A holiday favorite, the Candy Cane Blizzard, is available starting today at Dairy Queen, the chain announced.
Starting November 1, 2017 and lasting through the end of January, get the Candy Cane Blizzard or a new holiday treat, the OREO Hot Cocoa Blizzard.
“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.”
With the new OREO Hot Cocoa Blizzard Treat, the DQ system is creating a unique twist on a treat that blends hot and cold. OREO cookie pieces and rich cocoa fudge are hand blended with cold, creamy, classic vanilla soft serve then topped with whipped topping.

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 2016 Dairy Queen had 6,700 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.
