Over 100 million Blizzards Sold
This ice cream treat was first created in 1985. Other chains have tried to put their own spin on this frosty treat, but it was the DQ that first originated this sublime dessert. These soft-serve ice cream treats are so thick that they are turned upside down just to show you how thick your Blizzard is! Favorite flavors are Reeses Pieces, Butterfinger, Oreo, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and M&M’s.
What goes in a Blizzard?
You are going to find lots of different ingredients in a Blizzard. When I worked at a local Dairy Queen in Texas when I was in high school we offered about 30 different blizzards. Blizzards are combinations of Sundae toppings and candies, and so much more. The possibilities are endless!! One thing that should not go into a Blizzard is any milk. This confection is ice cream and toppings only!
Variations on Blizzards
- Chocolate Chip Blizzard – Add two tablespoons Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping
- M&M Blizzard – Add two tablespoons of M&M’s and a teaspoon or two of chocolate syrup
- Butterfinger – Add two tablespoons of Butterfinger, and 1/2 a tablespoon of hot fudge
