I think this was national Fast Food Freebie week this week–or at least it sure felt like it around here.
Since we’re always sticklers for free ice cream, we couldn’t miss out on free Haagen-Dazs. The new flavor they were giving out was really good and, surprisingly, there was almost no one at the Haagen-Dazs shop at the mall. And they even had this big sign right smack dab out in front:
I guess we’re just weird because we’d never walk by a sign like that and turn down an opportunity for free ice cream, especially when there was no wait. But I guess we’re not your typical shoppers or something because almost everyone else was walking straight by without even so much as a second glance.
The portions that Haagen-Dazs gave out were very generous–the size of a small cup or cone, which regularly costs $3.15. The girls loved it (Kaitlynn even got to taste her first few bites of ice cream) and I think Jesse and I enjoyed it even more! What a fun outing–all for free!
Last night, we all had sweet teas and free Southern-Style chicken sandwiches from McDonald’s. Yum! And since Taco Bell is right by McDonald’s, we also stopped in for a free Frutista with a $0.79 soft taco purchase. Altogether, the whole dinner cost us less than $4!
