They will bring back memories of that wonderful place. We tried using more expensive hot dogs, but they plump up too much and the coating falls off, so just go with cheap all-beef franks.

That reciepe is close but not correct, my mother who was the last owner of the Dairy Pride has the original recipe from the original owners and was sworn to secrecy of the recipe not even my brother and I can have it until she passes. I will say that this one posted (that Darbys and the newly closed golf course that closed, made)is very close, there is a difference in the consistancy batter and taste
anyone that worked there

I actually worked there when they first opened up and I know the receipe as well. The actually bbq receipe above is a little different as well. But similiar.

I grew up when a quarter would get me a soda + Bar-B-Que Kwiki. Pawnee Lynn Talley's Mom worked w/owners + Malto Meal Cereal was an ingredient in the original recipe!

I'd like to apologize to the original owners, or whomever was sworn to secrecy, but we made these for my Dad (he was a a Kwiki addict back in the day) and he was transported back in time. I, too, remember the little pieces of crispy batter that clung to the fried, saucy hotdog; dipping in the pool of sauce; and I remember the scale/fortune-telling machine at the Dairy Pride. The recipe may not be exactly what was served, but it will certainly taste similar.

I can't speak for anyone else, but what's the purpose of keeping a recipe such a secret, when other people could enjoy it, or you could possibly even make some money from it? Corn dogs SUCK! Kwiki's were heaven in a little red and white cardboard tray, and we, the people, want the real thing! For all you who know someone with the secret recipe, PLEASE, share it or sell it, so it doesn't die.

I lived about two blocks from the Dairy Price on Wade Street. My Grandfather knew J.E. Gibson very well and I was around J.E. on many occasions and later worked on his car when I was a mechanic. He told me once that he hope that the francise would be sold to someone that would keep kwikis alive forever. Too bad that no one has keep it going. Maybe the owner of the recipe should sell the recipe on line. It is far to good to just disappear

In 1952 I bought a franchise to buy Kwiki mixture for hot dogs. I got a cooker,sticks and the sleeve to serve them in. I was the first FROSTOP ROOT BEER DRIVE INN IN INDIANA LOCATED IN Petersburg Indiana. I took my Dog House to the local fair and sold 5000 Kwiki Dogs In 3 days at 25 cents each. I sold thousands over the next 5 years. Never have I found any corn dog to compare. I wish I could still buy the original mixture.

My grandparents were the original owners of Dairy Pride-Marion and Dora Boulware-kept it all secret-the bbq sauce was my grandmothers recipe-after my grandfathers death in the 1959-it was sold to Monglers and then Gibsons-none of us have the recipe-but know that the hot dog had to be skinny all-beef dogs-made the recipe as listed-not quite-bbq sauce way off-no bbq sauce in her recipe-but did use brown sugar and dried mustard.

I was the the kid who made the Mexico Ledger in the early 80's for eating a boat load of those addictive Kwiki's. A source of pride for my grandmother and the Kallenbach Clan. I believe it was a record at the time. If not, just let me go on believing that, please! I truly loved that place and am saddened to this day that it's not around. After all these decades, I can literally still taste them if I try! Thank you to those individuals and families that kept it going for the time it was around. I've done several useless searches over the years on "corn dogs and BBQ sauce" - nothing. I google the obvious (tonight while reminiscing with my wife) "dairy pride" and presto! Thank you for the recipe, even if it's perfect. I'm going to show these Floridians a little of my MO pride (that is, if I can duplicate the above recipe and that's a big if - my wife is leaving this one up to me!)

I also remember Dairy Pride...on our way home from school Fridays our bus driver Elmer use to stop to let us get a treat...still remember the taste and texture of the Kwiki...after they closed (VERY sad day!) when I came to visit I would place an order at Darby's to bring home the Kwiki to share with my friends...have tried to make them but the above posts are correct...I still haven't found "the secret"...

I miss Kwikis!! I visit this thread from time to time to see if anyone has updated the recipe. Would love it if those of you who have tried it provide some feedback on how close it is to the original, even it it's not perfect.
