Dairy Queen Gluten-Free Menu 2024

Here is the complete Dairy Queen gluten-free menu. Dairy Queen doesn’t have a ton of options when it comes to eating a fully gluten-free meal. We do wish they had some bread alternatives for their burgers and hot dogs.

However, Dairy Queen is famous and named for their delicious ice cream and other desserts, and there is a good amount of options here if you’re looking to satisfy your gluten-free sweet tooth.

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.

  1. The mixers used for the blizzards are not sanitized between uses. In addition, there is a tremendous amount of food particles in the air. Look at the uniforms of the employees; they are covered in it, especially during busy times. If you have celiac disease, don’t risk it! Stick with the packaged items.

    • Hey Brenda,
      Dairy Queen’s corporate site doesn’t have tacos even on their menu. But I think certain states might offer these? A quick search and it looks like some Dairy Queen’s in Texas have tacos. You would need to ask the local location if their tacos have gluten or not.

    • Hey Rae,
      Yes, their Country Gravy Dipping Sauce is gluten-free. We’ve added dressing, sauces, and dips to the post above. Thanks!

      • Just wanted to let you know, per the DQ Allergen menu, the Country Gravy Dipping Sauce has wheat in it. If it doesn’t, I wish they would update the information as it causes confusion.

        • Hey RM,
          Thanks, I can confirm this as well. DQ updated their nutrition menu regarding their gravy. Most likely it always had gluten in it and their website was wrong from the start. I’ve updated the menu above, removing the gravy.

  2. Hi Brian,
    I just want to say that I appreciate you putting this out there! I just assumed it was gluten-filled. Thank you! I haven’t been in 20+years. I’m going to give it a try! 😊
