Why did the Chick-fil-A cross the road? To get a Krispy Kreme and Slurpee, of course. And so can you

Clear your calendars for the next few days: Free and nearly free deliciousness awaits:

Today: You wouldn’t know it by looking at it, but Krispy Kreme is a whopping 78 years old today. We guess the secret is in the glaze.

Their milestone is your treasure: Buy a dozen doughnuts, get a second dozen of original glazed for 78 cents. Do it.

Fun bonus fact: We did the hard math for you. That second dozen doughnuts equates to 6.5 cents/original glazed doughnut. They are still 190 calories a pop.

Saturday: Do you know what Saturday’s date is? July 11, as in 7-11, as in 7-Eleven Day and free Slurpees for all!

Just march into any 7-Eleven and pour yourself a free small one. Warning: the good flavors go fast.

Fun bonus fact: So what is the most popular flavor? Coke is the most talked about on social media, followed closely by Wild Cherry.

Tuesday: Who doesn’t love to dress like a cow and beg for food? Plenty of you will to score a Chick-fil-A sandwich and waffle fries during the chain’s annual Dress Like a Cow Day.

Partial costumes (cow purse, cow hat) gets you an entree. The whole outfit gets you an entire meal.

Fun bonus fact: Chick-fil-A has a Tumblr FAQ just about Dress Like a Cow Day. That’s serious.
