The Wendy’s Frosty Coupon Books are back and this Halloween, you can help children waiting in foster care while delighting trick-or-treaters with a sweet treat.
From September 19 through October 31, Wendy’s will be selling, which include five free Jr. Frosty® coupons, for $1. The coupons would make for a creative handout to Halloween trick-or-treaters in place of, or in addition to, candy. Proceeds from these sales will go to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption to help find families for children waiting in foster care. For each Halloween Coupon Book sold, $0.85 cents will be donated to the foundation.
As an adopted child himself, Wendy’s Founder Dave Thomas knew first-hand the importance of family. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption was born from Dave’s firmly held belief that children in foster care “aren’t someone else’s responsibility, they are our responsibility.” Today, Wendy’s remains committed to that belief and mission, and supports the organization through in-restaurant activations, partnerships and donations.
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a national nonprofit public charity dedicated exclusively to finding permanent homes for the more than 130,000 children waiting in North America’s foster care systems. Created by Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas who was adopted, the Foundation implements evidence-based, results-driven national signature programs, foster care adoption awareness campaigns and innovative grant making.

Denny’s pancakes are better than ever! Their new pancakes are hand-mixed to order in-restaurant and fluffier and full of more flavor than ever before. They beat the pants off of any other pancake I’ve had, and I’ve had a lot!
In August, Denny’s introduced its “Love ‘Em or They’re Free Guarantee” for its new pancakes—made with fresh buttermilk, real eggs and a hint of vanilla. The satisfaction guarantee applies to any Denny’s dish featuring pancakes; from the iconic Denny’s Grand Slam to the all-new Signature Builds, even the famous $4 All You Can Eat Pancake dish. Through September, families can visit any Denny’s nationwide from 4PM to 10PM to sample the great new Denny’s pancakes, and kids 10 and under can enjoy them for free! It’s all thanks to their “Free Pancakes for Kids” offer.
Denny’s Pancakes are Better Than Ever
Loved the pancakes at Denny’s for as long as I can remember, but their signature food is even better than ever. They’ve completely transformed their traditional pancakes with pure ingredients and classic flavors like fresh buttermilk, real eggs, and a hint of vanilla. Yum! These hand-mixed pancakes are available four limited time flavors, as well – Sticky Bun, Strawberries & Cream, Double Berry Banana, and Peanut Butter Cup.
Last week we visited New York to drop my daughter off at college for the semester, and had the opportunity to visit the Denny’s location in the Big Apple near the Freedom Tower, and I had breakfast for dinner! YUMMMMMMM! It also was my birthday! Their pancakes are even fluffier than before, and the all-natural ingredients left me wondering how any other restaurant could hope to compete with their delicious breakfasts.
Denny’s Pancakes Aren’t the Only Great Thing About Them
In addition to “Free Pancakes for Kids” offer, Denny’s is giving 10 healthy meals to hungry kids for every $1 donation to “No Kid Hungry”. 10 meals for $1 is a HUGE impact on childhood hunger. So head out and enjoy some delicious Denny’s pancakes from 4PM to 10PM so the kiddos can get them for free and donate a dollar to “No Kid Hungry”. Everybody wins!

Recently, my husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary, so we all headed out to Applebee’s to give their new salads a try. Of course, being Applebee’s, the atmosphere was wonderful – not too fancy and not too next door. It was the perfect combination of class and laid back, as always. And the food!
My husband and I each had a delicious filling salad, and our daughter had a steak (not much into salads) and they were AH-mazing! I had the Southwestern Steak Salad and he had the Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad. They have 4 delicious new varieties to choose from, and they all sound yummy. And with prices starting at $8.99, they as affordable as they are delicious.
