RALSTON, Neb. -- Billionaire Warren Buffett isn't just Berkshire Hathaway's chairman and CEO. He's also the chief salesman.

Buffett visited a Dairy Queen in Ralston, Neb., Monday evening to serve up the restaurant chain's new S'mores Blizzard flavor that will be available nationwide June 1. Then he ate ice cream for the cameras.

Berkshire owns Minneapolis-based Dairy Queen, so Buffett's always happy to talk about his favorite treats.

Dairy Queen CEO John Gainor presented Buffett with a jersey labeling him the restaurant's No. 1 fan. Buffett also wore his Dairy Queen tie Monday.

Gainor says it's nice to have a boss who's so willing to help promote Dairy Queen's products.

Omaha, Neb.-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc. owns more than 80 companies, including insurance, railroad, utility, manufacturing and retail businesses.
