Caramel Waffle Crisp Blizzard

WaffleCrispBlizzardSm.jpg

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.

  • I thought I was hallucinating. I had one three nights ago and I was going to do the caramel cone ice cream smack down. Seriously- I saw the 3B sidebar and was all “I know I was going to post that but I don’t remember!!!!!!”

    I think it was good but mine needed more caramel taste. It came in third.

  • I don’t think there is a DQ in the Bay Area. We drove by one up in central Washington state this weekend. In the same small town where we drove by a telephone museum and 3 drive through espresso huts. It was exciting.

  • Kathleen, there are DQ’s in the bizzay, we got 2 or 3 on the pnenisula so I notice when I am there.

  • I haven’t had that yet, but it sounds really good. I agree that real caramel is better than the syrup, though! And I love Haagen Daaz caramel cone.

    My favorite Blizzard (which was limited time and I only had it twice since I go to DQ rarely) was the cotton candy one. Mmmm, tasty. Weird, but tasty.

    Pinko, I would say the coincidence is eerie, but given that I devote 27.5% of all waking thoughts to caramel cone ice cream and its varietals, this may not be that surprising. I haven’t really had a good enough sample of the Americone Dream to do a proper comparison. HD Caramel Cone delivers about 80% ideal caramel flavour (ICF), while DQ is about 15% ICF. I don’t know where B&J fits in yet.

    I would delete that evo11 comment, but it makes me laugh every time, as does your follow-up, fish.
