What is DQ’s Frosted Animal Cookie Blizzard?
One of the newest Blizzard treats features vanilla ice cream blended with pink confetti frosting and frosted Animal Cookies.
How is it?
I have a confession to make – I’m a grown man who absolutely loves Animal Cookies (I usually call em “Crackers”) whether they be frosted or unfrosted. All of em. The dry, crispy ones. The little Ringling Bros. boxed nostalgia bombs. And especially the pink frosted cookies.
I never once thought of using Animal Cookies as an ice cream topping, and now I feel like a fool because this Blizzard is borderline perfect.
DQ has basically made a Blizzard that completely mimes the taste of frosted Animal Cookies, while also having a hint of cotton candy and a burst of its vanilla soft serve.
This really tastes like it’s an ice cream that’s three parts vanilla and one-part cotton candy. I have to assume the combo of the cookie icing and the pink confetti icing gives it that taste, and even a look of cotton candy.
I usually find cake icing flavored snacks so disgustingly sweet I wanna bail after a couple of bites, but the flavor and sweetness level is perfect here.
The chopped-up limbs of the poor Animal Cookies who made the ultimate sacrifice maintained a great crunchy texture and added to the experience.
Is there anything else you need to know?
I do have one small complaint, though. It’s the sprinkles on the cookie pieces. Those little ball style sprinkles are hard as a rock normally, so they’re even worse when frozen. There’s enough flavor without them, so I wish those little sugar pebbles were left out of the recipe.
Frosted Animal Cookies have vaulted their way towards the top of my ice cream toppings list. I will make my own concoction in the future, but I highly doubt it will match this Blizzard.
I’d absolutely recommend this, even with DQ’s out of control prices.
