Dairy Queen's Ice Cream "Treatzza Pizzas" Are Here Again
Listen up, '90s babies. It's time to indulge in a dessert that once thrived during our childhood, because it's back again and better than EVER.
I'm talking about the infamous "Treatzza Pizza," better known as Dairy Queen's ice cream pizza pie dowsed in chocolate drizzles, candy, and soft serve. It's basically the sweetest pizza pie we've ever tasted, and it's finally back on the DQ menu.
The first versions of the chocolatey pizza pies initially hit the menu in 1995, and remained there until 2008, Cosmopolitan reports.
The retro Treatzza Pizzas looked like this:
As you can see, the "cool treat" once included fudge, chocolate crunch, soft serve, and a choice of four different topping combinations. It looks delicious, right?
After the pizzas were re-released in Dairy Queen stores on May 22, even more tasty flavors became available. The new choices include Reese Peanut Butter Cups, M&M, Choco' Brownie, and Heath.
Take another look and try not to feel too nostalgic.
Apparently, people on Twitter are super hyped about the comeback of the Treatzza Pizza, and we definitely can't blame them.
"This is not a drill."
Must. Eat. Now.
They can hardly contain their excitement.
As you can see, Treatzza Pizzas are kind of a big deal.
If you're wondering how the glorious pizza pie is made, have no fear. The Daily Meal dissected its ingredients for us, and we're finally able to visualize what made our favorite childhood dessert so freakin' desirable.
Apparently, the crust of a Treatzza Pizza is made from fudge cookie crunch that's covered in vanilla soft serve. Then, the pizza is covered in candy toppings that depend on which flavor you order (I'm all about the Heath).
In addition to the Treatzza Pizza, Dairy Queen also added another throwback to their menu: the Misty Slush.
Barry Westrum, executive vice president of marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation, talked to The Daily Meal and said,
There is an obvious resurgence in everything '90s and both Treatzza Pizza and Misty Slush were fan favorites from that era. Those two treats were loved by fans from day one. They asked us to bring them back and we delivered.
As a '90s kid, I totally respect DQ's decision to bring back the frozen treats we grew up with.
Thank you, Dairy Queen. You truly delivered.
