Before ice cream, cones were only filled with cheerleading chants and an overwhelming sense of responsibility for organizing traffic. Enjoy a conical dessert with today’s Groupon to Dairy Queen. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream and grilled fare.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of ice cream and grilled fare.
Since first experimenting with soft serve more than 70 years ago, Dairy Queen has expanded its menu to include both ice-cream creations and American-style eats. The popcorn shrimp basket touts lightly battered morsels alongside coleslaw and fries ($5.69), and the FlameThrower burger keeps fire alarms on their toes with a half-pound beef patty ignited by pepper jack cheese and jalapeño bacon ($4.29).
Ice-cream whisperers hand-blend shakes and malts until they reach maximum thickness, topping off each cup with a mountain of whipped cream and a maraschino cherry ($2.59–$3.89). Blizzard treats bury candy, cookies, or fruit within an avalanche of soft serve ($2.29–$3.99), and Oreo Brownie Earthquakes find chocolaty cake quivering beneath the weight of marshmallow topping, crushed cookies, and overzealous spoons ($3.49).
