Free Food

A week after Papa John's infamous 23 cent pizza day, McDonald's and Dunkin' Donuts are jumping on this idea of giving out free food. (I know, I know, Papa John's charged 23 cents, but it was basically free.) The restaurants are claiming rising food costs prevent the average consumer from trying new food and this is a way for them to try the new items without actually purchasing them.

Today from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm, McDonald's is offering a free Southern Style biscuit (breakfast hours) or new Southern Style chicken sandwich (lunch and dinner hours) free to those consumers who buy a medium (or larger size) beverage. Also, Dunkin' Donuts is giving away their 16 oz. iced coffees from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm. This is an attempt to showcase their new Berry Berry flavor.

Maybe this will encourage more restaurants to give away free food... or more!
