If you order a Blizzard at any of Dairy Queen's locations, there a good chance that your server will hand it to you upside down. And if you think that's a bizarre branding tactic, you can credit that to a 14-year-old boy from St. Louis named Steve Gamber. Back in the day, Gamber used to frequent a local ice cream stand close in proximity to a DQ owned by Sam Temperato. Every day when ordering from the ice cream stand, Gamber would request that the shake be made thicker than usual, resulting in the stand's owner, Ted Drewes Jr., one day serving him a shake so thick that he could turn it upside down without risking the ice cream spilling out of the cup. In 1983, Temperato took Drewes' idea over to DQ execs - and the rest is history.

6. DQ used to sell frozen yogurt

And you probably don't remember it because it never really caught on. It was around for a small chunk of time in the '90s before being removed from the menu because of extremely low demand.

The chain may have gotten its start in Joliette, IL, but Texas is home to the most DQ locations. The state has over 6,000 stores - and we dare you to try and hit them all.
