Real Chocolate Relief Act: FREE Mars Candy Bar Coupons Today; Plus, KFC Commander-in-Chief Apologizes 4 Free Chix Fiasco
By Debbie Schlussel
Okay, so the Oprah KFC free grilled chicken meal I told you about was kind of a bust. I’m told waits in line were way too long and now many KFC outlets are giving out rainchecks because they’ve run out of chicken (see the video below from KFC’s Prez, Roger Eaton–who sounds like he’s from South Africa). I’m also told by Detroit area KFC franchise owners that the giveaway was unfair to KFC franchisees because the money for the free food came out of their pockets, and they’ve depleted their chicken supplies right before their biggest sales day of the year, Mother’s Day. (Like I said, since KFC isn’t kosher, I didn’t partake, but it sounds like that was a waste of time and not worth the wait.) Sorry.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t partake in Free Chocolate Friday–Mars’ free candy bar coupons, every Friday, beginning today. It’s part of a promotion called the Real Chocolate Relief Act, which sounds to me like the Democrat campaign, last year–Elect a Black President, and America will be saved–and the Barack stimulus plan, this year–a chocolate Prez gives you “relief” in the form of bloated spending and giving away free stuff. But in this case, the “Real Chocolate Relief” is actually Real Chocolate.
Every Friday, beginning today and going through the end of September, Mars is giving away 250,000 free candy bar coupons. Get your FREE CANDY BAR coupons here. But hurry–they are only giving away 250,000 per Friday. The promotion begins at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time (you can’t print out a coupon until then) and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern, Tonight, though I’m sure the 250K coupons will be long exhausted by then. (You can sign up to be reminded by e-mail about each Friday’s promotion.)
The coupons are good for Snickers, Peanut M&Ms, Milky Way, Twix, Dove, and 3 Musketeers bars. Out of these, I’d have to say my fave is Snickers, because it reminds me of liberals. Any way you slice it, it comes up nuts.
I know, I know–candy bars aren’t healthy, and I don’t eat them, since they’re loaded with sugar and calories. (I can’t remember how many years it’s been since I ate a candy bar, and when I eat chocolate, it’s my preferred dark chocolate in tiny square doses.) But, once in a while, a little splurge won’t kill you, especially if it’s not out of your wallet. And, hey, it’s Friday. On the weekends, everything is calorie-free and very healthy, right?
