The Internet is full of rumors that turn out not to be true, but a recent one about a popular soft serve ice cream chain is, unfortunately. Dairy Queen is getting rid of their classic cherry-dipped ice cream cone and fans are not happy about it. I'm one of them. When I was a kid, a cone dipped in cherry and crunch was my FAVORITE.
DQ confirmed the rumors that first started on TikTok, when an account from a Dairy Queen franchise in Shelby Township, Michigan, shared that the cherry dip was on the way out. The employee in the video explains, “It’s already sold out in our warehouse, so once we deplete the inventory in the store, we’ll be sold out until further notice.”
While Dairy Queen will continue to offer the chocolate-dipped cone and a churro-dipped cone, along with their regular vanilla cone, it’s just not the same for the cherry-lovers. Many have taken to social media to share their heartbreak and outrage over the news:
- “Dairy Queen is getting rid of the cherry cone dip I’m about to riot,” jokes one Twitter user.
- “Hearing that dairy queen is discontinuing the cherry dip cone is gonna be burned into my memory as the worst day of my life,” another tweets.
- “DAIRY QUEEN IS GETTING RID OF THE CHERRY DIPPED CONE???” shares a third. “Year ruined.”
- The cherry-dipped cones have reportedly come on and off the menu over the last few years, and according to “Today,” there’s a glimmer of hope they’ll make a comeback once again. Until then, you can still check with your local Dairy Queen to see if they still have any in stock.
