Did you know that you can pair churros with a lot of other things aside from its classic chocolate partner? Cinnabon, for example, topped their Chillatta with a churro and came up with the iconic Frozen Churro Chillatta (it’s a drink and snack in one!). But if you’re not a fan of over-the-top churro-themed treats, Dairy Queen’s got a more simplified offering in the form of their Churro Dipped Cone. This serves as another sweet reminder as to why the company is regarded as royalty in the frozen treats’ realm!
The new Dipped Cone appears to be Dairy Queen’s flavor for the sunny season. And it’s so fresh that Dairy Queen itself hasn’t had the time to properly introduce this delightful new addition to their summer menu. But Instagram snack news announcer @theimpulsivebuy was lucky to break the news about it, thanks to Kaitlyn W.’s submission. According to the post, Kaitlyn W. spotted the Churro Dipped Cone at a Dairy Queen location in central Pennsylvania.

Impulsive Buy reader Kaitlyn W sent us this photo she took from a Dairy Queen in central Pennsylvania of a new Churro Dipped Cone. There currently isn't any information about it on the Dairy Queen website. About this time last year, DQ offered a Dreamsicle Dipped Cone for its Free Cone Day, so maybe this a flavor that's supposed to be the highlight for this year's DQ Free Cone Day, which has been postponed, according to the company.
Dairy Queen combines two all-time favorites with the Churro Dipped Cone
Kaitlyn W. was keen to give the Churro Dipped Cone a try upon spotting it. She noted that “the cinnamon sugar on top of the ‘dip’ part was a nice touch”. However, she said that she “didn’t detect much of any inherent flavor in the dip itself”. Additionally, in comparison with Dairy Queen’s classic Chocolate Dipped Cone, the new flavor has a lighter color, and is definitely worth a try.

Found it – the mythical DQ CHURRO dipped cone!!!! In January a DQ franchisee posted some pics from the DQ Connect Expo in New Orleans showcasing some new items coming to DQ this year There’s the Cotton Candy dipped cone, Wonder Woman movie tie-in items , an interesting Pinata Blizzard…. and CHURRO!!! Then in March a pic was shared in Pennsylvania of a sign outside a DQ promoting the churro cone…. but no other info as they weren’t selling it There was nothing on DQ website or social media – Nothing After searching several locations, finally found a store that sold them. No signs or anything on menu board …. I just asked and voila Maybe it’ll be out at all locations before National Churro Day on June 6th for all to enjoy #DairyQueen #churro #churrodippedcone #cottoncandy #DQ #LetsAllGoHandInHand #scrumpdillyicious #junkfood #junkfoodjunkie #food #foodie #foodporn #613eats #ottawafood #ottawafoodies #ottawafoodie #ottawafoodblogger #ottawa #ottawacanada #OhCanada #TheRealDarrenStevens #RealDarrenStevens #DarrenStevens #FollowMe #pleasefollowforuselessinfo
Intrigued by the churro mystery, @therealdarrenstevens set out with a mission to track down the cone in his area. Eventually, his found what he was searching for. Darren Stevens didn’t talk about how the Churro Dipped Cone tastes. But judging from his photos, we can tell he loved it. The ‘mystic’ cone comprises of Dairy Queen’s classic vanilla soft-serve, coated with a layer of churro-flavored dip.
A sprinkle of cinnamon sugar tops the cone. He also speculated that we might be seeing this cone out in all locations before National Churro Day (June 6th). We’re certainly hoping that that’s the case!
