Who couldn't use a break right now with a Dairy Queen Blizzard? It was a great day at the station when our Digital Guru Shannon summoned us to a meeting. Usually, I am not all that excited about a late afternoon meeting but this one was going to be different. This one was going to include Dairy Queen.

She ran to Dairy Queen here in Amarillo and grabbed us each our own mini Blizzard. We got one of each new flavor. There are five new fall flavors.

  • The new Caramel Apple Pie Blizzard is made with vanilla soft-serve and blended with pieces of real apple pie. Of course, the blizzard would not be complete without the whipped cream topping and dash of nutmeg.
  • Oreo Mocha Fudge Blizzard
  • Choco-dipped Strawberry Blizzard
  • Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Blizzard
  • Brownie Dough Blizzard

Let me tell you that at first I was disappointed that the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard was not in this mix. But good news, this flavor is on the menu this year.

I started off with the featured Blizzard, the Caramel Apple Pie Blizzard. Now it doesn't matter if you say Car-mel or Care-a-mel. It is all delicious. You can taste the apple pie in it with the chunks of apple.

I moved on to the Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Blizzard. Who doesn't love a good snickerdoodle? You can taste the cinnamon in that one. So good. Be ready for a sugar rush with this one.

The next one I tried would have to be one of my favorites out of the group. The Brownie Dough Blizzard. You had me at brownie. What girl doesn't love chocolate? Oh, and chunks of brownie mixed in their vanilla soft serve. Yes, please!

The next one I tried I really liked also. The Choco-Dipped Strawberry Blizzard, again, you had me at chocolate. This one offers fudge chunks and real strawberries. It was pretty dang good.

The final one I tried was the Oreo Mocha Fudge Blizzard. I will be honest, I really didn't think I would like it. I am not a girl who drinks ANY coffee in the morning. I know. How can I get up at 4 am and NOT drink any coffee? But I don't. So I wasn't sure what I would think. BUT This non-coffee drinker really loved the taste of this. There are Oreos, there is chocolate fudge chunks, and coffee all blended in vanilla soft serve. YUM!

You can get these new fall flavors at any local dairy queen here in Amarillo. It's a special treat for loved ones. I miss the days when my daughter and I would jump in the car and head down the street just for a blizzard. We still get those times but now I have to wait until she makes a trip from Dallas to see me.
