Whether it is the cup turned upside down or red spoon that just brings the happy, summer and DQ go hand in hand. With the new Dairy Queen summer Blizzards, there are several reasons to dig into that infamous soft serve frozen dessert.

While many people are talking about the potential of having a DQ Blizzard named after them, the Dairy Queen summer Blizzards are a reason to celebrate right now. With two new flavors and several returning favorites, it seems that this summer will be even sweeter.

One of the new DQ Blizzards is the OREO Dirt Pie Blizzard Treat. Similar to that fun dessert that kids love, it has all the flavors and textures that people expect. From the OREO cookie pieces to the gummy worms, everyone cannot help but dig into the frozen treat.

The other new summer Blizzard is Caramel Fudge Cheesecake. While some summer fairs might have cheesecake on a stick, this frozen treat has cheesecake pieces folded into the DQ soft serve. Combined with fudge covered salty caramel pieces, it is a perfect sweet and salty spoonful.

Other summertime favorites are returning to the menu. The Girl Scout Thin Mints Blizzard Treat has the cool refreshing mint with the crunchy cookie texture. For anyone who loves those classic cookies straight from the freezer cannot resist this seasonal menu item.

The Cotton Candy Blizzard has been a favorite with younger guests. The fairy floss is not only fun but also one of the sweetest treats on the menu.

For anyone who likes a classic ice cream cone, the Drumstick with Peanuts Blizzard feels like the perfect backyard moment. From the slight saltiness from the peanuts to the chocolate covered Drumstick cone pieces, it captures that flavor without worrying about dropping the cone.

Lastly, the Very Cherry Chip Blizzard seems to bring that taste of nostalgia to the cup. Cherries and summer are a classic food combination. The blend of tart cherries and sweet chocolate is perfectly refreshing on a hot day.

The New Dairy Queen summer Blizzards and returning favorites are available for a limited time. Be sure to enjoy one before they disappear, just like the lazy days of summer.
