The Dakota Drug Co. In North Dakota Is One Of The Last Places In The World To Get A Real Whirl-A-Whip
Whirl-a-whips are all but a thing of the past. These special ice cream machines were part of many soda fountains and shops back in the day, but as those died out, so did the Whirl-a-whip. Luckily for North Dakotans, there is still one left – and it’s one of the last remaining, still-operating machines of its kind in the world. Grab one of these historic and iconic treats at this small town drug store for yourself:
The Fountain, located inside the Dakota Drug Co., is open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Mondays through Fridays, and from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM on Saturdays. Visit their Facebook page for more information.
