Dairy Queen's New Holiday Blizzards Are Available Now

While most people are still reeling from Halloween and nursing sugar highs from binge-eating candy, others are welcoming November with open arms because the most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner.

There is just so much to look forward to and you can now add Dairy Queen's holiday Blizzards to that list.

The ice cream company announced its 2017 seasonal flavors this week and not only are they bringing back a beloved classic, they've introduced a brand new treat with a frosty twist on a holiday drink.

If you do enjoy eating ice cream even when it's cold out, then you'll love the new options at DQ. Both flavors feature the ice cream chains signature soft-serve loaded with generous amounts of delicious mix-ins.

So what are the flavors?

Last year's Candy Cane Chill Blizzard, a refreshing blend of vanilla soft-serve, crushed peppermint and chocolate chunks is the returning winter flavor.

For those who prefer chocolate, the new seasonal Blizzard, also inspired by a hot wintertime drink, will satisfy.

The Oreo Hot Cocoa Blizzard starts with a vanilla base but it is hand blended with hot fudge and Oreo cookies for rich and crunchy chocolatey result. The treat is then topped off with some whipped cream just like it's done at the coffee shop.

"These Blizzard Treats are the perfect way for our fans to sweeten the holiday season with two quintessential flavors—cocoa and peppermint candy," said Maria Hokanson, Executive Vice President of Marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ).

"There’s no better way to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with family and friends than at DQ," she added.

While Dairy Queen is best known for their soft serve and Blizzards so thick you can hold them upside down, the chain also offers some savory food items and they've made some additions to that menu as well.

As of October 30th, DQ has a $5 Buck Lunch, which includes an onion ring-topped BBQ bacon cheeseburger, fries and a drink, for a limited time only.

The Blizzards, however, are available now through December at all participating locations across the country.
