Blizzards and oreos in everything

I am a little sheepish to be writing my second post in a row about DQ blizzards and new oreos. It appears that I have nothing else exciting going on in my life right now! For theRed velvet second installment in my personal “I will try every flavor Blizzard of the Month in 2016 challenge”, as expected and dreaded, I had to eat a red velvet blizzard. This will now also be known as, the most boring blizzard ever. In fact, it was so dull and boring that I didn’t hate it. Not being a fan of red velvet cake OR cream cheese, I was not looking forward to this month and purchased a mini blizzard, rather than my usual small.  If I had eaten this blizzard with my eyes closed, I would think I was eating vanilla soft serve with something mushy in it. It needed chocolate chips or sprinkles or SOMETHING for texture and/or flavor. Therefore, a giant thumbs down to the boring red velvet blizzard.  I am hoping that the March BofM will be inspired by St. Patrick’s Day and will therefore be minty.  I do love my mint!

Last week was one of those weeks that was packed full of mundane tasks: house cleaning, grocery shopping, laundry, etc. The one bright spark in my otherwise blah week was when I stumbled across a new, very confusing, limited edition flavor of oreos: filled cupcake chocolate flavor. I stared, puzzled at the packaging, trying to figure out what that Chocolate cupcake oreomeant.  So of course, I had to buy a package to investigate. As you can see from the picture (left), these oreos contain chocolate cream with a weird splodge (splodge, is that a word?) of vanilla cream in the middle of the chocolate. They taste nice, but I am not entirely sure I see the point.  As with all these limited edition oreos, I will buy these just once and then wait around for the next new flavor. Whatever that may be.
