Summertime means ice cream. Dairy Queen is one of the biggest competitors in the ice cream game. The

menu ranges from burgers, chicken tenders, dilly bars, and blizzards to a plain old ice cream cone.

The first ever Dairy Queen was built in Joliet, Illinois in 1940. The first Dairy Queen began by selling plain old ice cream, nothing fancy, and in 1949 DQ introduced malts and shakes onto their menus. In 1951 banana splits were introduced to the menu and then in 1955, the dilly bar was released. Later in 1958, Dairy Queen began to turn into a restaurant by introducing all their hot foods.

International Dairy Queen Inc. is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Through its subsidiaries, IDQ develops, licenses and services a system of more than 6,800 locations in the United States, Canada, and more than 25 other countries.

For this experiment, I went to both of the Dairy Queens near Sartell. There’s one in Sauk Rapids near the Sauk Rapids fire station. That one I went too first which basically feels like home because I have gone there many times for many different reasons. They run it well, and the customer service is good for how quickly they go through customers. This time that I went I bought a medium Butterfinger blizzard. When I got it they did tip my cup upside down. Overall 10/10! It’s a place to go to when you don’t have a lot of money.  I spent $5.85 for the blizzard.

The next Dairy Queen that I went too was the one located in St. Cloud off

Highway 10. This one I went through the drive-through for, and it took 20 minutes for me to get my order placed and another 10 to get my ice cream. There was a really long line in the drive-through.  I got a plain vanilla cone and a chocolate dilly bar. The people working weren’t very nice but the ice cream remains a 10/10. Total I spent $7.63 for the two items.

Overall Dairy Queen is a very good place to go whether it’s for dinner or just a treat, they never disappoint.
