Would You Like Fries With That?

       Years ago, I pulled up to the drive-in window at Dairy Queen and ordered my favorite, a Blizzard.  I chuckled when the order taker asked, “Would you like fries with that?”  Personally, I don’t think fries and ice cream make a great (or even palatable) combination, so I declined her generous offer and drove away with my Blizzard.

  • Pizza Hut sells beer in many of its locations, with a handful even offering brews in delivery and carry-out locations.
