Confectionery decorators adorn a regular sundae with the customer’s choice of toppings, including chocolate chips, blueberries, pineapple, and an optional set of throw pillows ($3.99). Spoon paladins can tame temperamental tongues with pacifying bites of a banana split ($4.49). Or experience the preferred drink of whippersnappers with a drug-store-style soda that floods mouths with sudsy carbonation to the tune of Perry Como’s greatest hits ($3.49).

On a warm August day in 1938, a father and son unveiled the first sample of what was to become Dairy Queen, selling 1,600 samples on the first day, a feat as unheard of as a dragon that breathes ice. Its ensuing prolific expansion was fueled by its frozen treats, which propelled the dessert shop from 100 stores in 1947 to 1,446 in 1950. Today, their dessert recipes remain largely unchanged, and Dairy Queen has added hearty grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and fried chicken to its menu. Dairy Queen's enormous dessert menu boasts treats ranging from soft-serve cones and blizzards filled with cookies to takeaway ice-cream sandwiches and cakes.
Kettle & Kernel channels corner candy stores of old, handcrafting each gourmet-popcorn creation and decadent confection with care.

Luscious fudge ($12 per pound) lures biters into a satisfied lull, allowing a bombardment of sweet, salty popcorn balls ($1–$3) and a hail of hand-wrapped caramels ($12). Kettle & Kernel's Horsey Munch ($6–$36) bridges the gap between dinner and dessert with toasted cashews, pecans, and caramel corn drenched with white chocolate.
