Dairy Queen Is Dropping This Dipped Cone Flavor From Its Menu

And let's just say, fans are not happy about it.

What time is ice cream time? All the time. Well, maybe not for every flavor.

It’s hard to say no to ice cream. And with good reason, you know? We tend to keep a lot of sweet, nostalgic memories of childhood classics—and ice cream is definitely up there!

We all know Dairy Queen does soft serve better than anyone, especially when the cones are dipped. Which is why it’s extra heartbreaking to see the departure of one of the chain’s most beloved dipped cones. A fruity favorite, in particular.

The Dairy Queen Cherry Dipped Cone Has Been Discontinued

This Cherry Dipped Cone has been on and off the menu at Dairy Queen over the past couple of years, so it’s no surprise to hear it’s leaving the menu once again. The flavor has a pretty dedicated fan base, so whenever the cherry dip appeared at a location, let’s just say it took off. The cones are crunchy, sweet and creamy—all in one bite! I bet the bright candy apple red coloring helped too.

Sadly, as many menu items do, the Cherry Dipped Cone is once again disappearing. TikTok creator @dqshelbytwpmi broke the upsetting news to DQ fans in a video that has already accumulated 4.7 million views and over 380,000 likes. “I feel like a lot of people will be upset about this,” Miranda, the account’s creator, says in the video. “Dairy Queen is discontinuing their cherry cone dip.”


Although, this isn’t the first DQ Dipped Cone to disappear and reappear again and again. In the past few years, we’ve seen the discontinuation and return of the Cotton Candy and Dreamsicle Dipped Cones.

Technically, Dairy Queen’s soft serve isn’t real ice cream—here’s why.

Will The Cherry Dipped Cone Ever Make A Comeback?

Much to fans’ dismay, there’s no exact confirmation if the Cherry Dipped Cones will return. However, according to Dairy Queen, while the news is sad, there may be hope that this won’t be the last sighting of the cones. “DQ is always rotating our dipped cone flavors and Cherry Dipped Cones may return in the future,” DQ says in a statement.

Additionally, the chain adds that “fans should check with their local DQ restaurant to learn which flavors are available.” Nonetheless, we’ll continue to keep our fingers crossed for the day we can finish off a sweet treat with a little cherry on top once again.
