Did You Know?

President Ronald Reagan first proclaimed National Ice Cream Day in 1984, and yes, it has been the best day of the year ever since.


The most amazing part: This extraordinary day is just one in July, aka National Ice Cream Month. A presidential proclamation to enjoy iconic DQ® Blizzard® Treats and soft serve classics like Chocolate Dipped Cones, Banana Split Royal Treats® and Dilly® Bars for an entire month? Yes, please!


In the meantime, everyday DQ® indulgence is made possible by a range of sizes (we see you, mini Blizzard® Treats) and satisfying flavor profiles that take you from simple with a touch of sweet, to over-the-top, can’t-wait-for-the-next-bite decadence (hello, Royal Ultimate Choco Brownie Blizzard® Treat).
