What is the Dairy Queen Pumpkin Cookie Butter Shake
While the Fall Blizzard Menu gets all the attention, Dairy Queen has also launched a new autumnal shake. It’s a pumpkin shake (made with real pumpkin puree) with cookie butter flavoring. I think it’s supposed to be topped with a sprinkling of nutmeg, but I didn’t get any.
How is it?
This shake really nails everything it tries to be. I taste the pumpkin spice flavor that is so iconic and comforting this time of year. I also notice the speculoos cookie butter (you know, like the Biscoff cookies you get on an airplane), and there are even minuscule, crunchy cookie crumbs.
The ratios of pumpkin, spices, cookie crumbs, and ice cream are perfect. It’s delightful!
They gave me a spoon, but I consumed the whole thing with a straw.
Anything else you need to know?
I literally have nothing bad to say about this shake’s flavor.
So why am I not giving it a 10 out of 10?
Well, pumpkin shakes have been around longer than the pumpkin craze, and cookie butter has been quite popular in recent years. Both pumpkin spice and cookie butter have similar flavor profiles. So while this shake is wonderful, it’s not really new territory.
Don’t let the Blizzards’ publicity distract you from this gem of a shake.
