Many fast-food restaurants have their signatures. It could be a famously named sandwich, a dessert, or even a toy. Some believe in the size of the portion. Others believe in the size of the menu.

There are trademark colors. And, several have objects in their marketing that stand out along with a few you get with your order. Take this one for instance.

Sure it's a spoon. A long RED spoon. What do you do with it? What do you eat with it? More importantly, at what restaurant do you find them?

I'd like to think that my first menu selection at this joint was a Mr. Misty slush. Never used the big red spoon, just a straw, sucking it down fast for a brain freeze.

You may have started with a hot fudge sundae. Or if you're much younger, the now-famous Blizzard.

Well, you should have guessed by now that the big red spoon is found at the new Sioux Falls DQ Grill & Chill on Marion Road.

Here Are 13 of Your Favorite Fried Foods

Some foods need a fryer, others should never go near one. Forget baking. We are so obsessed with eating deep-fat fried foods. And every time you turn around, there's another menu filled with most of the items that have bathed in a hot-boiling fat vat.

There seems to be no end to what a deep fat fryer can cook. And we prove it every day with our love of crispy, greasy, burnt-tongue, salty foods.

I won't argue that an order of onion rings or sweet potato fries is the best marriage partner to a burger. Especially when they are made from scratch. So, pile them high.

What are some other delights that need the fryer?
