It's time for fall Blizzards in Sioux Falls. We got hit by a full storm and it never tasted so good! There are 3 new Blizzard treats now available in Sioux Falls and we got to try them all.

There are a lot of reasons I love the Dairy Queen Grill and Chill at 57th & Western Ave. in Sioux Falls. Of course, there are the Blizzards, Burgers, Dip Cones, Dilly Bars but they are also so great about supporting local causes like The Sanford Health’s Children’s Miracle Network.

For every Blizzard treat or Blizzard coupon sold a $1 is donated to Children’s Miracle Network that helps local children's causes. This year's Miracle Treat Day is coming up on Oct. 28 in Sioux Falls.

Shawn Beck is the General Manager & Operating Partner at the Dairy Queen Grill and Chill at 57th & Western Ave. in Sioux Falls. Shawn has got to be about the hardest working guy in retail. That's one of the many things his employees respect about him.

Recently I got to witness Shawn in action. Shawn is no meteorologist but man can he make a Blizzard! He whipped up a storm of the New DQ Winter Blizzards you can find available now at the restaurant.

DQ has release 3 new Blizzard flavors including Pecan Pie, Reece's Pieces Cookie Dough, and Sea Salt Toffee Fudge. And some other Blizzard treat favorites making it back on the menu are Oreo Mocha Fudge, Choco Dipped Strawberry, Royal Ultimate Choco Brownie, and Pumpkin Pie.

Shawn sent all of these ice cream treats along for my co-workers and me to taste test. I was very popular. Here are some of the critiques ….

Andy Gott: "The DQ Choco Dip Strawberry Blizzard is BERRY BERRY Delicious!"

Christine Manika: "The New Pecan Pie Blizzard is a perfect combination of a sweet and salty taste. I believe there are hints of cookie dough in here too which is my favorite part!"

Jerry P. Tried the Oreo Mocha Fudge or OMF Blizzard: "I didn't know WTF an OMF blizzard was but after trying it I was like OMG."

Jeff Thurn commented on the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard: “After eating the new blizzard at DQ I'm high on pumpkin pie.. Great crunch too... good stuff!”

Sonja Hofstad: "Candy canes, chocolate and ice cream!  Yum!! A perfect treat for the holidays!!"

Jeff Harkness: "Reese’s Pieces Blizzard The perfect combo of smooth and crunchy, sweet and salty!"

Beth Saulsberry enjoyed the Ultimate Chocolate Brownie Fudge Blizzard: “Do you like all things chocolate and wish you could wrap yourself in a chocolate hug. That’s what this blizzard is like, the sweetness of the chocolate mixed with the ribbons of fudge makes each spoonful creamy and smooth. Then there is the added bonus of a bite of brownie to round out the whole experience.  I give it 2 thumbs up!”
