Dairy Queen Secret Menu: Get Your Blizzard On With These Tasty Treats

February 26, 2018 by Kyle

(Updated 7/17/19) The Dairy Queen secret menu makes an already delicious treat even better. I’m always impressed with the thickness and creaminess of the fabled Blizzard and my kids absolutely love them. So I figured it was time to uncover the popular items on their secret menu. Be aware that not all Dairy Queen employees have heard of these, so I’ve added the ingredients for each in case you need to tell them how to make the concoction. Enjoy.

Dairy Queen Secret Menu: Get Your Blizzard On

The Dairy Queen Secret Menu:

Banana Creme Pie Blizzard

Some Dairy Queen employees will know this secret menu item by name, some won’t.

So if you get a blank stare, just ask for a Vanilla Blizzard with pie pieces, sliced banana, and whipped cream.

If you love the pie…you’ll love the Blizzard.

Banana Split Blizzard

Most DQ employees will know this one by name.

But if you get a rookie employee, just order a “Banana Split Fixins swirled into a blizzard”.

Man, I love a banana split and this blizzard treat is a perfect Summer day replacement to the hot fudge.

Mocha Heath Treat

This is my favorite Dairy Queen secret menu item.

Order a Vanilla Blizzard and add coffee syrup, chocolate syrup, and Heath bar.

Blend it all up and the result is pure magic.

Caramel Delight Pie

If you love caramel, check out this Blizzard.

It comes with pie pieces, choco chunks, and of course caramel syrup blended in.

It was once a limited time Blizzard, so most employees are versed in how to make it.

Choco Cherry Love

This one is also simple and sure to be a fave among cherry lovers.

It’s just a Vanilla Blizzard with chocolate chunks and cherries blended in.

Chocolate Chip Blizzard

Order this and you’ll get chocolate chips added to the regular Vanilla Blizzard.

Why this Dairy Queen secret menu item is NOT on the regular menu is a complete mystery to me.

Choco Covered Strawberry

If you love chocolate and the taste of a strawberry milkshake, you’ll love this one.

It’s simply a Vanilla Blizzard with chunks of chocolate and strawberries blended in.

Coffee Blizzard

If you’re a fan of a coffee milkshake (kinda like a Starbucks Frappuccino), ask to have coffee syrup added to any Blizzard.

The “coffee blizzard” is the result and it’s a treat sure to excite any coffee connoisseur.

Frozen Hot Chocolate

This is simply regular hot chocolate blended with ice and topped with some whipped cream.

Think of it like a chocolate freeze or even a Fudgsicle.

This DQ secret menu item is terrific treat for a hot summer day.

Marshmallow Creme

This one is pretty simple.

If you’re a fan of marshmallow, simply ask for marshmallow creme on top of any frozen dessert that Dairy Queen offers.

Guessing you can easily make some type of “S’Mores treat” with a little imagination.

Ooey Gooey Caramel Brownie

Another limited edition Blizzard that you can still order from the “secret menu”.

It’s a Blizzard with caramel sauce, choco chunks, and a brownie blended in.

Sounds amazing. Just make sure you run a mile on the treadmill before you put one in your gullet.

Oreo Brownie Sugar Rush

This one is fairly self-explanatory.

It’s just a blizzard with Oreo, brownie, and hot fudge blended in.

Throw some marshmallow creme on top and you got your MEGA sugar rush.

Peanut Butter Crunch

Did you know you can get whole peanuts added to any Dairy Queen item?

Not many people do.

Throw some hot fudge and peanuts on top of anything and you’ll get a crunchy treat that’ll soon be your go-to DQ treat.

Tropical Sunrise

Order this DQ secret menu favorite and be immediately transported to the islands.

It’s a Blizzard with banana, coconut, pineapple, and guava blended in.

The guava is not needed to make this one magical if you’re on the fence about it.

Ask the Reader: Any Dairy Queen secret menu items that I missed? Let me know and I’ll sacrifice my waistline to give it a try.

Also, if you’re a current or former Dairy Queen employee I’d LOVE to hear from you.

Let me know in the comments of any items I’m missing, or feel free to correct the information I do have. I’m all about “getting it right”, so please leave a comment!

hey! dq employee here! my personal creation is the samoa blizzard, like the girlscout cookie! you just ask for a twix blizzard (twix pieces and caramel), and add chocolate cone dip and coconut!!


That sounds great


Ask for a Cookie Jar Blizzard! Oreo Blizzard with Cookie Dough mixed in.


Current DQ employee here! Wanted to let you know that many locations don’t have lots of these add ins. The specific location I work at doesn’t have ‘pie pieces’ or coconut (both very common requests!). Although a lot of the blizzards on the list are actually on our menu: banana split, chocolate cherry love, chocolate dip strawberry, & chocolate chip!

P.S. the best way to order a blizzard not on the menu is by starting with one that is and just making add ins, we can’t make whole new ones!


You should tell tour boss that you get a lot of requests for stuff you don’t have. Maybe DQ will do something about it.


The cookie bowl


I wonder if Dairy Queen would consider making their version of the Hot Fudge Cake. With their delicious soft serve, it would definitely be a very popular item. The local short order pick-up only restaurant in our small town has their version and it is very popular.

The Tropical sunrise without the guava is an Hawaiian Blizzard. And there was a Tropical Blizzard that Consisted of pecans coconut and bananas . And a German chocolate Blizzard that has chocolate Syrup coconut and pecans. And I’m sure I know of more I just have to think about it.


I would love to see a key lime pie blizzard. Use sweeten condensed milk. Key lime juice and gram cracker pie pieces or even just pie pieces. And whipped cream toping.


I work at Dairy Queen and a personal favourite is the Oreo cheesecake! Oreo blizzard with cheesecake blended in
