An Artic Rush is a tart/sweet frozen drink that’s pretty delicious on its own, but ask your server to add a little of DQ’s famous soft serve, and you’ve got a surprisingly tasty dessert.
It’s like a chocolate shake, but so, so much better. Cocoa fudge (a thick, chocolate syrup-like mixture) is combined with slushy base and then blended with vanilla soft serve to give your favorite wintertime drink a summery makeover.
This shake isn’t on the menu, but a lot of DQs keep it in stock all the same. It’s like the popular shamrock shake at McDonald’s, only you’ll feel like you’re in a secret club when you’re slurping it.
Speaking of Mickey D’s, if you love their off-menu leprechaun shake, politely ask your server to blend a little chocolate syrup into your mint shake. Double secret menu!
Most DQs serve Coke, Pepsi, and root beer, so pick your flavor and ask nicely if they’ll blend in a little ice cream. Voila, a float just like you had when you were a kid.
If you love the off-menu peanut butter and jelly Blizzard, why not try the same old-school goodness in a shake? DQ already offers peanut butter shakes; just ask them to mix some fruit topping in as well. You’ll feel like you’re back at story hour snack time.
Don’t let lactose intolerance keep you away just because “Dairy” is right there in the restaurant’s name. All of their smoothies can be made with an ice-based mixture.
Because who really wants to get a fork involved with their ice cream? Get a banana shake then ask your serve to add chocolate and caramel sauce as well as some fruit topping. Finish it with some whipped cream, and you’ve got yourself a user-friendly banana split.
