Review: Dairy Queen - Oreo and Snickers Blizzard

There aren't any fast food serving Dairy Queens in the southern California area as far as I know. However, there are Dairy Queens at the malls that only serve their frozen Treats including their trademark Blizzard of which I tried the Snickers Blizzard and Oreo Blizzard pictured above.

Being that it was at the mall, I'm assuming there was a slight price premium, at $4.32 for a 16-ounce medium (I believe the normal price is around $3.50).

Blizzards are simply thick soft serve ice cream blended with your choice of a topping. My favorite of the two was the Oreos Blizzard. It tasted like cookies and cream ice cream but with the added benefit of crunchy instead of soggy Oreo cookies .

The Snickers Blizzard wasn't as good, a bit too sweet. Also, the Snicker bits were too frozen which made for very hard chewing and caramel sticking to my teeth.

16-ounces is a bit too much for me to eat, even with sharing with the sibs, I really should have just went with the 12-ounce small but I still think that is more than I want.  I'm definitely looking forward to the mini size coming in August.

  1. Your review was right on the money! Including the price point! I'm not sure where in SoCal you are but here are two locations;

    25882 EL PASEO
    CA 92691-6901

    27782 ALISO CREEK RD
    CA 92656-3822

    There is also a 3rd location (unless it's closed) off Oso Parkway - same area as Best Buy! Actually you have to pass the DQ to get to Best Buy!

    And I also think the mini is a great idea!

  2. Did you finish both of them?
