Everyone knows that the best part of going to Dairy Queen is treating yourself to their famous Blizzard, a delicious combo of creamy soft serve ice cream and your all-time favorite mix-ins. Blizzards are a frozen treat to indulge in year round but there's something so nostalgic about enjoying this must-have dessert in the summer with flavors ranging from Oreo Dirt Pie to cookie dough and cotton candy.
Dairy Queen made their mark in the fast food world when they introduced Blizzard Treats in 1985. Analyst Richard E. Pyle correctly predicted the success of this frozen treat saying, "if they can introduce new flavors, the Blizzard can be as long-lasting as the ice cream cone." Nearly four decades later, Dairy Queen's beloved sweet treats are still going strong as a universally recognized symbol of fast food dessert at its best.
Anyone with a sweet tooth can appreciate the idea of combining candy with soft serve ice cream, and Dairy Queen takes this to another level with caramel sauce, cheesecake and brownie pieces. Whether you're craving a refreshing fruity dessert, a chocolate-lovers paradise, or a peanut butter delight, Dairy Queen probably has what you're looking for in the form of a Blizzard. Plus, they have an ever-changing list of limited-time Blizzards, so if you watch the menu, you might be able to catch one of these very special flavors or the Blizzard of the Month, a delicious little treat created with seasonal inspiration.
Since fall is here, Dairy Queen has released its new fall lineup, which is full of mouthwatering flavors. Here's the menu line-up along with all of the other quintessential Dairy Queen Blizzard flavors you can't miss, including the summer lineup if you missed that.
