It was advertised on their website and in television commercials:
Supposedly, it was to help promote goodwill with Wendy’s customers again — after the finger incident.
Sunday night, after our visit to the movies, we swung by Wendy’s for our free Frostys.
But then Jim got cold feet…
Yes, I married Mr. Nice Guy, who refuses to take advantage of ANYone… including national corporations like Wendy’s.
I know, I know, it wasn’t taking advantage of them if they OFFERED the free Frosty. But I must admit, I did feel kinda bad for wanting something for free from a company that was struggling to stay afloat.
We decided NOT to contribute to Wendy’s demise in the fast-food industry and chose instead to pay full price for our little Junior Frostys.
That’s just the way
we are Jim is… and I usually [reluctantly] follow.
Truth is, I don’t really like Frostys. Never have. They just don’t have much flavor, to me.
Jim, on the other hand, used to get them all the time when he was out & about on business trips. So this “Free Frosty” thing is likely to have a positive impact on him.
Perhaps he’ll be choosing the Wendy’s Frosty which is near our home, in lieu of making the long trek out to Cool Springs to purchase his all-time fave: a smoothie from Smoothie King!
I love my kitchen… and I like to cook. But my #1 requirement is that recipes have fewer than 7 ingredients (or arrive on my doorstep via a food delivery service). My absolute favorite thing about being in the kitchen is trying out new gadgets, cookware, and storage containers! I'm SUPER organized in the kitchen (and everywhere else) and I have every gadget I could possibly need neatly and compactly tucked away until I need it. I share only the simplest recipes (which is great for people who don't like to cook), along with time-saving food tips and cooking tricks (that will save you time and money). When I'm not cooking, cleaning, or organizing my kitchen… you can find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
