Dairy Queen stops making their own fry sauce and blames Obamacare


The picture below is from a Dairy Queen location in Washington state. It indicates that due to the nutritional labeling requirements under Obamacare, they will now be serving pre-packaged bulk-made  fry sauce instead of the sauce they previously made in the restaurant. Additionally, they are discontinuing their Habanero sauce and Buffalo sauce which they also made in the restaurant. The letter also seemingly indicates that customers getting takeout will be charged for the pre-made sauce.

Have you seen a letter like this at your local Dairy Queen or any other restaurants?
