A Blizzard in Texas
I’ve never thought of Dairy Queen as being particularly Texan (the soft serve chain started in Joliet, IL). However, the state does have its own dedicated URL and an ode, “Dairy Queen: Small-Town Texas Institution” in The Atlantic’s food blog today.
DQ didn’t mean much to me until I moved to NYC and felt their absence (the nearest location is just across the Hudson in Jersey City). If I happen to encounter one in a far flung location, I usually have to order something. In Bangkok, their green tea MooLatte (ordinary caramel on the right) cooled me down and pumped me with enough sugar to continue on my arduous mall journey.
I only regret not trying the mango sticky rice sundae.
