The holiday inspired Blizzard Treat is available from now through December 31, 2016 at Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill restaurants.
“There are traditional flavors that are synonymous with the holidays and candy cane would be one of them,” says Barry Westrum, executive vice president of marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation. “We added our own sweet touch to create what has become a very popular seasonal Blizzard Treat. To us, it’s never too early to begin celebrating the holiday season.”
The Candy Cane OREO Blizzard Treat is a sweet, smooth, and crunchy blend of OREO cookie pieces and peppermint candy pieces hand-crafted together with creamy DQ vanilla soft serve. Blizzard Treats are made to order and so thick they are served upside down in four sizes, including the popular Mini.
Many Blizzard Treat flavors, including Candy Cane OREO, can easily be made into DQ Cakes, which are perfect for the holiday season and other special events, such as birthdays and anniversaries.

About Dairy Queen (from Wikipedia)
Dairy Queen, often abbreviated DQ, is a chain of soft serve and fast food restaurants owned by International Dairy Queen, Inc, which also owns Orange Julius and Karmelkorn. The name “Dairy Queen” is taken from the name of their soft serve product, which the company refers to as “Dairy Queen” or “DQ”. The first Dairy Queen store opened in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois. The company’s corporate offices are located in Edina, Minnesota. In 2008 Dairy Queen had 5,700 locations.
A popular Dairy Queen item is the Blizzard, which is soft-serve mechanically blended with mix-in ingredients such as sundae toppings and/or pieces of cookies, brownies, or candy. It has been a staple on the menu since its introduction in 1985, a year in which Dairy Queen sold 100 million Blizzards. Popular Blizzard flavors include: Oreo Cookies, mint Oreo, chocolate chip cookie dough, M&M’s (Smarties in Canada),Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Heath bar, and Butterfinger.
