Dairy Queen Celebrates 80th Birthday with Piñata Party Blizzard


By Cooking Panda

Grab the kids and get the keys ready because we hear a new Blizzard is coming through (and it’s the good kind)! The limited-release Dairy Queen Piñata Party Blizzard has a pink, vanilla-flavored soft serve base, soft cake pieces, icing chunks, and a swirl of whipped cream with sprinkled candy confetti on top. And just like the trending cake version, this Blizzard contains a special surprise: a colorful candy middle!

The new frozen treat celebrates the fast-food chain’s 80th birthday. According to one DQ location, the Piñata Party Blizzard will be available for one weekend only—June 18 through June 21. Blizzard fans, definitely get in on this!

DQ first sampled the new Blizzard at their DQ Connect 2020 expo in January, according to Instagram user @lynndqs. Because of its limited release, we’ve only seen a few posts about it on Instagram. But YouTube vloggers Melz&Chris shared a glowing review of the treat. 

“This is as good as the Frosted Animal Cookie [Blizzard],” Chris said in the video. “And it’s pink, so it’s pretty!”

The new release also comes after DQ’s birthday promotion in March, when they offered customers buy one, get one Blizzards for just 80 cents (a small is typically over $3.00, but varies by location). We hope this won’t be the last of their birthday festivities! 

DQ has 15 Blizzard flavors to choose from, including the new Frosted Animal Cookie and Oreo Cheesecake Blizzard (at participating locations). They’re also famous for their other frozen treats, like their dipped cones and simple sundaes. You can find a DQ location closest to you using their online locator.
