The truncated category should be: “So Delicious if you scoop it out too hard and it goes flying onto the floor and gets a Smokey hair in it, it is still Delicious.”

Caramel Waffle Crisp Blizzard

Despite the limited time offer for this Dairy Queen offering, I consider this an important entry in the category of waffle cone/caramel/chocolate-based ice cream combinations.  Is it better than Haagen Daaz Caramel Cone?  Probably not.  Is anything (excluding home-made offerings)?  Probably not.  What the Blizzard offers that you can’t get in a pre-packaged ice cream is an incredibly fresh and crispy waffle cone.  They use big pieces, and they don’t get too smushed up in the blizzardizer.  The chocolate chunks are tasty, although not sublime.  Where this flavour loses points for me (and so too does Americone Dream) is the actual caramel taste.  Caramel cone is based on Dulche de Leche, meaning it is caramel ice cream with caramel swirls.  Superr Yummmy.  When they make the blizzard, they start with plain vanilla ice cream, and blend it with caramel syrup.  This means that it still tastes like vanilla ice cream, just sweeter.  You don’t get the hydrocarbon flavour.  But the blizzard still delivers big time, as do all blizzards.  And yes, I licked the cup clean when I was finished.
