It's Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Time at Dairy Queen

Pumpkin Pie Blizzard from Dairy Queen
One of the many benefits of living in New York City is the proximity to pretty much any kind of delicious food that you want. You want bagels and lox? We got it. Pastrami on rye? We got that, too. How about 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!

Seriously, after living DQ-free in NYC for four+ years now, trips home to Ohio are no longer about seeing family for me; I go for the frozen hot chocolate at DQ. (It's not on the menu, and it seems to only be available in the Midwest, but you should fly there just for it, 4 realz.) And now, it looks like my trip next week will involve half FHC and half Pumpkin Pie Blizzard, thanks to you.

After reading your post I just had to pick one up. It was quite tasty! Just like pumpkin pie... I could have done without the whipped cream though.

@Elaine: My parents live in CT, so I was able to combine the DQ love with a visit with the fam.

@plumpdumpling: frozen hot chocolate at DQ! Say what?! That's awesome. I'm going to have to seek that out sometime.
