They advertise that their Snowball is "better than a Blizzard."
It's tough to argue.
The stand inside the stadium titled "Soft Ice Cream - Root Beer Float" (I couldn't find its actual name written anywhere) sells its answer to Dairy Queen's iconic treat. For $4.50, they mix a cup full of ice cream with crumbled candy. I opted for Butterfinger.
Never miss a local story.
It tasted very similar to the DQ product, but the candy bar seemed like it was crumbled up even more finely. That all of the ice cream taste like Butterfinger. And that's not a bad thing at all.
It was noticibly smoother and not nearly as thick as a Blizzard. I'm the last guy to crack on a Blizzard, but this seemed like an upgrade. And a great way to cool down and finish off a day of gorging on food.
Next stop: the gym. I knew I should have brought some ipecac with me.
