Dairy Queen Announces Peppermint Hot Cocoa Blizzard For December

Another month, and another new flavor from the ice cream restaurant chain Dairy Queen. In light of the holiday season, this new flavor is actually a repeat or a fan favorite if you will. The December blizzard flavor is peppermint hot cocoa.

With the temperatures dropping and the holiday season in full swing, people are enjoying hot cups of hot cocoa, holiday lights and cold winter nights. Dairy Queen is adding the peppermint hot cocoa blizzard into the holiday drink trend as well.

This peppermint hot cocoa blizzard has actually been available at all Dairy Queen locations across the country since November 25th. This year is actually the second year in which the Dairy Queen has made their December blizzard of the month peppermint flavored. In 2018, it was the candy cane chill blizzard, which was vanill soft serve with chocolate chunks and candy cane pieces.


The peppermint hot cocoa blizzard for December 2019 is a vanilla soft serve blizzard with chocolate chunks, peppermint pieces, cocoa fudge and topped with whipped cream. So basically, it’s a frozen cup of hot cocoa that will satisfy even a North Pole Elf’s sweet tooth.

So far, the new December blizzard has had a hugely positive response among social media users. This new blizzard is available in small, medium and large and has a similar retail price as all of the other blizzard flavors. This monthly flavor is expected to be available through the end of the month and even a bit into the new year.

In addition to the peppermint hot cocoa blizzard, Dairy Queen has also added a snickerdoodle cookie dough blizzard. This snickerdoodle blizzard contains little snickerdoodle cookie dough pieces which are then blended with the iconic Dairy Queen creamy vanilla soft serve. There is also some cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top. There is no whipped cream on top of this blizzard.
