FREE DONUTS - Yep, it's getting to be that time of year again. Plan for next Friday as donut shops all over the country will be celebrating National Donut Day on Friday June 5th. At Krispy Kreme no purchase is necessary, just go to a participating store to get your free donut. At Dunkin Donuts you will have to purchase a beverage in order to get your free donut. I'm sure regional and local donut shops will be getting in on the free donut bandwagon so do check with your favorite donut haunts. Alas there are no Krispy or Dunkin donuts anywhere near me or I'd plan to drive by all of them for free donuts next Friday!
MY FAVORITE ICE CREAM - I'm a vanilla kind of girl. When it comes to ice cream, for some reason it's those flavors that are based in vanilla that I seem to gravitate to: Dulce De Leche, Vanilla Cream, Caramel Cone, Butter Pecan. But my absolute favorite has always been Pralines and Cream. For most of my adult life, that's the flavor that I order if I ever find myself in a Baskin Robbins. Imagine my surprise when I found out that Haagen Dazs also makes a Praline and Cream Ice Cream. But there's a catch. It's only sold at Walgreen's Drugstores. The good news is that there is a Walgreen's on my way home from work and you know I'm going to be stopping to see if they have it. For more information go here. Though I've heard of ice cream companies only selling certain flavors regionally, this is the first I've heard of a major company only selling a specific flavor from a specific store. Anyone know differently?
COKE ZERO AND BIRDS POOPING CANDY - So Good led me to one of the commercials Coke Zero has out these days that has talking animals, a rock opera like song (why do I think Meatloaf could have done a great job with this) and a bear wearing a speedo? It's part of their new Unbelievable campaign and it's actually a pretty cool commercial. I think kids will really enjoy it and I see a whole new generation of children spouting lines like "It would be just dandy if birds pooped candy". To see the commercial go here. Oh and don't forget that Coke is suing Coke Zero for taste infringement. For the chat with the lawyers go here.
