The Oreo Fudge Brownie Blizzard from Dairy Queen brings an avalanche of chocolatey goodness.

Dairy Queen has released the Oreo Fudge Brownie Blizzard, which sounds like an avalanche of chocolatey goodness, perfect for summertime and in preparation for the PSL tidal wave that is likely on the way in the fall.

This news was previously reported by Delish.

It’s available from now until the end of August, and combines brownie chunks with Oreo cookie pieces and fudge with vanilla soft serve ice cream, which seems like an excellent combination of flavors and textures – there’s the hearty chewiness of the brownie, while the crunchiness and the distinctive flavor of Oreos blends in with the melty texture of the ice cream and the fudge.

Technically, soft serve doesn’t officially qualify as ice cream by FDA regulations, but essentially it is a cold sugary dairy product that’s delicious, so however it’s classified, it’s tasty and summery.

The Oreo Fudge Brownie Blizzard might not be available at your nearest DQ, however – Delish says it’s available at participating locations. And despite a limited-time Wonder Woman 1984 tie=in blizzard on the menu, there’s Lasso of Truth needed with this treat – it sounds terrific.

Like all other Blizzards, including the Summer Blizzard lineup, the Oreo Fudge Brownie Blizzard will be offered in four sizes of mini, small, medium and large.

According to a thorough history from Mashed, the Dairy Queen Blizzard was launched in 1985, selling about 90,000 units, and it’s generally credited to St Louis-area franchisee Samuel Temperato, who made sure people knew he swiped and improved the idea from a local competitor named Ted Drewes.

It was originally offered with four flavors: Heath, M&Ms, Oreo and Snickers, and all candy had to smashed and crushed by hand. (Having occasionally chopped up Snickers bars for peanut butter sandwiches, this is a labor-intensive process, much less the volume required in a restaurant environment.)
