Get Your Free Chicken and Caffeine on May 15th
This Thursday there will be two nation-wide promotions offering treats to customers of McDonalds and Dunkin’ Donuts. While I’m a fan of chicken and waffles, I’ve never done chicken and coffee. Here’s the skinny on some high-calorie munchies…
McDonalds – These guys have been touting their new Southern Style Chicken products in a big way this past couple of weeks. Offering both a Southern Style Chicken biscuit and a Southern Style Chicken Sandwich, they seem to have all their bases covered. They have also been handing out coupons like mad, putting them in Sunday coupon inserts and the shipping boxes of all my Amazon.com orders.
They are hoping to introduce the all-white meat sandwiches to the nation in the May 15th promotion, offering a free biscuit from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and a free sandwich from 10:30 a.m. until 7 p.m. with the purchase of any medium or large beverage. (My hubby says to go for the jumbo iced tea, which is very cheap, and not bad for a Southern Sweet Tea knock-off.)
Dunkin’ Donuts – (Sigh.) Why can’t there be one of these stores in my area. I love the coffee offered on grocer’s shelves, and would die to get my hands on the free iced coffees being given away on May 15th. From 10 a.m. until 10 p.m., the coffee guru will be handing out 16 oz. iced coffees anyway you like them (limit one per person per store.) Facebook users can RSVP to the event , which is perfect for letting your friends know which one of the 9 flavors you plan on trying: French Vanilla, Toasted Almond, Raspberry, Hazelnut, Coconut, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Caramel, and Blueberry) or create your own flavor by combining 2-3 flavors.
So go grab a chicken sandwich, wash it down with an iced coffee, and fast for supper. With 435 calories and 19 grams of fat for the sandwich alone, these fabulously free eats will be a special treat for our family. But I do love chicken…..
