The TikTok video, which currently has more than four million views, shared the sad news of the discontinuation of the popular cherry-dipped cones.

DAIRY QUEEN GETTING RID OF THE CHERRY DIPED THROAT??? Year ruined.
Dairy Queen says the cherry-dipped cones may return sometime in the future
The cherry-dipped cones, which have been sold on the chain’s menu for more than five years on an on-off basis, have been one of the most sought-after flavors. As of now, locations around the country may be serving customers the last batches of the cherry-dipped cones, but once they’re sold out, the popular flavor will be gone until further notice. The chain said they “may return sometime in the near future,” but there was no confirmation of that.
For the uninitiated, the cherry-dipped cones made with the chain’s classic soft serve ice cream. Dipped in the delicious Cherry Red candy topping, the popular cones have been available on the chain’s menu for over five years. While some places served it for a limited time, others never took it off the menu.
However, it now appears that the era of the cherry-dipped cones is finally coming to an end with the announcement of their discontinuation.

As expected, fans did not take the news of the strike lightly. While some were very saddened by this decision, others seemed at a loss for words.
@DairyQueen I see no reason to discontinue cherry dipped cone. Not happy

They no longer have the cherry dipped cone at Dairy Queen. ☹️
While it may be just another flavor on the chain’s menu, the cherry-dipped cones may have been an escape for some, and for others it may have been a way to share special moments with their loved ones.
dairy queen cherry dipped cone is my comfort food
The biggest decision that day is where you’ll meet your best friend: Dairy Queen for a cherry-dipped cone or the Anderson Rexall Drug soda fountain for a Green River. twitter.com/jzux/status/16…
it is saturday morning in the summer and you are 10 years old. you get out of bed, pour yourself a big bowl of cereal, and watch VH1 music videos with your siblings until it’s time to ride your bike. you have no idea how much an apartment costs. there are rocket pops in the freezer and life is good
@DairyQueen you ruined the glue that holds the fabric of cold creamy happiness together by stopping the best ice cream treat in existence, the #cherrydippedcone. Might as well cancel the blizzard and take every ounce of joy out of us.
Lucky fans across the country may still be able to grab a cherry-dipped cone from one of the last batches that may be available at select locations. However, once exhausted, the cherry-dipped cones will be gone forever. It can no longer be denied that the era of the cherry-dipped cones has finally come to an end.
However, fans can still add some sweetness to their days by trying other popular flavors.
