Long before brain freeze can set in, a different kind of mental anguish takes over: Figuring out which glorious, mix-in-laden Blizzard to order at Dairy Queen. There are so many flavors (and don't even get us started on the Blizzard of the Month).

If you've ever started to order, paused, changed your mind, went back to your original order, then called an audible and went completely rogue-only to experience a mild case of DQ FOMO over the flavors you didn't try-we wanted to help you out. After a taste test and more debating than the average presidential election, these are the fast food chain's absolute best flavors.

11. Cotton Candy

Sprinkles of cotton candy mixed all in with that classic vanilla soft serve? It's good stuff, if extremely sweet to the point of "OK, yeah, I'm done after three bites."

10. Banana Split

It's not a blizzard, per se, but it's as close to a fruit cup as you can get while still shoveling in 290-780 calories per serving, thanks to its blend of pineapples, strawberries, bananas and chocolaty topping in vanilla soft serve.

9. M&M

Don't you dare call it a McFlurry.

8. Turtle Pecan Cluster

Milky vanilla soft serve flirts with its decadent side: Each Blizzard is swirled with pecan pieces, chocolate and ribbons of buttery caramel.

7. Royal New York Cheesecake

It tastes just like someone dumped your favorite diner cheesecake-complete with the requisite, semi-gelatinous-yet-still-delectable strawberry topping-in a blender with a few scoops of ice cream. Perfect.

6. Choco Brownie Xtreme

This Blizzard is the Dairy Queen equivalent of a Powerthirst ad: "HEY, do you want to eat So. Much. Chocolate?! Try the Chocolate Xtreme, a Blizzard for people WHO NEED GRATUITOUS AMOUNTS OF CHOCOLATE." The sugar high is also like adding chocolate to an electrical storm.

5. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

As if chewy orbs of cookie dough weren't enough, this Blizzard includes fudge. Fudge.

4. S'mores

Chocolate in marshmallows and graham cracker blended into vanilla soft serve. It's so good it's almost criminal it's seasonal.

3. Oreo

Cookies & Creme is a crowdpleaser, and this one doesn't disappoint.

2. Butterfinger

It's so simple, yet so delightful: The Butterfinger bits don't get soggy in the ice cream, and they add a nice chocolate-peanut butter flavor (not to mention crunch!) to each bite.

1.Reese's Peanut Butter Cup

You can't argue with the infallibility of peanut butter, vanilla, chocolate, and quantity. This stuff is iconic.
