FAST FOOD NEWS: Dairy Queen 2020 Summer Blizzard Menu

DQ 2020 Summer Blizzard Menu

Dairy Queen’s Blizzard of the Month for April 2020 is Brownie Dough that features brownie dough, choco chunks, and cocoa fudge. But it’s a returning flavor, so this paragraph is all I’m going to dedicate to it.

What’s more important than a choco-heavy Blizzard that debuted last year is Dairy Queen’s 2020 Summer Blizzard Menu. There are FIVE new Blizzard treats that’ll be around for the next few months.

  • Oreo Cheesecake – Oreo cookie pieces and cheesecake pieces blended with soft serve. A mini order has 490 calories, 22 grams of fat, 10 grams of saturated fat, 0.5 grams of trans fat, 280 milligrams of sodium, 65 grams of carbohydrates, 48 grams of sugar, and 9 grams of protein.
  • Frosted Animal Cookie Blizzard – Frosted animal cookie pieces and pink confetti frosting blended with soft serve. A mini has 410 calories, 18 grams of fat, 10 grams of saturated fat, 140 milligrams of sodium, 56 grams of carbohydrates, 46 grams of sugar, and 8 grams of protein.
  • Wonder Woman Cookie Collision – Chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolatey cookie dough, and fudge blended with soft serve. A mini serving has 470 calories, 19 grams of fat, 10 grams of saturated fat, 250 milligrams of sodium, 68 grams of carbohydrates, 49 grams of sugar, and 8 grams of protein.
  • Raspberry Fudge Bliss – It’s currently not listed on the DQ website, but I can take an educated guess that it might have raspberry puree and fudge chunks blended with soft serve.
  • Royal Rocky Road Trip – Brownie pieces, peanuts, and cocoa fudge blended with vanilla soft serve and then filled with marshmallow. A mini has 500 calories, 19 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 230 milligrams of sodium, 73 grams of carbohydrates, 57 grams of sugar, and 11 grams of protein.

DiGiorno Four Cheese Croissant Crust Pizza

I do not think this is a weird idea. I’m a little surprised it didn’t happen during the cronut craze, but I’m glad it’s here in 2020. (Spotted by @blowyshirts at Target.)

REVIEW: Mtn Dew Frost Bite

Mtn Dew Frost Bite Bottle

What is Mtn Dew Frost Bite?

Given the bottle’s ferocious imagery of an open-mouth great white shark on the label, I was hoping this would be Mtn Dew’s entry into a revolutionary fish-flavored soda game, but, instead, it’s just a “burst of icy refreshment and cool melon.” So, I guess melon.

How is it?

Mtn Dew Frost Bite Closeup

Like most nouveau Mtn Dew flavors, this too has a taste reminiscent of a liquefied Now and Later, which, at least in my opinion, is never a bad thing. And while there is a slight taste of melon — don’t ask me what kind of melon, though — the “blue ice” flavor is extremely prevalent, even if “blue ice” isn’t a flavor found in nature.

But, still, Frost Bite has got a deeply sweet seafaring edge to it that, like the chompers on the non-mountainous mascot, will cut deeply to the bone. Or, given the soda’s oh-so high added sugar content, it might shear the white enamel off with each seriously addictive gulp. If you ever wonder what Powerade Mountain Berry Blast would taste like with a testicular death-grip, look no further.

Is there anything else you need to know?

Available for a limited time, this Mtn Dew flavor is an exclusive flavor to Walmart stores across the country. I bought it instead of toilet paper, mostly because my store was still sold out of it and probably will be for a while.

Conclusion:

Mtn Dew Frost Bite is a downright tawdry yet delicately tasty concoction for landlubbing tongues.
