These Pumpkin-Flavored Treats Are Officially Returning To DQ For 2021

Pumpkin spice season is right around the corner, and Dairy Queen is not playing around with the options they're going to be offering for this special time of year. Some of the chain's fall favorites will be making a reappearance in 2021, including the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Treat and the Pumpkin Cookie Butter Shake. According to a press release, the sweet treats will be available at DQ locations starting August 30.

These two menu items are established fan favorites, and are poised to be popular again this year. According to Taste of Home, the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Treat has been a seasonal offering for more than 25 years, and the magazine describes it as an "all-time classic." The article likens the sweet treat to "your favorite pumpkin pie a la mode ... mixed up in a blender and served cold." On the other hand, the Pumpkin Cookie Butter Shake was just released last fall, according to Delish, but its huge popularity secured its spot on the menu for a second year.

Sip on these sweet fall drinks

Like the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Treat, the Pumpkin Cookie Butter Shake combines nostalgic memories with warm cinnamon spices to create a dessert that is comforting and full of fall flavors. Dairy Queen describes it as a combination of "pumpkin puree, cookie butter made from ground cinnamon spice cookies, DQ's signature vanilla soft serve and milk, topped with whipped topping and ground nutmeg for a treat worth falling for." How good does that sound?

But before heading to your nearest Dairy Queen, it's important to make note that the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Treat and the Pumpkin Cookie Butter Shake are only available in select locations. So be sure to check if your store is one that is participating in the fall fun this year.

With other popular chains like Starbucks releasing new fall-themed items this year, it'll be hard to control our excitement as the season comes into full effect in the coming weeks.
