Dairy Queen Gluten Free Menu

The Butterfinger Blizzard can’t be touched! So good.

When I go to Dairy Queen, I don’t even care about their food. The only thing that’s on my mind when I’m there are their famous Blizzards.

My personal favorite is the Butterfinger Blizzard.

It just can’t be touched!

Here’s the Dairy Queen gluten free menu:

    Cross-contamination can be an issue, if you are sensitive. Sometimes they “recycle” ice cream. For instance, if they are training someone to make cones, they will practice and then scrape the ice cream from the cone back into the machine. Nothing wrong with the ice cream, but may have bits of cone in it.


    i hada reaction last night afterceating a small blizzard heath went in to anafletic schock eyes turned red and started throughing up lasted all night today cantvget out of bed the bone pain is so bad? So, not worth it i wont do a blizzard ever again!

      Gluten allergies do not cause anaphylactic reactions. It’s a reaction in the intestines. Also the blizzards are blended with the same blenders regardless of added ingredients leaving a lot of room for cross contamination.

    • jayme says

      Sounds like an allergic reaction to something else not celiac that’s weird I have celiac must not be as bad as some others I eat all the basic ice cream don’t bother me just never put brownie bites or any crum topping obviously and if there is cross contamination is very small it won’t hurt most people..

    I used to work at a DQ, and we hand made the chocolate dilly bars and buster bars. To make them, they are dipped in the same hard coatings that ice cream cones are dipped in, so dilly and buster bars were definitely glutened. Unless your particular dairy queen ships in individually, plastic wrapped dilly bars and buster bars, it isn’t worth the risk. Additionally, blizzards, milk shakes, moolattes, arctic rushes, and basically anything that was blended was done using the same mixing machine, and even if you ask them to clean it beforehand at most they’re going to rinse the mixer with a cup of water or wipe it off with a dish rag used to wipe everything including counters covered in crumbs, etc (or at least thats how it was where i worked.) I personally will only eat the ice cream in a cup with the sundae toppings (blizzard candy toppings are dished out with spoons that are often mixed up and there is a huge risk for contamination with glutened toppings like truffle/brownie pieces.) Sorry to be a downer! I sure miss DQ blizzards and shakes

      Debbie Downer or not, you’ve provided some great insight and information Jill. Greatly appreciated!

    • Mary says

      I currently work for Dairy Queen in East Windsor NJ and we have alot of people with nut allergies .. so many that we have a dedicated Blizzard Machine for anyone with a nut allergy to blend Blizzards or shakes. Any other allergies we sanitize the machine with a Brand new Towel and get the ingredients straight from the box that we receive them in. If someone with an allergy wants sprinkles we pour them from the carton they come in…. Each Dairy Queen is individually owned so you would have to check with your store and ask what their policy is. before ordering.

    I have celiac disease and would also caution anyone who has celiac that eating from any restaurant is always a big risk. I don’t eat out – just not worth it. Most restaurants don’t have in place cross contamination procedures that are followed strictly. And, many times people who just eat gluten free for the heck of it don’t react to foods that are cross contaminated, so when those of us with celiac disease request gluten free foods they don’t take the request seriously. For celiacs gluten causes an inflammatory response which will last long after the stomach problems, headaches, dizziness, etc. But… thanks for the information. I can’t use it, however, people who eat gluten free for non-allergy and intolerance reasons will benefit greatly!

    Interesting that you can’t have McDonalds Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup McFlurry but can have the DQ Blizzard. What the thought on this?

    • Jacqueline says

      I was also told by my nutritionist that mcdonalds soft serve was not gluten free, but yet burger kings is ok

    • jayme says

      Yeah they contain gluten they have normal cake layers with the ice cream that are not gluten free….unless it says gluten free on the box its not worth the risk…

    I am recent diagnosed with celiac and I am now trying to figure out what and what not to eat. I have never had any intestinal issues, my reaction is major swelling of lower legs, ankles & feet. Coming on within 4 hours of eating glutens and lasting 4-5 days. Am I also suffering the intestinal damage but not “feeling” it? With a blood number of 133, I guess I should be worried…?

    • Carol says

      Sally, you should really consult with your Gastroenolist. I was diagnosed in June, 2014 and am still learning. If an item does not have the words gluten free or gf do not buy it. Always have a deli clean their equipment before slicing your meat and always ask if it is gf. No processed foods. I know what you are going through but it does get easier. Be very vigilant. Good luck
