    What I liked most about DQ as a kid (other than the soft serve ice cream dipped in the fast drying liquid chocolate) was that they would have this big rectangular box freezer full of push ups and other frozen treats. One of those with the sliding glass top. We’d each get to pick one frozen treat.

    Any competitor could get the kids to lobby their parents to stop at their hamburger joint if they’d just install one of those freezers.

    I seem to recall reading (many years ago) that the advertising for DQ in Texas is markedly different from the advertising in all the other states. Heaven knows, DQ is a fixture in a multitude of Texas towns.

    Although: last year Texas Monthly had an article about DQ franchisees pulling out of small towns in the Texas Panhandle, New Mexico and Oklahoma.

    There is a new show on FX/Hulu that is supposed to be set in Austin. Not only do they try to pass TSU off as the UT campus but then they go too far by committing the unforgiveable sin of faking a Whataburger meal (chick pulls sandwich out of bagged wrapped in FOIL!!! -- the horror of it all)

    FX and Hulu's 'A Teacher' got Texas wrong (again) and I can't let this go
