Dairy Queen’s Snickers Blizzard Is Making a Comeback

It’s back by popular demand!

Dairy Queen already wowed us once this summer by releasing two (!) Reese’s Blizzards. Even though Dairy Queen’s menu right now is made for hot days, the chain has at least one more surprise. This August, Dairy Queen is bringing back the beloved Snickers Blizzard, and we can’t wait for the ice cream goodness.

Snickers Blizzard Is BACK!

Dairy Queen announced on Twitter that the Snickers Blizzard would return because customers kept asking about it. This popular Blizzard Treat dropped off the menu back in 2016, much to the disappointment of fans everywhere. But people sent so many messages to Dairy Queen—the Snickers Blizzard is the chain’s most-requested treat—that it was time for a triumphant return.

What’s not to adore about this Blizzard, honestly? It combines smooth vanilla soft serve with rich chocolate sauce and pieces of Snickers bars. The bit of crunch from the peanuts and gooey-ness of the caramel really make this Blizzard extra special. You get a variety of textures and sweet-and-salty flavors dancing around in every spoonful. Perfect for a hot August day!

See how much the original Blizzard cost in 1985.

What Else Is New at DQ?

Besides the return of the Snickers Blizzard, Dairy Queen is mixing up other fresh flavors. It seems that a Peanut Butter Pie Blizzard will also be joining the Snickers Blizzard as the August Treat of the Month.

 What exactly is a Peanut Butter Pie Blizzard? Well, it’s like a Snickers Blizzard… with an extra twist! The Peanut Butter Pie Blizzard starts with Dairy Queen’s classic vanilla soft serve. Just add some peanut butter, graham cracker and Snickers pieces to create this delicious treat.

We’ll be making two trips to Dairy Queen to try both Blizzards. Don’t have a DQ in your neighborhood? Don’t worry, you can whip up this frosty peanut butter pieto tide you over.

Black Sesame Ice Cream Might Cause You to Poop Grey

black-sesame-ice-cream-feature

Most of us associate the color grey with dreary London skies, mystery mush at the cafeteria and that unfortunate book, 50 Shades of . . . I won’t even go there. The thought of dusky food rarely strikes us as appetizing, and the majority prefers their food to be pink, plush and vibrant. That is, until this photo of black sesame ice cream was spotted on Reddit a few days ago and flaming f*ck balls, does it look cool.

According to a few folks on Reddit, this unique treat can be found at nearly any Asian supermarket. Some describe the flavor as similar to “black currant” or “smoky vanilla,” while others simply compare the taste to “death” (whatever that means). I imagine black sesame ice cream to be more savory than sweet, since sesame itself carries a mild nutty flavor, as some Redditors have noted.

For those concerned about the shade of their bathroom leavings, do be warned that eating this grey-colored treat may give you “weird poop the next day,” as one Redditor so eloquently put it. This last bit hardly discourages us. If anything, our interest is only further piqued.
