Have you ever craved something really badly
or had a feeling of nostalgia when picking
up some drive thru treats?
Are your favorite fast food sweets the classics
or the limited editions that bring back fond
Whichever the case, here is our list of the
top 10 fast food desserts.
Chocolate Chip Soft Baked Cookie – McDonald’s
What better way to finish off your Big Mac
than with a little sweetness – maybe a chocolate
The most classic American cookie is served
at the most classic fast food joint, the one
with the golden arches.
Who knew that Ronald would be serving some
of the most delicious baked treats?
The batter in these cookies is the perfect
combination of chewy and sweet and however
they do it, they always seem to have the perfect
ratio of chocolate chips to cookie batter.
Isn’t that the worst when the cookie either
has too many or not enough chocolate chips?
McDonald’s will not disappoint.
Ever since McCafe was introduced, it seems
like McDonald’s is coming out with fantastic
baked goods similar to their café competitors
and these chocolate chip cookies are the best.
McCafe also offers brownies, muffins and croissants
but the cookies are definitely the standout.
Another thing going for these cookies is that
they are just small enough, so you can probably
get away with having one or ten… maybe 20?
Who’s really keeping count anyways?
Chocolate Frosty – Wendy’s
Nothing says road trip like salty fries dipped
in chocolate frosty goodness.
Is it a milkshake?
Is it ice cream?
Is it a smoothie?
It’s probably none of the above but it’s
the most delicious frozen chocolate concoction
to gulp down after (or during) your Baconator
lunch at Wendy’s.
There’s no better feeling than finishing
the fries and then diving in to drink whatever
liquid is left at the bottom of that paper
So straw or spoon, whether you enjoy your
Frosty on its own or with your salty fries,
there’s a good chance that Wendy’s will
be serving up this classic chocolate dessert
for years to come.
This is truly a staple for the fry-frosty
dippers of the world.
And if you’re craving a frosty, you’re
You’re craving the nostalgia of those square
So whether it be the chocolate or vanilla
Frosty, Wendy’s definitely knows what keeps
their loyal customers coming back – this frozen
And if you can’t make up your mind between
chocolate or vanilla, why not ask for both
and make it a twisty Frosty?
Cake Pop – Starbucks
Ok, so Starbucks is known for being a great
American coffee shop, but ironically, they
also make what is arguably the most unique
dessert available at any fast food restaurant.
What menu item are we talking about?
The infamous Starbucks Cake pops of course!
Yes, they are exactly what they sound like,
essentially cake, in lollipop form.
There are many flavours to choose from on
the menu currently, including: Chocolate,
Strawberry, Frosted Doughnut and yes, there’s
even a Birthday Cake flavor.
Some may argue that other Starbucks sweets
may be more deserving of a spot on this list,
but that’s probably because they haven’t
tried these cake pops yet!
While yes, we know the idea of a cake lollipop
may sound a little weird, trust us.
Once you bite into the hard candy chocolate
exterior of one these pops and make it to
that chewy inner cake layer, you’ll forget
however weird it may have seemed, as you’ll
be enjoying one of the best fast food desserts
So next time your at Starbucks, still stuck
trying to decide what treat to grab to go
along with that Frappucino, give the Cake
Pops a try, your tastebuds will not be disappointed!
Marbled Brownie Cookie – Domino’s
The marbled brownie cookie from Domino’s
is exactly that – a brownie and a cookie.
You don’t have to decide between the two
and for those who hate making decisions on
what to eat or what to order, this is the
most wonderful choice for your post-pizza
We’ve all been out with a friend and wanted
to share a dessert but were unable to decide
what to order.
Well this dessert should definitely please
That being said, if you’re sharing this
dessert, you might need to call dibs on which
piece you want.
Depending if you’re craving more brownie
or more cookie.
Either way, this dessert tops all pizza joint
If you want even more decadence, either warm
it up and/or add some vanilla ice cream.
This is one of the few desserts that would
probably be just as good the next day as leftovers
(like there’s any chance of there being
leftovers to take home)!
Just pop those suckers into the oven or microwave
and heat them up.
