Dairy Queen’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie Blizzard is this month’s Blizzard of the Month. This flavor was last seen earlier this year in January, and features DQ soft serve, Reese’s peanut butter cups, and graham cracker pie crust pieces. I went with a small Blizzard for this review.
Although Dairy Queen has had this Blizzard on the menu in the past, this is my first time getting to try it. I’m a fan of Reese’s peanut butter cups, but for some reason I was never drawn to the idea of them being featured in a Blizzard. I think it was more because of the unoriginality of the idea as opposed to thinking it wouldn’t taste good. Boy am I glad I finally got out and tried this.
This Blizzard will satisfy peanut butter and Reese’s lovers alike. I’m not sure if it was more due to the cold temperatures, or the other ingredients present, but it felt less like eating Reese’s cups in ice cream and more like eating chocolate and peanut butter soft serve.
The Reese’s cups fare incredibly well in the freezing cold temperatures of the Blizzard. Unlike other candy mix-ins, Reese’s don’t become rock hard at ice cream temperatures. So what you end up getting here is a nice mix of softer chocolate and crunchier graham cracker pieces. This Blizzard encompasses all that makes a Blizzard a Blizzard: Cold, sweet, filled with candy, and texturally diverse.
Pretty much my only complaints about this Blizzard are that the Blizzard wasn’t mixed at the bottom of the cup and that the whipped cream did nothing for me. I’m a bit biased though, since I find whipped cream in general is more of a nuisance and waste of calories than anything.
Overall, Dairy Queen’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie Blizzard was delicious, and is now one of my favorite Blizzard flavors. I highly, highly recommend picking one up. I even find myself preferring it to the S’more’s Blizzard that I gave a very positive review on.
Pros: Can’t go wrong with Reese’s, the cold peanut butter flavor is divine
Cons: Scraped the whipped cream off the top, bottom 1/4 of the Blizzard was all vanilla soft serve.
