MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#lovemyDQ–When iconic brands like Reese’s® Peanut

The Dairy Queen® system, a Berkshire

word extreme with two new iconic Reese’s inspired innovations
that are breaking all the rules.

For the first time ever, DQ has combined Reese’s Peanut

Extreme Brownie a la Mode hot-from-the-oven available at participating DQ

ultimate taste sensation is what we do best. We are always reimagining
our treats to bring our fans incredible flavors, quality and value.”

texture combining smooth Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups,
crunchy Reese’s Pieces and chocolate and peanut butter
topping hand blended together with DQ’s vanilla soft serve. Blizzard
