As summer comes to an end, Dairy Queen is reminding ice cream lovers the season (which has been hot one) is not quite over.
For a limited time, the ice cream and fast food restaurant chain is offering Blizzards for 85 cents.
The special on the company’s signature treat comes on the heels of DQ dropping its new fall Blizzard menu this week.
“The new Fall Blizzard Menu is here to help you embrace fall with full fervor!” Dairy Queen wrote in a news release on Wednesday.

How to get 85 cent Blizzard deal
The one-time deal is not available quite yet.
It will be available through the DQ app between Sept. 11-24 at participating locations, Dairy Queen said.
If you don’t already have the Dairy Queen app, you can download it on your phone and sign up to become a DQ Rewards member to get the one-time deal.
More good news for Blizzard fans: You don’t have to wait until next season to try DQ’s new fall menu.
The new menu items are now available for a limited time at participating stores, the chain said.
(Although the date varies from year to year, fall usually kicks off around September 21-24. This year the autumn equinox begins Sept. 23.)
Does healthy fast food exist? Look out for this type of menu for the healthiest option.
The move marks the second time this year the chain offered the deal for its signature treat.
In late March, DQ offered the same deal when it announced its summer menu Blizzard lineup which included the Cotton Candy Blizzard and the Choco-Dipped Strawberry Blizzard.
