I grew up in the land of Dairy Queen. But after some racist treatment at a Florida location in 1998, Blizzards left a bad taste in my mouth. Well, thank goodness my current state, California has the Fosters Freeze chain. We are in Glendale and really want ice cream. This is what comes up nearby on Yelp.
I really don’t see the point in cones or cups. Here, Blizzards (soft serve with mix-ins) they’re called Twisters…
…and come in about a million different flavors, like Peanut Butter and Jelly.
I end up ordering a Junior Size, the one you’re supposed to order when you have kids. It’s a vanilla base with Butterfingers bits that they blend throughout. And it is truly perfection.
I trade bites with Melanie Maras’ Mint Oreo Twister, also wonderful. I like my Mint Ice Cream to taste fake and not artisanal. Like I don’t want it to have fresh herbs in it – sometimes I think it tastes like marijuana! This flavor is definitely not that. It’s like a Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie.
The Soft Serve Twister keeps me full til pretty late. When I get home I just have some melon for dinner.
Thank you for bringing soft serve and candy back into my life, Fosters!
