That’s not all.  Talk about creating new electricity for a fast food brand. Consumers that want more peanut butter or more chocolate? With the debut of two new Reese’s Lovers Blizzard Treats, fans don’t have to choose. Fans can find out which flavor makes their taste buds sing the loudest by visiting any participating DQ location nationwide during the month of June.
Like the limited-edition Reese's Peanut Butter Lovers and Reese’s Chocolate Lovers Cups that give you more of what you love, the new Reese's Lovers Blizzard Treats give fans the option of enjoying more peanut butter or more chocolate, providing new takes on one of America’s favorite flavor combinations:
·         The new Reese's Peanut Butter Lovers Blizzard Treat features bits of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups blended with even more creamy peanut butter topping and signature DQ vanilla soft serve.
·         The new Reese's Chocolate Lovers Blizzard Treat includes chunks of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, hand-spun with decadent cocoa fudge and creamy DQ vanilla soft serve. 
“The limited-edition Reese's Lovers Cups are flying off store shelves, making DQ restaurants a go-to destination to get a special Reese’s Lovers experience,” says Maria Hokanson, executive vice president of Marketing for American Dairy Queen (ADQ). “Whether you’re a chocolate fan or more of a peanut butter fan, the only question left to answer is, which Blizzard Treat will you try first?”
