I am beyond ready for spring, and apparently, so is Dairy Queen. According to Chew Boom, the soft serve chain has begun rolling out Dreamsicle-Dipped Cones in honor of the new season. And though DQ has yet to explicitly announce the launch—nor is it listed online—the menu addition has hit select locations.
Don’t believe me? Earlier this month, the brand released a statement ahead of Free Cone Day and made direct reference to it. “This offer includes the NEW DQ orange, creamy, and crunchy dreamsicle dip,” they wrote. SEE! Plus, a handful of Twitter users are already raving over the frozen treat. “I’m just saying…that dreamsicle dipped ice cream cone at Dairy Queen is the f*cking bomb,” Katie Wilson wrote. That’s quite the endorsement. Here are more reactions:
Dairy Queen has a #dreamsicle cone and I don’t know what to do with myself! 😋 #yummy
I’m all in on the vanilla cone dipped in orange dreamsicle at Dairy Queen
I had an Orange Dreamsicle dipped cone at Dairy Queen yesterday.
The Dreamsicle-Dipped Cone includes DQ’s classic vanilla soft serve covered in a “vibrantly colored, creamy orange and vanilla flavored coating,” a rep for the brand said. The specialty item has received so much praise that a number of locations have started selling a Dreamsicle version of the dilly bar. The outlet also reports additional stores will welcome the cone come May 1.
On March 25, The company announced the debut of their new Chicken and Waffle Baskets. “We’re thrilled to offer the best of both worlds with our delicious take on a classic,” executive vice president of marketing Maria Hokanson said. “Fans love our chicken strip basket, and now they can really indulge with the addition of decadent Belgian Waffles.” So, looks like they’ve got dinner and dessert covered.
