After you cast your vote, eat, drink and be merry–on the house!–with the help of a few familiar faces:
Who knew doughnuts could be stinkin’ adorable AND patriotic? Red, white and blue, star-shaped…and FREE? Krispy Kreme turns "hot and now" into something magically delicious.
Not to be outdone, Starbucks is offering 12-ounce cups of their brewed coffee to customers.
After your morning sugar high, I’m sure you’ll need an afternoon pick up; Ben & Jerry’s will take care of that with a free scoop of ice cream. I agree with their tagline, "Democracy never tasted so sweet!". My favorite is Chocolate Fudge Brownie, though "Chunky Monkey" and "Cherry Garcia" make me smile. I think after my stint as an OPI Color Namer, I’ll be qualified to be a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream namer (hope "tasting" is a requirement of that job). What’s you’re favorite flavor?
McAlister’s Deli is offering a free cookie with your "I voted" sticker. Have you seen their cookies? They’re gargantuan! They’re almost the size of my head!
Chick-Fil-A is offering free sandwiches to voters. Maybe you should stop there before Ben & Jerry’s. Nah, go crazy, it IS election day, after all–life is short! Eat dessert first, right?
Disclaimer: In compliance with election law, all customers may request these freebies (where offered), regardless of whether or note they voted. Some of these offerings may be franchise-specific, check your area to be sure. Also, if you know of any other national chains with similar offerings, please let me know and I’ll add it as I’m able.
God bless America :)!
