Many of our Blizzard candies and toppings contain wheat, rye, oats, and/or barley that would not be safe for a customer with gluten intolerance. Please note that the Blizzard mixing machine is used for all flavors and so cross-contact may occur on any Blizzard flavor treat. As DQ stores and restaurants are very busy, there is always a chance of cross contact of gluten in any DQ product.

For your safety, we recommend you notify the staff at the DQ location of your allergy or intolerance before placing your order and request they thoroughly clean the Blizzard machine before blending your Blizzard to reduce the risk of cross-contact.

Additionally, please double check all of this information regarding food and treats with your local restaurant.

(It’s rumoured some locations in the city have separate fryers for gluten free items.)


  • Dairy Queen does note that there is always the risk of some cross-contamination with any of their food due to the environment they are prepared in.
  • It doesn’t hurt to ask to speak to the location manager about your dietary restrictions if you think there could be an issue.

Dairy Queen History

Dairy Queen is the world’s biggest seller of soft frozen dessert products. Dairy Queen’s remarkable story started with a 10 cent sale of the then unnamed product in 1938 in Moline, Illinois. A man named McCullough and his son, Alex McCullough, had been experimenting with a soft frozen dairy product. One day, they arranged to experiment their new dessert in an Illinois-based ice cream store, owned by Sherb Noble. The sale was a big success! More than 1,600 dessert lovers lined up to try the treat, and McCullough knew they had found a business opportunity. With such a success, the McCulloughs started looking for a type of freezer that would make producing soft ice-cream a reality.

They contacted two dairy equipment companies and asked if they would design a machine that produced semi-frozen dairy products. The two manufacturers turned down their proposal. Dejected and with no place to go, the McCulloughs seemed to have hit a dead end. But one day while McCullough was going through the want adverts in the Chicago Tribune, he stumbled upon an advert that could make large quantities of soft ice cream. The ad was placed by Harry M. Oltz. In 1939, McCulloughs and Oltz met and reached an agreement.

According to McCulloughs and Oltz agreement, Oltz received royalties equal to 2% per gallon of ice-cream run through all the dispensing freezers. The agreement also gave the McCulloughs licensing rights in the Western United States, while Oltz reserved them for the Eastern United States. On June 22, 1940, McCulloughs and Sherb Noble opened the first store in Joliet, Illinois. More stores were opened in Moline, Aurora, Illinois, and Davenport, Iowa, and by 1942 there were 8 Dairy Queen stores in operation.

Today, there are thousands of Queen stores spread across the United States, Mexico, Canada, Europe, Central America, and the Middle East. While a lot has changed in the world since Dairy Queen was founded, one thing has remained: Dairy Queen outlets are still a place to find businessmen and women on their lunch break and families enjoying delicious foods and soft-serve treats.
