Chain: Dairy Queen
Introduced: 1985  

The McFlurry, while delicious, can't stack up to Dairy Queen's Blizzard—it did it first, it did it best. All ice cream treats measure up against—and pale in comparison to—the DQ Blizzard. It's essentially smooth, whipped ice cream doing impressions of candies, pies, cakes, and cookies, and damn fine ones at that. If Dairy Queen had ice cream trucks drive around in the summer selling Blizzards to kids everywhere, they would monopolize the market. #COLDGAME
