Dairy Queen’s Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Is Coming Back for 2023

Dairy Queen's legendary Pumpkin Pie Blizzard has been beloved by fans for more than 30 years.

The seasons are about to change and you know what that means. It’s time to get ready for everything pumpkin spice! Plus, Dairy Queen is bringing back an all-time classic: the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard. While a Blizzard isn’t technically ice cream, it’s still full of cold and creamy goodness—and we’ll take that any time of year.

What Is the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard?

Dairy Queen has confirmed that it will be bringing back its Pumpkin Pie Blizzard for 2023. This seasonal Blizzard is a sweet and creamy combination of real pumpkin pie pieces—including the crust!—blended with DQ vanilla soft serve. Just like a slice of homemade pumpkin pie, the Blizzard is topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with a little nutmeg.

Speaking of Blizzards, this is why Dairy Queen flips its Blizzards.

Does This Blizzard Really Taste Like Pumpkin Pie?

Yes! It’s simple—this Blizzard tastes like homemade pumpkin pie a la mode mixed up in a blender and served cold. People are crazy about it! Instagram user @exit8eats shared, “Super pumpkin flavor. Good amount of pie crust crumble. If you like the flavor of pumpkin pie, you’ll love this.”

We couldn’t agree more!

This is what you need to know about the original Dairy Queen Blizzard.

Mark Your Calendars

Dairy Queen isn’t making you wait until the leaves start to change. The weather will still be warm when DQ’s Pumpkin Pie Blizzard makes its big return starting August 28. Typically, this treat is only available for a limited time at participating stores, so you’ll want to get it while you can!

And if you’re craving pumpkin in the meantime, pick up a pumpkin spice latte from 7-Eleven.