That is, if you don’t eat them all in one
sitting of course.
They’re fantastic for sharing if you’re
hanging out with friends or just as good if
you eat them yourself.
The best part about this dessert is that Domino’s
cuts it up into squares, just like they pre-slice
They’re so thoughtful!
The pieces are pretty even too so hopefully
you won’t be fighting with your friends
over a slice of this fast food dessert.
Cinnamon Twists – Taco Bell
A cult classic that has lasted throughout
the ages, these airy, sugary twists will bring
you back to your 1990s Cinnamon Toast Crunch
cereal eating glory days.
These light, crunchy and fluffy cinnamon sugar
twists are the perfect balance of sweetness
and spice without being too overwhelming.
The familiar cinnamon crunch will put a smile
on the face of any cinnamon lover.
Whether ordered on their own or eaten after
chowing down your favorite burrito, it’s
the best way to get a light sweet dessert
without the food coma (the same can’t be
promised if you’ve just had the crunch wrap
and fries supreme though).
What makes this dessert choice so great is
that it is nothing like other fast food sweets.
So if you’re looking for something a little
unique, and maybe a little lighter, Taco Bell
has you covered.
If you have a sweet tooth but aren’t feeling
very hungry they’re also a fantastic choice.
The Cinnamon Twists are as much of a crunchy
snack as they are a dessert.
So if you want to eat them at 8am on your
way to work with a coffee or at 10pm while
binging on Netflix, anytime is the right time
for Cinnamon Twists from Taco Bell!
Hershey’s Pie – Burger King
Although Burger King may not be the king of
fast food desserts, they do have some pretty
If you haven’t tried the Hershey’s pie
from Burger King, what are you waiting for?
If you’ve got a craving for some artificially
flavored, creamy milk chocolatey goodness,
this is the pie for you.
This sweet, creamy pie is probably comparable
to a chocolate mousse, but sweeter, if that’s
possible, and in a pie shape.
There’s a chocolate layer and white chocolate
layer of cream on top of a chocolatey crust
topped with chocolate chips and chocolate
fudge and whipped cream.
Is there any real chocolate in this?
Does it have that Hershey’s chocolate taste?
Is it full of sugar?
Needless to say this is not for the faint
hearted, but chocolate lovers will go to heaven
when they try it.
One cool thing about this dessert is that
it comes in a cute little triangle shaped
box and is quite large compared to those handheld
fast food pies.
It’s a great way to carry it when you have
leftovers, but then again, who would possibly
Anyone else guilty of scraping the last bites
off the side of the box?
Nothing wrong about that.
Root Beer Float – A&W
You can in fact eat your dessert and drink
A&W’s root beer float is their branded root
beer soda with a big scoop of vanilla ice
cream on top.
The creamy ice cream melts away and mixes
with the top layer of the root beer.
That being said, the best way to eat (and
drink) this dessert would be to mix it all
together to have an even mixture of vanilla
and root beer yumminess.
It’s probably recommended to mix it with
a spoon since the ice cream is really thick
You can decide whether the best way to consume
this is with a spoon or a straw, but either
way there’s no float like an A&W Root Beer
There’s just something about that root beer
sweetness added with the vanilla that makes
this dessert a sugar fiend’s dream.
Even though other restaurants may try making
floats with other sodas or ice cream flavors,
the A&W Root Beer Float is the OG.
What makes this dessert even better is when
you eat it at the restaurant, it gets served
in a frosty mug.
Fast food places aren’t usually known for
using glassware but A&W’s signature trick
of using a cold, frosted mug makes their root
beer that much more refreshing and sweet.
Alright, it probably doesn’t make it sweeter
but it definitely tastes that much more refreshing
from the mug.
That being said, if you see the frosted mug
and are intimidated by the size, there’s
nothing that says you can’t share it with
They’d also more than likely put leftovers
in a paper cup for after too.
Pro-tip: put a glass or mug in your freezer
at home before using it to get that same frosty
If you do decide to make this yourself, just
don’t get too excited and give yourself
a brain freeze.
