Uyghur food? Of course. What about Dairy Queen? Umm, umm, maybe not. If you happen to have the good fortune in close proximity to any of Dairy Queen's more than 5700 locations you might be interested to know that it's Pumpkin Pie Blizzard time at DQ...
As a card carrying member of the Blizzard Fan Club, I get monthly Blizzard updates and when I saw that this month's flavor was Pumpkin Pie--vanilla custard blended with pumpkin pie and topped with whipped cream, I had to give it a try. Road trip to CT!
Lawman and I split a small Blizzard and it was quite tasty. The pumpkin pie filling was pleasantly spiced. The "crust" bits tasted oddly like animal crackers, but hey, I'll never pass up animal crackers. All in all it was a win.
Alas, the closest DQ is in Jersey City. Here's hoping that Shake Shack's Pumpkin Pie Oh-My concrete makes a triumphant return soon. In the meantime, hit up the Shack for Pumpkin Spice Custard on Saturdays this month. Hooray for fall!
