According to the calendar, summer has officially started, which means now is the perfect time to eat ice cream — and lots of it. But if plain vanilla won't do for you, look no further than your nearest DQ.
The fast food chain beloved for its soft-serve ice cream and frozen treats is never one to leave a creative flavor behind. With recent releases like Pumpkin Pie and Mint Oreo, they've got their eye on new flavors that will thrill and delight — which is exactly what their summer lineup does.
If you've not seen it yet, DQ is bringing back two fan favorite blizzard flavors and releasing four all-new ones. These include:
- New Oreo Cheesecake Blizzard Treat – Oreo Cookie pieces and cheesecake pieces blended with DQ vanilla soft serve.
- New Frosted Animal Cookie Blizzard Treat – Frosted animal cookie pieces and pink confetti frosting blended with DQ soft serve.
- New Drumstick with peanuts Blizzard Treat – Crispy chocolate coated waffle pieces blended with peanuts and creamy DQ vanilla soft serve.
- New Raspberry Fudge Bliss Blizzard Treat – Real raspberries, soft fudge pieces and choco chunks blended with DQ soft serve.
- Returning S'more’s Blizzard Treat – Marshmallow filled chocolates and graham blended with DQ soft serve.
- Returning Cotton Candy Blizzard Treat – Cotton candy sprinkles blended with DQ vanilla soft-serve.
The Drumstick Blizzard Treat is only available in July, so you'll have to act fast (and often) if you want it.
To help promote the new menu and all the ways we can still have summer fun, DQ assembled a panel of experts to help people "summer" like never before. This new program, #DQSummerFun, offers at-home ideas that are easy for families to implement at home. These top tips run the gamut from at-home animal adventures, travel plans and even a DIY backyard waterpark.
The panel of pros include TV Food & Lifestyle Personality Brandi Milloy, Animal Expert and Trainer Dave Salmoni, and Family Travel Expert Julia Dimon. And the trio of personalities are syncing up their tips to correspond with DQ's full blizzard menu. A summer of fun and ice cream? Where do we sign up?
