About Dairy Queen (from Wikipedia)
Dairy Queen, often abbreviated DQ, is a chain of soft serve and fast food restaurants owned by International Dairy Queen, Inc, which also owns Orange Julius and Karmelkorn. The name “Dairy Queen” is taken from the name of their soft serve product, which the company refers to as “Dairy Queen” or “DQ”. The first Dairy Queen store opened in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois. The company’s corporate offices are located in Edina, Minnesota. In 2016 Dairy Queen had 6,700 locations.
A popular Dairy Queen item is the Blizzard, which is soft-serve mechanically blended with mix-in ingredients such as sundae toppings and/or pieces of cookies, brownies, or candy. It has been a staple on the menu since its introduction in 1985, a year in which Dairy Queen sold 100 million Blizzards. Popular Blizzard flavors include: Oreo Cookies, mint Oreo, chocolate chip cookie dough, M&M’s (Smarties in Canada),Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Heath bar, and Butterfinger.
