Don’t Eat At Dairy Queen Until You Watch This

Don’t Eat At Dairy Queen Until You Watch This


Before you head to Dairy Queen and order yourself
a frozen treat, there are some things you should know. From the best days and times to visit, to
the tools you need to make your order easier, and even how you might score a free Blizzard,
these tips will help to ensure the best DQ experience ever. The gang from Stranger Things aren’t the only
people who spend time in the Upside Down. Dairy Queen employees do too! Dairy Queen is not afraid to make the claim
that their Blizzards are so thick that they can hold their place inside of the cup even
if it is turned upside down. So DQ has a promotion where employees at participating
locations are supposed to turn Blizzards upside down — and if they don’t, you get it free! When you head to Dairy Queen, you’re probably
not planning to order seaweed. Ice cream, yes. Seaweed? Not so much. But you might get some anyway. See, their soft serve has an ingredient called
carrageenan, which is derived from red seaweed. It’s FDA approved, and helps give the soft
serve a thicker consistency. And it’s not really unusual. “It’s a common ingredient used to thicken
everything, from milkshakes to baby foods.” But it also has been linked to gut irritation
and inflammation, so keep that in mind before you place your order. If you have a favorite Dairy Queen dish, you
might discover the unpleasant fact that your personal fave isn’t available at every Dairy
Queen you visit. That’s because there are over 2,000 different
franchisees who own more than 4,500 total stores across the country. And with so many different people running
things, there’s going to be some minor variations in the menu. This is particularly true when it comes to
regional dishes — Texas, for instance, has roughly 600 Dairy Queen locations, and many
offer menu items that aren’t available outside of the Lone Star State. Road trip, anyone? It’s ironic: during winter, there’s ice everywhere,
but people will do anything to escape it. During the summer, though, when you desperately
want ice, there’s none to be found — except at places like Dairy Queen. And DQ knows how much people look forward
to enjoying the warm temps and their delicious soft serve, which is why they welcome the
arrival of spring with their Free Cone Day promotion. On the first day of spring, you can enjoy
a free small vanilla cone at participating DQ and DQ Grill and Chill locations across
the United States. All they ask is that you also donate to charity
How “cool” is that? “It’s gotta be one of my favorite days of
the entire year!” “Favorite!” “Free! Free soft serve on a cone!” “Free soft serve on a cone!” Dairy Queen has been serving up delicious
dessert treats since 1940. But it’s not just a place to get soft serve. In 1958, Dairy Queen introduced its Brazier
stores, which were locations that served burgers and other food items along with the soft serve. That concept has become the modern Grill & Chill,
which also serves breakfast. But since no trip to DQ is complete without
some ice cream, many locations also offer a special Grill & Chill lunch combo that includes
an entree, fries, a drink and a sundae for just $5. “What?” “What?” “What?” “WHAT WHAT!!” Here’s a quick news flash: eating a ton of
ice cream is not the healthiest thing you can do. Dairy Queen has actually tried to make things
healthier from time to time with… well, poor results. In 1990, for instance, the chain introduced
a Frozen Yogurt option called the Breeze. “Now, you can get frozen yogurt at Dairy Queen. It’s the new Breeze frozen yogurt treat!” However, customers were still piling it high
with toppings, making it unhealthy anyway — and if you’re going to eat an unhealthy
dessert, why pick low fat fro-yo over ice cream? As a result, they discontinued the Breeze
in the year 2000 due to poor sales. “I really want to make a healthy low fat,
or non-fat, um…” “…Blizzard.” There are some things you can do, though. While there are no sugar-free soft serve options,
there are a few no-sugar-added items such as the Fudge Bar, Vanilla Orange Bar, and
the Chocolate Dilly Bar. And some menu items are better than others. At 230 calories and 7 grams of fat, a small
vanilla cone is one of the lightest options on the DQ menu, while peanut butter lovers
can have the small Peanut Butter Sundae instead of the much less healthy Peanut Buster Parfait. People who love Dairy Queen really love Dairy
Queen, which is why the Blizzard Fan Club loyalty program — which rewards frequent
eaters with sweet rewards — boasts over 4 million members And Dairy Queen also has a mobile app which
grants you discounts, provides directions to the nearest location, and allows you to
place you order ahead of time for an expedited ice cream experience. Now that’s hot. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Mashed videos about your favorite

  1. The upside down technique doesn’t work in Florida, when they make it, it works, when you receive it and try it yourself, it spills all over you. Then the employees say, your loss no free blizzard.

  2. I don't donate to child charities. I only donate to animal charities. Mainly pitbull and wolf rescues. In my opinion those are more important.

  3. THEN WHERE CAN I EAT, MASHED?!?!?! dont eat at kfc, dont eat at taco bell, dont eat at mcdonalds…. WHERE MASHED???? WHERE!!!!! DO I STARVE? DO MY KIDS STARVE? I CANT EVEN COOK CANNED SOUP! MY WIFE LEAVES FOR A WEEKEND AND COMES BACK TO A STACK OF PIZZA BOXES AND ASIAN TAKEOUT! YOU'RE FREAKIN RUINING IT FOR DADS EY!!!!!!

  4. i once was trying to take a picture with a blizzard upside down but then it fell on the table. it sucks that california doesn’t have a dairy queen. 🙁

  5. Carrageenan: FDA approved, but causes gut inflammation. Does anybody else see what's wrong? It's not just in Dairy Queen ice cream, but it's in pretty much all of the ice cream you find at the store
