LOL, seasonal Dairy Queens. That's a first.

They used to sell dogs here at least when the two guys were in the DQ commercials. The two guys even had a commercial for their super duper everything dogs. I have not been to DQ in 2 decades. Of course I won't go to any fast food place and haven't for 2 decades and with restaurants I am very picky. Don't like having boogers in my food!

LOL! Glad you can corroborate what I was talking about. That is what I meant by a strong, sexy voice. He DID have more bass in his voice in the version I fell in love with.

He sang his composition, and he DEFINITELY was NOT the singer of he DQ song.

ETA: listening to it here it somehow doesn't sound quite the same as it did on my TV back in 2014. But I like the jingle anyway even now. Someone wrote in the comments of this video the singer's name and where he lives. The comment was from only 2 months ago.
Man what a deal that was back then!

We never went back there but were there (on the same road) a few weeks back and they were open. We went for a lobster roll across the street.

I never eat hot prepared food at DQ anymore. Probably haven't in 25 years. I'll stop in for a cold treat occasionally. Never choose them when on an out-of-state road trip.
The DQ in Nebraska City is 'treats, no eats' year 'round... or at least it was the one time I went in there maybe a couple years ago. Judging from the milk shake I ordered, it's probably best they don't try cooking anything.

DQ quality varies widely between locations. I’ve had some where the food is good, and others where even the ice cream is awful.

My bad, you're right! Don't watch much TV so for me commercials are always old ones. LOL

This was true where I grew up in Wyoming as well. That DQ isn’t there anymore, but back when it was still there it closed for the winter.

Same here.
Our nearby DQ is very good, fortunately.
