During yesterday's game of Mall Trivia, we touched on Orange Julius. I don't think I've ever actually had an Orange Julius. So there are way more than three things I don't know about the storied franchise. But here are a few I found of interest.

"¢ Orange Julius is owned by Berkshire Hathaway.

"¢ Johnny Carson and Alan Shepard were presented with lifetime passes to Orange Julius in the 1960s.

"¢ The former Orange Julius logo resembled Arizona State's Sparky, a Sun Devil with a pitchfork. The slogan: "A Devilishly Good Drink." After threats of a lawsuit from ASU's alumni association, Orange Julius retired its mascot.
