MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The unofficial start to the fall season is marked by the beginning of the school year, the kickoff of football season and everything pumpkin and apple.
Just in time for fall, the Dairy Queen® system, a Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A and BRK.B) company, is bringing back two fan favorites today, the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard® Treat and the Apple Pie Blizzard Treat.
Available at participating Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill® locations nationwide, the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Treat is a smooth and creamy combination of pumpkin pie pieces and classic DQ® vanilla soft serve that’s crowned with whipped topping and a touch of nutmeg.
