The Big Names In Food Are Giving Away Stuff For Free - Did You Want Some?

People often say "there's no such thing as a free lunch" but that's simply not true. In fact there's a lot more that's free out there than just a lunch, and we're going to show you how to get it.

We've already told you about the day that Dairy Queen made everyone in the country happy by giving away free ice cream, but they aren't the only big name giving away free food. This year you'll be able to get more free ice cream, free donuts and free slurpees too. You just have to know when to hit up your favorite stores.


TCBY traditionally gives away free yogurt on Mother's Day, which is coming up May 14th, and the next month you can go back for more on Father's Day (June 18).

National Donut Day is June 2 - and I bet you can guess what that means. Free donuts for everyone! Krispy Kreme is a big lover of National Donut Day, but you should also see deals from Baskin Robbins, Dunkin' Donuts and others.


July is the month that bakes us all, but don't worry, there's a great way to cool off. Traditionally 7-Eleven gives out free slurpees on July 11th, (because the date is 7/11 get it?) and this year should be no different. Also in July is National Cow Appreciation Day, which is good news for cows and bad news for chickens. Chick-fil-A will be celebrating with free meals.

There's a lot more deals to be had in the later months, turn the page to find out what they are.

It'll be sad to say goodbye to summer, but there are a few deals in store that will make the passing a little easier. For instance as August winds down Ben & Jerry's will be giving away free ice cream to those who find their special trucks.

September brings another day of free donuts, if yarrrrr up for it. Talk Like A Pirate Day has turned into a national craze for Krispy Kreme fans and this year will be no different.

November 11 will see free meals to former and current veterans at many restaurants like T.G.I.Friday's Applebee's, Golden Corral, Denny's and many more.

Can we fast-forward to December? Dec 4th is National Cookie Day and I don't have to tell you what that means.

There you have it, your list of free eats for 2017!
