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

Updated November 1, 2023 by Kyle

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 DQ 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 all of these Dairy Queen blizzard flavors that’re not on the menu.

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.

Butter Beer Blizzard

To order the Butter Beer Blizzard ask for Butterfingers, Vanilla flavoring, and butterscotch (or caramel if there isn’t any butterscotch).

Thanks to current DQ Employee Trixy for dropping the 411 on this tasty concoction.

She HIGHLY recommends it and any Harry Potter fan would definitely get a kick out of it.

Chocoholic Blizzard

Love chocolate? Gotta try this one.

To make it happen you start with a Vanilla Blizzard and add brownie dough, Chocosauce, hot & cold fudge, and cocoa fudge.

Not done yet.

Then you add Heath bar, Reese’s, M&M’s, Oreo, Butterfingers and top it off with whip topping.

Wow, that sounds a little too rich for my blood but I’d give it a taste.

Thanks to current DQ employee Jesse for this great concoction.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch

If you’re a fan of the cereal, you’re gonna want to try this one.

Order a Snicker-doodle blizzard and have them add in pie chips.

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 chocolate cone dip and strawberries blended in.

Coffee Blizzard

Another blizzard flavor not on menu is the “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.

Cookie Jar Blizzard

Ask for for an Oreo Blizzard then get cookie dough mixed into it.

Sounds amazing, thanks to a RBS commenter for the tip.

Frozen Hot Chocolate

This consists of a Misty base, cocoa fudge and ice cream blended together then 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.

Georgia Mud Fudge

This “chocolate lover” Blizzard is made up of brownie pieces, cocoa fudge and pecans.

Thanks to DQ employee Maddy for the tip, it sounds amazing!

Apparently this Blizzard treat used to exist on the menu so many employees are still familiar with it.

Hawaiian Blizzard

Bring home the flavor of the islands and order a Hawaiian Blizzard.

This delicious concoction consists of coconut, banana, pineapple and sounds amazing.

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.

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.

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.

Oreo Cheesecake

This one sounds really yummy.

Simply order an Oreo Blizzard and ask them to blend cheesecake into it.

The PB&J

Thanks to DQ employee Sierra for this one.

It’s her favorite and consists of 1 pump of peanut butter, strawberry toppings and pie chips.

Mix it up and ask for harvest berry instead of the strawberry.

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.

The PB Crunch Blizzard consists of peanut butter sauce and crunch pieces (not actual peanuts).

Samoa Blizzard

This was created by Ray, a DQ employee so you might have to order it by ingredients.

You simply ask for a Twix Blizzard and add chocolate cone dip and coconut.

Great way to satisfy your Girl Scout “Samoa cookie” cravings.

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. Apparently this treat is called the Hawaiian Blizzard when the guava is excluded.

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


Also a fellow DQ employee be careful though because some locations don’t carry Twix or coconut anymore along with pie pieces and cherries <3

Emily Jensen

Are any of these gluten free? If so what ones


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.


Actually order a vanilla blizzard add Graham base and lemon lime mist. Tastes just like key lime


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


The Banana Cream Pie ACTUALLY has bananas, pie pieces, and banana pudding powder topped with whipped topping.
The Chocolate Covered Strawberry is cone coating and strawberry.
One of our most popular was during the Girl Scout cookie introduction and it was the Thin Mint. You can still bring us the cookies and we can blend them in. 🙂


I currently work at Dairy Queen, and I’ve been looking for some new recipes to try out, and I thought you guys would love the following!
PB&J: Pump of peanut butter, some strawberry topping, and pie chips! (My favorite) or if you prefer you can always ask for Harvest Berry instead of the strawberry:)
Cinnamon Toast Crunch: Just snickerdoodle base and pie chips!

You don’t need to know

Hi um I noticed your missing the grasshopper blizzard


The oreo cookie jar blizzard is oreos, cookie dough and cocoa fudge. The peanut butter crunch blizzard is peanut butter sauce and crunch pieces (not peanuts).The Hawaiian blizzard is coconut, pineapple and banana and the tropical blizzard has pecans in it instead of pineapple.The frozen hot chocolate is misty base, cocoa fudge and ice cream blended together. The chocolate covered strawberry was made with chocolate cone dip instead of chocolate chunks.


Ditto on the Tropical and Hawaiian ingredients! Cookie Jar is currently Oreo, cookie dough and hot fudge. Never heard of the Tropical Sunrise and I’d be very surprised if we ever got guava back in 😂


The banana.cream pie is fake the dont make pie so the are lieing to you


Lol they make pie pieces… which is where the pie part comes in🤦🏼‍♀️ It’s a blizzard lol but not all DQ places have the pie pieces available.

Current DQ employee here, today I didnt even know we had a secret menu. Now, I do. Somebody today actually asked for a cookie jar blizzard and I was actually baffled because I didnt know it existed (I make the ice creams, thats my designated job). Long story short, keep in mind not all DQs including my own do not have Guava, Twix or Cherries. But I enjoyed this very much! We actually have a s’mores blizzard and a choco covered strawberry blizzard thats not on the secret menu! To anyone reading, order a basic vanilla blizzard, with banana, choco chunks and chocolate syrup. I have no name for it, but I’d probably just call it “Chocolate Covered Banana” lol. Its really good, trust me!!


I’m a newer DQ employee, but typically any Blizzard that was once on the menu is generally still in the system or at least one employee will know how to make it. As of right now there are only two royal blizzards shown on the menu(NY Cheesecake with strawberry center and Ricky Road Trip with marshmellow center) but a few years ago, there was a royal Oreo fudge blizzard and I lived it and you can still order it even though it isn’t featured on the menu. Another one, I actually got an order for it today is the Georgia Mud fudge, it has brownie pieces, cocoa fudge, and pecans, so if you once saw it on the menu, you can probably still get it. Even the “seasonal blizzards”, like the summer ones, we will still have the ingredients for and you’re generally still able to order them.
