DQ's Blizzard of the month

In case you didn't know it, Dairy Queen has a new Blizzard of the Month each month. You can check the Blizzard of the Month page to see what it is each month.

This month's featured Blizzard is the Chocolate Malt Crunch.

From DQ: "By combining a mouthwatering mixture of chocolate, malt and scrumptious cookie crumbles with a soothing portion of creamy vanilla soft serve, the Chocolate Malt Crunch Blizzard satisfies customer needs for a deliciously invigorating taste."

The average price of the Chocolate Malt Crunch Blizzard is $2.59 for the 12 oz., $3.00 for the 16 oz. and $3.50 for the 21 oz.

According to DQ,
malted milkshakes were invented in 1922 by a soda jerk at a Walgreens drug store in Chicago. Today, malted milk is found in a variety of sweet treats, including a chocolate candy confection known as malted milk balls, as well as in malted waffles and pancakes. Malted milk has also long been used as an ice cream topping.

For fans of the Blizzard, DQ offers the Blizzard Fan Club, now boasting over 650,000 members.
