I’ve noticed a lot of talk in the comment section that we’ve reached the final mecca for chocolate lovers in the new DQ Blizz – the Midnight Truffle Blizzard treat. Well, I’ve never met a chocolate lover quite like Rachel…
I’m a Blizzard addict. People generally think of me as a good person – someone who remembers to change the toilet paper roll, sends birthday cards at the right time, gets mostly straight As. I don’t smoke. I’d die of an asthma attack if I did. I don’t drink. I’d rather get drunk on sugar. So sugar is my vice – it’s my high. And the best sort of high is a Blizzard high.
I live for the Chocolate Xtreme Blizzard. It’s so good I haven’t eaten any other kind of Blizzard since it came out. I bowed down in reverence when it arrived. It’s like God remembered I was the water girl because I couldn’t make the basketball team. Or that I was asthmatic kid out on the track that always got last. Or that I was a dorky nerd who fell second to my twin in the race for valedictorian. And to make up for it, He said, “hey, this kid deserves a slice of heaven early.”
The things I can do after consuming a Blizzard are near miracles. It was under the influence of a Blizzard that I got the closest I’ve ever come to completing a cartwheel. I can type 100 words per minute. I can juggle. I can almost whistle. I once rescued a fleeing soda bottle from being trampled by the wheels of a car.
There’s a DQ just a couple blocks from where I live right now. Even though I can’t see it from my window, I still see it. I have equated that red DQ sign to what the arches in heaven must look like. If I go too long in between Blizzards, sometimes I awake in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, my tongue reaching for a Blizzard that isn’t there.
The one just a couple blocks down isn’t a brazier. Winter’s tough. I actually go into mourning, wishing I had a red spoon I could pretend with.
Seriously, I can’t even eat chocolate pudding on its own anymore. I have to throw in chocolate chips or sprinkles or marshmallows – making it into some inferior form of the Blizzard. Yogurt on its own is now lame to me. I like my milkshakes chunky. Anything can be made better by putting pieces of candy into it.
I’d write more. But it’s Blizzard time. I’m drooling at the keyboard. Were I to write any more, I might get electrocuted before I even made it to DQ. And when I go, some time far from now when DQ has thought of something that tops the Chocolate Xtreme – if that’s even possible - I sure better have an ice cold Blizzard in my hands, that red sign welcoming me on in to heaven, where they serve up Blizzards morning day and night and even I can get my fill.
Wow, Rachel, those are some Xtreme words of passion! But about those homemade Blizz concoctions – they never work out. Leave the mixing to the pros.
Like I said at the top of the post, the Midnight Truffle is stirring up some chocolate-covered controversy. And it just might be more Xtreme than your Xtreme Blizz. Check out Ken’s column.
This might call for a Blizz-off. Chocolate Xtreme vs Midnight Truffle in a cocoa-crazed battle for the title of Most Chocolatey. May the best Blizz win!

Hey fans, April (yes, that’s really her name) has a great idea!
She said she’s been making BLIZZARD BETS with her husband for 17 years. Whenever they have a disagreement – y’know little things like who sings a certain song or what year something happened – they reward the winner with a TASTY Blizz. Good thinkin’…even the loser gets to go to DQ!
Well, April, you better brush up on your trivia, because whoever wins this month will be treated like royalty with the NEW Blizzard of the Month–the Midnight Truffle Blizzard treat. Rich truffle pieces….dark cocoa fudge….creamy vanilla soft serve… MWAH! An exquisite delicacy fit for the winner of a Blizz bet! I can see you scooping up your winnings from your rightful throne now.
