McDonald'sI don’t know about you, but sometimes I just crave a fountain Diet Coke. There’s something about the extra bubbles and the crisp flavor of a fountain soda when compared to what comes from a bottle or a can… However, it feels like highway robbery when stores try to charge a couple of bucks or more for a little soda!

This summer, enjoy any size fountain drink at McDonald’s for just $1! Just one buckaroo (plus tax) gets me the sweet, bubbly treat I “need” now and then. Ahhh… I think I might take a McDonald’s break this afternoon.

TODAY: FREE Frappe at McDonald’s July 9, 2010

To quote Robin Williams’ character in Good Morning, Vietnam, here’s today’s weather forecast: “It’s hot! Damn hot! Real hot!” Yep, that seems to hit the nail on the head right about now…

TODAY ONLY, cool off with a FREE frappe at McDonald’s — in mocha or caramel!

Now, I have to tell you I haven’t personally tried these yet, but just take a look at that mocha frappe in this post. McDonald’s site describes it as “one frosty cup of love: the coffee-chocolate goodness of mocha blended with ice, topped with whipped cream.” To me that sounds pretty darn close to a Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino, which I know I love!

My sources say this deal is good at “most” McDonald’s around the country, so it might be a good idea to give your local McDonald’s a holler before stopping by if the FREE frappe is your only reason for the visit.

Thanks, Cha-Ching on a Shoestring!

Note: So, what made me think of the Good Morning, Vietnam reference? Memories of my dad and a movie we both loved. He served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. He wasn’t drafted — he enlisted to serve our country. That’s just one of his amazing accomplishments. I write this blog in his memory, in hopes of getting more people to register to be organ/tissue donors or at least start the conversation with their families.
