soft serve. Enjoy while us Canucks starve ourselves until February when hopefully our DQ will get with the program and unveil a new Blizzard of the Month, instead of some late Fall bottom of the barrel re-run.

Well, well, well. What appears in my inbox today but an email from Dairy Queen Canada stating that there IS a new Blizzard for January.

It's the same as the US this time around - Turtle Blizzard. About time!
