A few weeks ago, I discovered the glorious-ness that is Dairy Queen’s Pumpkin Pie Blizzard. Reading up on it, it seems to have debuted in 1991. Where the hell was I? I was in middle school (yes, aging myself) and there was a DQ directly across the street from my school. We pretty much lived at the DQ. It was our main hang out!
Made with pumpkin pie mix and pieces of flaky pie crust blended with creamy DQ vanilla soft-serve and capped with whipped topping and a sprinkle of nutmeg, the chilly fall treat is available at all Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill restaurants nationwide beginning Oct. 1.
If I had known then what I know now…
Anyway, if you visit the DQ website, it lists the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard as the “Blizzard of the Month”. Now, I only discovered this wonderful treat a few weeks ago and they’re going to take it away after 1 month?
Not so fast… I went back to DQ today to get a couple more, mini-sized of course, and I asked the driv-thru attendant. He said that they simply start selling them in October & will continue to do so until they run out, probably around CHRISTMAS!! So, no need to panic! Even if he exaggerated how long it’d be available, clearly The Pumpkin Pie Blizzard should be around longer than just October!
