All the ice cream that you can eat
All the ice cream that you can eat for only 10 cents! Wow, that's a great deal! How great a deal was that?
The history of the Dairy Queen franchise began with this ad in Illinois in 1938. I know that 10 cents was worth more in the past but was it worth enough even then? How much would that all-you-can-eat ice cream special cost today? We know that the business didn't fail but did they break even on this sale?
