Fit for a queen! Dairy Queen launches 'Royal' Blizzard with flavored cores

Dairy Queen

Dairy Queen's signature treat is getting the royal treatment.

Coinciding with the Queen's 90th birthday, the soft serve specialist will launch a line of "Royal" Blizzards on April 21st. The newest frozen confection holds a sweet surprise — a decadent center of fudge, strawberries or marshmallows paired with three popular flavors.

Sounds familiar? That's because another famed ice cream maker already has a "core" concept: Ben & Jerry's, which launched its first stuffed pint in 2014.

Even though the idea isn't cutting edge, it's hard to go wrong with extra mix-ins. Who doesn't want a Rocky Road Blizzard with a column of gooey marshmallows or New York cheesecake pumped up with a strawberry center? And let's not forget what's clearly DQ's reigning flavor, the luscious vanilla custard studded with crushed Oreos and now elevated with a strip of decadent chocolate fudge.

To go with the premium Blizzards, Dairy Queen will also switch up its iconic red spoons for a glittery golden scooper that'll make downing a sundae feel a little more noble. All hail the Blizzard!
