Sure, chocolate-dipped cones are a delight, but just like your wardrobe, you want to freshen up your flavor choices when spring arrives. Dairy Queen is now offering a new dreamsicle-dipped cone. Like the chain’s other dipped cones, this new menu item features the DQ’s classic vanilla soft serve coated in creamy orange-vanilla topping that’s as bright as an out-of-season pumpkin.

You might call an orange-topped vanilla ice cream bar many things — a creamsicle, a dreamsicle, even a 50/50 bar. Either way, it’s a classic treat that you may remember buying from the neighborhood ice cream truck. For the uninitiated, think of a frozen orange ice pop with vanilla ice cream in the center. Now, take away the serving stick, add a cone and that famous swirl at the top, and you’ve got DQ’s new dreamsicle-dipped cone.

The bright orange cones are available at DQ locations now throughout the summer, a Dairy Queen spokesperson told The Daily Meal in an email. The cone is priced around $2.44, but availability and price may vary by location.
