It’s like a cotton candy blizzard and an ice cream teamed up.

We’re less than a week from the beginning of daylight saving time, a moment on the calendar that offers the first faint glimmer of spring before it officially begins later in March. That means it’s almost time to start thinking about the tasty treats like ice cream and cotton candy that pair well with longer days, warmer weather, and watching baseball.

If you’re a fan of either of those specific ballpark/fairground favorites just mentioned, you’re probably going to want to know that Dairy Queen has found a way to combine a vanilla ice cream cone with the look and taste of cotton candy into one sweet, highly Instagrammable menu item. Folks, behold the Cotton Candy Dipped Cone.

From what we know, it looks like this is a new flavor of a hard shell-dipped cone, similar to what’s already on the DQ menu. Except this time around, it’s taking its baby blue-hewed cues from the Cotton Candy Blizzard you might already know and love.

This waffle-coned wonder you’re seeing there isn’t a mere hypothetical, but something that certain Dairy Queen fans have already been lucky enough to get their hands on. It should be rolling out to Dairy Queen locations nationwide by March 19th, and the fact that you’ll already find it on DQ’s online menu is a pretty good sign that the Cotton Candy Dipped Cone is not somehow too good to be true.

So whether or not it’s ice cream weather by the time this special cone comes out, give it a shot. Because when you combine a classic ice cream cone with cotton candy, you pretty much can’t go wrong.
