Modern freezers provide a happy alternative to old-fashioned ice-cream-making methods, such as stirring it by hand or milking it straight from genetically engineered ice cows. Delight in contemporary cookery with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of burgers and ice cream at Dairy King’s Breese and Trenton locations.
With a menu as dense as its straw-defeating shakes, Dairy King lovingly belabors over a wide assortment of appetite-appeasing delicacies. Wake up sleepy taste receptors with plates of jalapeño-decked philly-cheesesteak nachos ($4.25) or sample a dozen hot wings ($8.60) to send spirits soaring. Diners can dig into a bevy of burgers, ranging from a single patty ($1.65) to a double swiss bacon burger ($3.85), combining the hearty favors of beef with the portability of compressed beef. Savory dishes receive sweet goodbye kisses from one of the 40 flavors of classic shakes from butterscotch to Butterfingers to buttered butter ($3.20–$3.80), and spoons swoon over Concretes, tongue-tickling ice-cream concoctions crammed with treats from waffle-cone bits to brownies ($3.50–$4.10).
By walking into Dairy King's charming interior, or gliding into the convenient drive-thru, patrons are able to escape the stifling, dairy-less summer with a scoopful, slurpful, or faceful of drinkable dessert.