It’s definitely a chilly treat.
Dilly Bar – Dairy Queen
Some may argue that Dairy Queen is really
the royalty of fast food treats and they’re
I mean the word queen is right there in the
The dilly bar is probably the most basic dessert
on this list, soft serve ice cream dipped
in chocolate on a stick.
That being said, there’s something alluring
about its circular shape and the little swirl
in the middle that makes it that much more
appetizing compared to some other ice cream
Don’t ask how the shape improves the taste.
It just does!
The shape is more of a novelty but it’s
what Dairy Queen is truly known for.
Is it the same soft serve ice cream they put
in their cones and sundaes?
Do they taste the same?
Think about how many desserts were upgraded
by simply putting them on a stick: cake, cookies,
ice cream, even savory foods seem to taste
better when put on a stick.
Of all fast food desserts on a stick, this
one is the most deserving to be on this top
The Dilly Bar tastes like pure happiness,
compared to all the imitators that taste like
just regular happiness.
Don’t you want some pure happiness in your
Well the DQ Dilly Bar could be the answer.
Chocolate Lava Crunch Cake – Domino’s
Is there a restaurant you’re thinking of
that serves your favorite lava cake?
Well believe it or not, you can get lava cake
delivered from a pizza joint near you!
This chocolate lava crunch cake has such a
rich, chocolate flavor you’ll feel like
you got delivery from your favorite fancy
The box it comes in is really cute too, it’s
like a mini pizza box for your dessert.
It’s served warm and when you put a spoon
into it, the chocolate lava oozes – insert
slow motion shot right here.
The name is perfect for it because the outer
layer is crispy from being baked and the inside
is smoother than the butter on your sliced
bread in the morning.
Somehow Domino’s manages to get the perfect
crunch-to-smoothness ratio every time.
How they do it?
If you’re really craving chocolate, like
real chocolate and not that artificial milk
chocolate flavor, this is your dessert.
It’s a very rich cake, and you’ll either
get addicted or go straight into a sugar coma
(100 percent worth it though).
It’s definitely what chocolate dreams are
This one’s probably the highest quality
chocolate dessert in the fast food game, when
compared to the competition on this list.
It is really rich though, so keep that in
mind when eating it so you don’t get sick.
If you love chocolate like Kanye loves Kanye,
this is the dessert for you.
Oreo Cookie Jar Blizzard – Dairy Queen
The Almighty Blizzard takes the top spot on
this list of fast food desserts.
Although some may disagree on the flavor choice,
there’s no denying how satisfying it is
every time the dairy queen worker flips that
cup upside down to ensure the ice cream doesn’t
Although Dairy Queen sells a lot of the soft
serve cones and sundaes, the Blizzard is arguably
the best fast food ice cream treat out there.
Worth noting is the fact that there are way
too many flavors to choose from (problem?
I think not).
The Oreo Cookie Jar Blizzard is a mixture
of Oreo pieces, chocolate chip cookie pieces,
and fudge blended with the vanilla soft serve.
It’s basically a cookie lover’s dream
in a bright blue cup.
The best part about getting a Blizzard at
Dairy Queen is their size choices.
Since the blizzard is very dense, you can
decide whether a mini will satisfy your sweet
craving or if you need the large size to really
enjoy the Blizzard ice cream experience to
The Blizzard is a staple at Dairy Queen and
compared to the novelty Dilly Bar that was
mentioned earlier, you get to customize it
depending on your mood and taste.
And really, what’s better than being able
to build your own ice cream?
Technically it’s not really a build your
own since you pick one of the flavors listed
but there are so many flavor options and combinations
that it feels like you’re creating your
own specialty just for you.
If the Oreo Cookie Jar Blizzard doesn’t
tickle your fancy, there are plenty of choices
to add into your Blizzard such as cheesecake,
various chocolate bars and brownie pieces.
If your sweet tooth is especially big, try
the Royal Blizzards which have sweet centers
like strawberries or peanut butter.
There’s just no wrong choice when it comes
to the Blizzard, the king, or should we say
queen, of fast food ice cream.
