Default Best soft serve ice cream

Now some of the pictures here are not appetizing to me but when I travel I make an extra effort to hit non-Dairy Queen soft-serve places, especially if they have that hard dipped coating.
Now the one they mention in Minn. is in White Bear Lake which they call a small town but in reality is just sub-burb of Twin Cities and is probably car dealership central.
Last time I was there at a dealer ship all you say N, S, E , W was other car dealers, it is not a small town by any stretch of the imagination.

Linda likes the chocolate dipped cones at Dairy Queen, while I like their Blizzards.
Their soft ice cream may not be as sugary as some, but it's our favorite.

As for ice cream in general?

Nothing, but variety is the spice of life.
I can go to a Dairy Queen in any state in a dozens of places, these listed are most one of one.

A gent opened a DQ type store in a truly small town eight or nine miles from here a few years back.
He built a new building on a refurbished town lot.
Well within a couple of years, that building was closed and he was renting a space attached to a Taco Johns.

Outside of the story of today's youts being worthless and lazy for hired help; the machine he bought to make cones broke down, it came from Germany and he could not get parts because the company had gone out of business.
When it rains it pours, it is totally closed now.

Custard Cup in Danville, IL or Champaign, IL.

5 generations of my family have been enjoyed those frosty dips.

I remember a hundred years ago when I was a kid and we lived at Quantico dad would take us to a place called Johnson's Frozen Custard....


Now since my surgery all I can do is remember how good ice cream is.

Culvers frozen custard. It's big here in WI and spreading out fast.
