Dairy Queen Launches New Girl Scout Blizzard

Dairy Queen Launches New Girl Scout BlizzardDairy Queen officially launched its new Blizzard flavor of the month for July, Girl Scouts Thin Mint Cookie Blizzard.

The best selling Girl Scouts cookie is now a Blizzard variety, in a cool green color, minty flavored ice cream, with chunks of Thin Mint cookies.

The company sent me a coupon for a free sample of this new Blizzard flavor, so I hopped over to my nearest DQ, and tried it out.

It tastes very much like a mint chocolate chip ice cream, except instead of chocolate chips, it just has chunks of cookies in it.

The Blizzard got its start in 1985 as a soft serve ice cream with flavoring and bits of candy. However, the Blizzard trademark has been within the company since the 1950s, representing various concepts.

In China, DQ actually sells green tea Blizzards. I wonder why they don't offer that here?

The Girl Scouts Thin Mint Blizzard are available in DQ stores right now, and will be around indefinitely.

I love all the blizzrd flavors, especially the banana split blizzard! The only problem is our local Dairy Queen is almost ALWAYS out of bananas......I have never understood how this could happen.

Do the cookie pieces actually taste/crunch like a real Thin Mint? I know that some ice creams/desserts SAY they have cookie pieces in them, but when you get it the cookie is soggy. Part of the thin-mint appeal to me is their certain crunch. If this has the crunch, then it has me as a buyer! I cannot resist the thin mint...and being able to get them any time of the year? Sounds great.
