REVIEW: Dairy Queen Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Blizzard

What is the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Blizzard?

It’s the July Blizzard of the Month made with soft-baked Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookies and mini chocolate chip morsels mixed with Dairy Queen vanilla soft serve.

How is it?

Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Blizzard Nondescript Cup

Despite the nondescript appearance, complete with the nondescript cup it was served in, this is a top-notch Blizzard. DQ has done numerous varieties of cookie dough Blizzards in the past, and I’ve never really loved any of them. The cookie dough always seems a little gritty because it’s not really cookie dough; it’s “edible” cookie dough. What’s the difference? Regular cookie dough, as in the kind you would use to make cookies, has raw eggs and uncooked flour in it. That makes it unsafe to eat, even though we have all done it. I’m not suggesting that you should eat raw cookie dough, but I think we can agree that it does taste better.

The soft-baked cookies in this Blizzard come pretty close to tasting like raw cookie dough, and they have a really nice non-gritty texture and taste much better than the cookie dough in other Blizzards.

As for the mini chocolate chip morsels, DQ is not messing around when it says mini morsels. They are tiny, and even though they deliver some chocolate flavor, it would have been nice to have some bigger chip pieces.

This Blizzard is also really sweet — not too sweet, but close. The sugar content doesn’t appear to be higher than the average Blizzard, and the ingredients list on the DQ website has a lot of words I don’t know, so I can’t really explain the extra sweetness. But those are minor issues, and I enjoyed this one quite a bit.

Anything else you need to know?

You can still visit the spot where the famous Toll House cookies were invented in the 1930s by Ruth Wakefield at the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts, except that there’s now a Wendy’s and a Walgreens there. You can, however, check out the restored sign and a marker, but don’t get too carried away with the historical significance as the 1709 date on the sign was a marketing ploy, as was the name. The Toll House Inn was built in 1817, and it was never actually used as a toll house. Thanks for ruining it for us, Wikipedia.

Conclusion:

This is not quite good enough to make my personal Blizzard Hall of Fame, which is topped by the late, great Nerds Blizzard, but it’s still delicious, so maybe I can put it in my Blizzard Corridor of Fame.

  1. Nice review! I asked them to add banana pieces to mine and that cut the extra sweetness nicely while adding some texture. It’s one of my favorites now and I will hate to see it leave in August!

  2. I’ve hated Dairy Queen ever since they discontinued my favorite sandwich and the Mint Oreo Blizzard. I only go there once in a blue moon for a banana split because their food is terrible.

  3. I might have to try this, but I’m not sure anything can beat the Frosted Animal Cookie Blizzard!

  4. I really miss the Summer Berry Cheesecake Blizzard from last summer. It was so good. They also stopped doing the Orange Julius and smoothies at our DQ 🙁

    1. No more Orange Julius? I haven’t been to my local DQ in a while, but now I’m concerned. In truth, the Orange Julius is probably what I order most at DQ!

      I do miss the old mall Orange Julius stores…

    2. They don’t do the cheesecake blizzards anymore? That’s dumb. They should always have cheesecake pieces on hand. My go to’s were always oreo cheesecake and strawberry cheesecake.

  5. Did these taste like Toll House Chocolate Chip (Cookies), as opposed to Ghiradelli chocolate chips or Chips Ahoy/Famous Amos cookies, etc.? My palette isn’t strong enough to tell if there is a difference among various brands, but I always wonder if people can tell the difference between a brand and a generic cookie dough Blizzard.
