Dairy Queen ushers in the fall season with the celebration of fan favorites on the menu in October with Pumpkin Pie as the Blizzard of the Month, as well as Pumpkin Pie flavored Royal Shakes and Pumpkin Pie Blizzard in a Waffle Cone.
Available at participating Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill restaurants nation-wide from Sept. 30 to Nov. 28, the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Treat is a delectable combination of pumpkin pie mix and flavorful pie chips blended with creamy DQ vanilla soft serve. Pumpkin pie mix also is added to DQRoyal Shakes and the Blizzard in a Waffle Cone to give them a seasonal sparkle. All three delectable treats are crowned with fluffy whipped topping and nutmeg.
The Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Treat is available in four sizes, including the popular Mini, and Royal Shakes are available in three sizes.
“The Dairy Queen system is known for the innovation behind our treats and food and this month is a great example of that,” said Barry Westrum, executive vice president of Marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ). “Pumpkin pie is such a popular seasonal flavor that we’ve infused it into our signature treats and are extending its availability through November to create an irresistible fall at Dairy Queen restaurants.”
Many Blizzard Treat flavors, including Pumpkin Pie, also can be made into delicious DQ Cakes, perfect for celebrating special events and holidays including fall tailgates, Halloween parties, Thanksgiving, birthdays, anniversaries and more.
Dairy Queen began blending simple combinations of fruits, nuts, chocolates, cookies and candies with DQ soft serve in 1985 to create the signature Blizzard Treat. The iconic treat has created the served upside-down Blizzard culture and since then, one-of-a-kind flavors such as S’mores, Chocolate Candy Shop and Confetti Cake have delighted Dairy Queen fans as part of the featured Blizzard of the Month program, which began in 2003.
