Just Because: DQ’s Summer Blizzards

Rated by our resident Blizzard expert

By Marcello El-Semarani

Dairy Queen has recently come out with new Blizzard flavors. Five flavors to be exact. And just in time for the summer! I recently tried each Blizzard and will go into heavy detail about each one, while giving it a rating between one and 10.

Peanut Butter Puppy Chow

Dairy Queen’s Peanut Butter Puppy Chow flavor is a great combination of peanut butter and crunchy chocolate-covered Chex cereal. With every bite you take, you’ll experience the creamy and nutty taste of peanut butter blended perfectly with the perfect crunch of the cereal. The chocolate coating adds a layer of sweet and richness that complements the peanut butter flavor. This flavor is a true masterpiece for peanut butter lovers, offering a unique and enjoyable texture.
Rating: 8.2/10

Oreo Brookie

The Oreo Brookie flavor at Dairy Queen brings together the best of three things: chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and Oreo cookies. This perfect combination starts with a smooth and creamy ice cream, infused with chunks of chewy brownies, crunchy Oreo cookie pieces, and swirls of chocolate fudge. The chocolate chip cookie dough adds an extra layer of sweetness and texture. With each bite, you’ll experience a harmony of flavors and textures that blend amazingly, creating a delicious and comforting treat.

Dairy Queen’s S’mores is a flavor that is hard to mess up for me. It captures the idea of a traditional campfire snack, combining flavors of toasted marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers. As you bite into this blizzard, you’ll encounter swirls of marshmallow sauce, chocolate chunks, and crumbled graham cracker pieces. The combination of the smooth ice cream with the crunchy and sweet elements creates a perfect experience for me which also reminds me of cozy bonfires.

Cotton Candy

The one I was looking the least forward to, the cotton candy flavor at Dairy Queen is an interesting, but nostalgic treat. This flavor perfectly captures the light and fluffy essence of cotton candy. It features a vibrant blue and pink swirl of soft ice cream like the colorful cotton candy found at fairs and carnivals. The flavor is sweet and light just like the actual treat and is a great choice for those who love cotton candy. I, however, am not one of those people as its too sweet.
Rating: 6.4/10

Choco-Dipped Strawberry

Dairy Queen’s Choco-Dipped Strawberry flavor is a perfect blend of strawberries and rich chocolate. The smooth and creamy strawberry ice cream is packed with strawberry pieces, creating a refreshing and fruity taste. The chocolate coating adds a rich bite, exactly like biting into a chocolate covered strawberry. The contrast between the sweet and tangy strawberries and the creamy chocolate coating creates a perfect flavor combination that satisfied me.
Rating: 9.1/10

Dairy Queen’s new flavors offer a wide range of rich and delicious options. Whether you’re a fan of peanut butter, Oreo cookies, s’mores, cotton candy, or the combination of strawberries and chocolate, there’s a flavor for every person. I have hardly anything bad to say about these flavors except for cotton candy. My personal favorite out of this review is going to be S’mores.
