"Everybody wants a Blizzard. What the hell is a Blizzard?" Trump asked the employees behind the counter in Council Bluffs. "We'll do the Blizzard thing."
Dairy Queen's Blizzard is its "world-famous soft serve," per its website, typically mixed in with candy and flavoring in such a way that it is so thick, it won't fall out of the cup when flipped upside down. Employees will typically flip the cup to demonstrate before handing it off to customers. Blizzards are anywhere between 300 and 480 calories per their smallest serving.
