REVIEW: Dairy Queen M&M’s Peanut Butter Monster Cookie Blizzard

Dairy Queen M&M's Peanut Butter Monster Cookie Blizzard

At first glance, it’s really easy to read Peanut Butter Monster Cookie as Peanut Butter Cookie Monster. That’s what I did, and the first thought that formed inside my Thunderdome of a mind was of Cookie Monster’s much less celebrated, but much more wholesome brother who Sesame Street forgets to talk about.

He’s a behind-the-scenes hero, taking care of Cookie Monster’s kids, consoling his distraught wife, just being the glue when his brother doesn’t come home at night because he’s fallen off the cookie wagon. Is he in jail? On the cookie version of Skid Row, snorting copious amounts of cookie crumbs? Nobody knows, but Peanut Butter Cookie Monster is there to pick up the pieces. What a stand up, made-up guy.

The Peanut Butter Monster Cookie Blizzard more than lives up to the imaginary character it isn’t named after. The word “monster” is appropriately used too since this Blizzard IS a monster…of peanut butter flavor.

There are two peanut butter factors at play with P.B. cookie chunks and peanut butter being blended throughout the Blizzard. The sweet, nutty condiment is in every bite. It takes over the vanilla ice cream like some kind of edible symbiotic life form. You can try really hard to gather up the M&M’s and choco chunks but you’re still going to get a strong nutty presence.

I like how they put both the cookies and smooth peanut butter topping inside. It’s kind of like spreading some of the popular condiment on a P.B. cookie. You get the authentic peanut butter taste, and the more processed taste from the cookies, and the result is a heavenly combo, never an overkill.

The M&M’s accent the P.B. The candy shells really jump out. Because of their surrounding, they basically turn into Peanut Butter M&M’s. But if the Blizzard scientists had tried to put actual Peanut Butter M&M’s inside, I think that would’ve been an overload. It would most likely result in an actual peanut butter monster being born, only it wouldn’t be friendly like P.B. Cookie Monster. Instead, it would be more like a boss from the Dark Souls game series.

I went to the drive-thru to get mine, and I have to say I really hate how they make it a point of handing you the Blizzard upside down now. The window guy looked so cocky when he did it, like he wanted to rub it in my face I wasn’t going to get a free Blizzard for giving it to me right side up.

Not that I would call them out on that anyways, but man, I wish the next Blizzard he handed out fell right out of the cup. Then he could go make himself a nice humble pie Blizzard.

  1. I’m thinking if I add strawberry topping to one of these it would make a killer PB&J Blizzard! Maybe a banana too! Lol

      1. Yea man! Hopefully your Dairy Queen will still make em for ya even tho they’ve moved on to a new blizzard of the month lol. But yea I’m always trying to add banana to anything I can or make a PB&J flavor out of whatever lol. There’s a new pb&j Toaster Strudel out too!

  2. Nice review! I may have to go try this one. Love the Dark Souls reference by the way!

    1. Thank you much, Taylor! I recommend it if you can, especially if you’re a peanut butter fan. I’m still playing the first Dark Souls. My gosh is it putting me through the gauntlet!

  3. This is an awesome review… Cookie Monster’s more respectable and reliable brother. Just pure genius (and also a very descriptive and helpful review)!

  4. I can easily say that this is my favorite blizzard now. It’s satisfying on so many different levels. It’s crunchy, it’s smooth, it’s cold, it’s sweet (but not too sweet), it’s chocolatey and it’s filling because of the peanut butter. When you eat this blizzard, you feel like you’ve gotten away with murder (in a good way, if that’s possible)! This is the second one that I’ve had and the second time I’ve read your review while eating my scrumptious blizzard–making the experience truly a delight.
