Americans are growing more and more frustrated with woke corporations.
No matter how loudly consumers send the message that they don’t want any political agendas forced down their throats countless major corporations have refused to take a hint.
And now Dairy Queen just became the latest to shoot itself in the foot after one major announcement made consumers go bonkers.
Rumors have been swirling about a major change to Dairy Queen’s menu, and fans of the fast-food chain are not happy.
Miranda spills the beans
After a DQ employee named Miranda posted a TikTok on May 18 about a menu change at the ice cream chain, social media users went nuts as the video went viral.
She claimed the popular red cherry-dipped cone would be leaving the menu soon.
“I don’t know when, or if it’s returning, but Dairy Queen is discontinuing their cherry cone dip,” Miranda said. “It’s already sold out in our warehouse, so once we deplete the inventory in the store, we’ll be sold out until further notice.”
After all, the cherry-dipped cone is an old school summer favorite of millions of Dairy Queen’s customers.
Dairy Queen admits the truth
As the rumor spread on social media, Dairy Queen finally confirmed the sad news to the intrepid journalists over at the Food Network.
The company gave one simple statement that hit consumers like brain freeze on a hot day.
“At this time, the Cherry Dipped Cone at Dairy Queen is being discontinued,” the company bluntly wrote in a statement.
Dairy Queen followed up that statement by commenting to The New York Post that “while it’s great to see our fans’ love for the Cherry Dipped Cone, we are always innovating our menus to showcase new and delicious flavors.”
“Fans can keep an eye on our social channels for the latest and greatest on flavor offerings for the iconic DQ dipped cone,” the company added.
But the move simply did not go over well with Dairy Queen regulars who like the classic taste of the cherry dipped cone, and seemingly aren’t very interested in new menu concepts.
“DAIRY QUEEN IS GETTING RID OF THE CHERRY DIPPED CONE???” one customer beamoned on Twitter. “Year ruined.”

“Dairy Queen is getting rid of the cherry cone dip I’m about to riot,” another disgruntled customer wrote.

“Why are fast food chains getting rid of the best items,” a third DQ customer commented on TikTok.
Trader Joe’s shoppers were left distraught after the store got rid of fan-favorite items, including mini cannolis, creamy salted cashew butter, and margarita mix.
And Chick-fil-A decided to say goodbye to its side salad, only to change course and keep it on the menu after a huge outcry from customers.
With many Americans turning on numerous popular brands – like Target, Disney, North Face, and Bud Light – for their insistence on going all-in on forcing woke insanity on consumers, one would think companies would come to the conclusion that unless you absolutely have to, now is not exactly the best time to make any decisions that could turn consumers against your brand.
Because as it turns out, working class Americans are willing to take action, not just to push back against woke extremism, but also to fight back against drastic menu changes.
