What are the most caloric items at Dairy Queen?

Dairy Queen fans should rejoice -- the restaurant chain announced that it will kick off spring with a Free Cone Day on March 20. Customers will be able to enjoy a free vanilla soft-serve cone.

Since its first store opened in 1940, DQ has prided itself on its frozen treats. But the chain now offers a bevy of options, ranging from breakfast burritos to bacon burgers. For the health-minded customers out there, HealthGrove, a health and nutrition data site by Graphiq, ranked the items at Dairy Queen from least to most caloric.

Surprisingly, when it comes to calories, no dessert item makes the top 10. Instead, DQ's breakfast Country Platters dominate the most caloric spots. The Country Platter with Bacon and Country Platter with Sausage are the second and third most caloric dishes, each containing more than 1,000 calories. However, the top place goes to the six-piece chicken strip basket, with a whopping 1,250 calories, 61 grams of fat and 3,190 milligrams of sodium.

In terms of desserts, some of the most caloric offerings are the Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Smash and Salted Caramel Truffle Blizzards, with 810 and 780 calories apiece. While that's quite a bit less than the chicken strips, both desserts have significantly higher sugar content. To see the full list of DQ items ranked by calories, click here.
