KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A smorgasbord of free treats is available this weekend.
Hit all three and you’ll be able to get a boost of energy, have a chicken sandwich and top it off the next day with dessert.
The freebies start Friday at Starbucks and Chick-fil-A.
Starbucks is offering free 12-ounce servings of their new energy drink ‘Refreshers’ from noon to 3 p.m.
An advertisement on the coffee giant’s website ( www.starbucks.com ) says the new drinks are made with real fruit and calls them “a breakthrough in natural energy.”
Once you’re energized, you can head over to Chick-Fil-A for a free entrée, side item and beverage. There’s a catch though. You’ll have to dress like a cow from head to foot. Yup, seriously.
If all you’ve got is a cow accessory, the restaurant will still give you a free entrée, minus the side and drink.
You can even download a “Cow Starter Kit” at chick-fil-a.com .
And what’s a good meal without a dessert? Well, you’ll have to pay for your dessert Friday, but on Saturday, you can head to Dippin’ Dots for a free sample of their new Clusterz, described on their website as ice cream dots clustered with rich crunchy chocolate.
You’ll have to head to www.dippindots.com to download a coupon for the free treat, which is only redeemable from 7 to 9 p.m. on Saturday.
As is the case with any free treat giveaway, we suggest checking with the location you plan on heading to to make sure they are participating.
