Here's How To Order Dairy Queen's Vintage Dixie Belle Sundae

There's something inherently nostalgic about a trip to the Dairy Queen. Considering the first DQ opened its doors in 1940, this magical land of soft serve has been a part of our lives for as long as we can remember. Whether you remember the days when Dennis the Menace was the franchise's mascot (he lost that job in 2001), the introduction of the Dairy Queen's famous Blizzard in 1985, or when the store's signs changed from "Dairy Queen" to "DQ," many Americans have fond memories tied to the home of the cone with the signature swirl. 

Maybe you favor the Dilly Bar, the banana split, or the chocolate-smothered Peanut Buster Parfait. But, what if you long to re-visit a favorite treat from the Dairy Queen of yesteryear and truly experience a blast from the past? Indeed, if you crave a "golden oldie" like the vintage Dixie Belle Sundae, there is a way to order one. 

It turns out that the key to getting your paws on your favorite retro treat is a Dairy Queen secret — secret menu, that is.

The Secret Menu is the key to discontinued treats

According to Fast Food Menu Prices, if your local Dairy Queen has the ingredients, they can make just about any classic treat if they feel so inclined. This is what the secret menu is all about. You just need to provide them with the recipe and flash them your most sincere smile. 

Still have a hankering for a Dixie Belle Sundae? Taste of Home says all you need to do is "ask for a regular hot fudge one, add butterscotch, and finish with pecans." Easy peasy. The old-school Peanut Butter Bash is created by pouring some peanut butter sauce and hot fudge in the bottom of the sundae cup, adding vanilla soft serve, and then pouring the sauce duo on the top. And the nostalgic Jack and Jill is simply a sundae with marshmallow poured down one side of the soft serve and hot fudge down the other. Some other DQ secret menu favorites include the Peanut Butter and Jelly shake, Banana Split Blizzard, and a 1950s-style chocolate soda.  

If all this talk has activated your sweet tooth, you may want to try out this secret menu hack for yourself. Just remember, the key to your success is to know the recipe and remember your "P's" and "Q's." Happy does, after all, taste good.
