A fan-favorite treat is making a return to Dairy Queen menus just in time for the holidays! The Candy Cane Chill Blizzard Treat is officially back and available at DQ restaurants nationwide.

This festive ice cream treat is made with candy cane pieces and choco chunks, so while it is definitely for peppermint fans, it’s for chocolate-lovers, too. The peppermint candy cane pieces and chocolate chunks are both blended with Dairy Queen’s soft serve to create this wintery mix.

If peppermint isn’t your favorite seasonal flavor, Dairy Queen has also brought back their Frozen Hot Chocolate, which blends rich cocoa fudge with vanilla soft serve ice cream and is then garnished with whipped topping and a chocolate drizzle.

While one of Dairy Queen’s fall Blizzards, Pecan Pie, is now off the menu, some of the other treats that were new in September are still available, including Sea Salt Toffee Fudge and Reese’s Pieces Cookie Dough. You’ll also find Turtle Pecan, Choco-dipped Strawberry and their traditional flavors like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Butterfinger and Oreo.

You’ll also find holiday ice cream flavors at Baskin Robbins, which has a handful of seasonal flavors including Peppermint, Skillet Cookie Crumble, Mom’s Makin’ Cookies, Winter White Chocolate and their Flavor of the Month, Gingerbread House.
