  1. I tried this over the weekend and was not impressed. It seemed like it was just chocolate ice cream with toffee in it. Maybe my DQ made it wrong? Or maybe I was destined to be disappointed because I was hoping for the Grasshopper blizzard to still be around…

    1. I thought the same thing. Was disappointed with it and thought I got someone else’s order. Definitely not salted caramel. Won’t get it again.

  2. What? There’s no Brownie Earthquake or Grasshopper blizzards anymore? Sad, sad day for me. Can you tell I don’t go to DQ all that often? 😉

  3. I work at DQ and my store still has the Brownie Earthquakes and the Grasshopper Mousse Pie. We’re going to be having the Grasshopper blizzard all year. The Oreo brownies that are in the Oreo brownie earthquake got discontinued so we are just using brownie pieces instead. But my new favorite blizzard is the Salted Caramel Truffle. In fact, I’m eating one right now. 🙂

    1. I took one bite of the Salted Caramel and drove around the building to take it back. It didn’t have any caramel flavoring and after speaking with the manager she even agreed that she had no idea why they called this one Salted Caramel because it in no way tastes like salted caramel. 🙁 So disappointed.

  4. Was looking forward to this new Blizzard, but disappointed. The picture shows a very light brown ice cream. But when I got it was DARK chocolate. Maybe they added too much syrup, but only finished half of it, will not get it again.

  5. Looked forward to this new Blizzard. But when I got it the ice cream was DARk chocolate not like they show in the picture. Only ate half of it, will not get that one again.

  6. The name of this month’s blizzard is deceiving. The caramel covered chocolate pieces have so little caramel flavor it’s nearly undetectable. They don’t add in caramel syrup to flavor the ice cream. It taste’s like a cookies n cream blizzard, to me. I drove around the building and gave it back to them because it tastes nothing like salted caramel. 🙁 Very disappointed. They should have extended the mint for another month if they had nothing better than this to offer

  7. I’m trying it as I type this. It’s like other reviewers say. It’s not as described. The only caramel flavor comes from the bites of chocolate covered caramel. However, it’s still a delicious Blizzard. There are PLENTY of these bites of caramel and the toffee bites are tasty. The ice cream isn’t caramel, but it still has a good chocolatey taste. To say its name is deceiving is true, but to return it after trying it is a vast over reaction. It tastes dynamite.

  8. This was such a HUGE disappointment!! My husband and I each got one and we both dumped them out. There was nothing caramel about this. It was dark chocolate Heath with chocolate chunks. Way too sweet. This blizzard should have vanilla soft serve, caramel sauce, and the chocolate sated caramel truffle chunks.
    Epic Fail!!

    1. I know this was months ago but, I so agree! It in no way tastes like salted Carmel! Even when eating the truffles all I could taste was the nasty toffee and over done cocoa. To be honest it didn’t taste like cocoa but way to sweet chocolate. Should of been like you said, vanilla ice cream with swirls of Carmel and the truffles. Maybe a few DARK chocolate chips through out. Anyways I’m so disappointed!

  9. This blizzard is awful. It’s completely lacking in flavour (caramel or otherwise). I’m not sure how others are saying the ice cream was chocolatey, because it definitely was not. It was sweet and bland. I don’t know how anyone would want to eat more than a few spoonfuls of this crap. Regretting not getting my usual (Georgia Mud Fudge <3)

  10. I am highly disappointed in the salted caramel truffle blizzard! It in no way tastes like salted caramel. In fact you taste no salted caramel at all. You get a brief taste of caramel when you eat the truffle but it most definitely is not salted. Very deceiving name!

  11. This blizzard is awesome! One of the best I’ve had, it should be called chocolate toffee truffle tho.

  12. I am going to disagree with a lot of the other commenters. I think this one was aptly named – the Salted Caramel TRUFFLE Blizzard. I just had one for the first time and it was filled with, what else? Salted Caramel Truffles. It isn’t called the “Salted Caramel Blizzard,” in which I would expect a more dominant caramel flavor in the ice cream itself. It is called the “Salted Caramel Truffle Blizzard.” (Side note: Mine was not a dark chocolate ice cream as others have mentioned – it was a very light brown with a slight chocolate taste. I am guessing the person making them got trigger happy with the chocolate on the ones that have dark brown ice cream.) I love that they included the little caramel toffee pieces as a texture variation – it reminded me of Godiva’s “Salted Caramel” chocolate bar. Godiva’s doesn’t have any liquid caramel in it at all – just salted toffee bits. Overall, love this blizzard. 🙂

  13. I’m not too big of an ice cream fan but this was PHENOMENAL! Absolutely delicious!!! I can hardly wait to go to town tomorrow and get another one…a bigger one…the biggest one I can get!

  14. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED! The chocolate fudge they put in it was NASTY and it overpowered all the other tastes. I had to pick the caramel truffles out and just eat them. They were good but did not taste like salted caramel. If you are craving salted caramel DON’T GET THIS BLIZZARD!

  15. THIS WAS THE BEST BLIZZARD EVER!!!!!!!! Super sweet, amazing goodness. The salted caramel Truffles were exactly that…truffles!
