everyone in my office picked up one today outside of the burbs of chicago.

for those who didn't notice the tiny mention, the free frosty is of the Jr. variety - meaning it is the cutest, smallest frosty ever. a great extra snack, but nothing like the frosty's you would generally order. still delicious, however :)

@nafsllib: I don't see a list on the first link and the second link is broken? It says there is a server error....

I wonder is it available in Eatonton, Dublin, or Milledgeville??

@jandk113: under the first link click on the drop down list under Search by Class or Event and choose Wendy's Frosty Fundraiser.

@katanaryda: I'm with you. Why oh why does every dessert have milk?!?

@emerson42: i was told today by a lactose intolerant friend that frosty's aren't really dairy. now i'mma have to research...

EDIT: apparently my friend is crazy. milk is the first ingredient listed.

I cannot for the life of me find the link to locations (I am hoping they are in Ohio)

I had this last year. They were definitely a nice treat. Heck, it was worth it for the cool little keychain alone.

Anyone know of any in the austin area?

@emerson42: sux, i just ate a dq french silk pie and popped 2 lactaids, i'll be good. Also, it's weird that a glass of milk will fuq me up worse than a 6 pack of beer, if u know what i mean lol

Don't look for too much of a deal, it benefits children's hospitals!

welp, there goes this year's resolution

vote-for6vote-against

We bought the key tag last year right at the drive up window. they actually gave a our first free frosty jr. right then. We didn't buy it until October or November but it was a nice addition. Every time we picked up some food we asked for our free key tag frosty. sometimes it was the small version instead of jr. it was a great deal!

I guess I will have to call our local restaurant to see if they participate. Most of the sites I found were referencing the 2011 tag. And the "limited market" references. Probably not in Detroit.

@katanaryda: Oh come on. What's a little vomiting for a good cause?

vote-for2vote-against

Am I missing something? I'm trying to find out if my local Wendy's is in on this deal but cannot find anything on the first link to direct me to a list of participating locations.

Maybe I'll just ask the next time I roll through for lunch.

@smtatertot13:

Let your friend test that theory and tell you how it goes.

vote-for2vote-against

@mphdavid: I also bought one last year and only got to use it once (they didn't let me use it when I bought it, but maybe I didn't try hard enough). It said it expired Oct 31, 2011 so you couldn't have bought it in november.

It says the minimum donation amount is $5. Am I looking in the wrong area?

OK People...
I stripped back the Salvation Army website & searched for "Wendy's" in the eastern PA area and found my stores.

I suggest you all do the same.

Select your region... Goto their website.. Search "Wendy's"
Hopefully you get a hit.

Good Luck.

It's a good cause for the donation.
The cups are teenie-tiny, smaller than you're expecting.

vote-for2vote-against

I can't figure this out for the life of me. I yield no results when searching salvation army for, "Wendy's," "Wendys," Wendy," or "Frosty." Therefore, Tampa Bay must be excluded.

@wuz314159:
Did you also notice the date on that news release? it was from 2008.

vote-for4vote-against

I believe last year, the keytags were sold in different months in different states. The donation might be for different organizations in different states. I recall getting a keytag in Michigan in about April. The Michigan keytag was good until Dec 31.

Let's try to clarify some confusion on this deal.

First of all you are best off checking your local Wendy's location. maybe even checking a few different locations in your area.

Secondly, it appears that different locations or markets across the country use this promotion to benefit different organizations.

I was trying to find some reference on the web that lists locations honoring this promotion with no luck. I was able to locate various references to specific regions or locations where people were able to obtain a key tag.

The first link in my reply post, does list some locations in GA, but you will have to select the drop down box and click on Wendy's Frosty promotion to see the list of locations. I believe this is just for one area of GA around Augusta.

@earlyre: I did, but I'm assuming it has remained unchanged.
Worst case is they say no.

vote-for3vote-against

Did this last year. I used to go to Wendy's all the time because it was right down the street from my last job. Where I live the charity was the SPCA. (With sad puppies and kittens on the advertising that I could not have resisted.)

Like people said above, this is basically a shot of Frosty. But that's probably for the best for all of our waistlines. If you use it twice, you're getting your money's worth.

If I get one in Virginia can I use it in NY?

this is AWESOME!!! i just bought 5! for a buck a piece, i will be giving these away to friends! WHO DOESN'T LOVE A FROSTIE??? (i bought my keychain at the location in Lincolnwood, IL, on Touhy Avenue.

I just followed the link, donated $5 to the dave smith foundation- now how doo I get my free frosty key chain???

vote-for2vote-against

Got it in NW Indiana! Free jr frosty with any purchase. The jr frosty is $1 so you essentially pay for the first one and get the rest free!

anyone tried it in Socal?

i know they had this about a year ago but I went to ask some Wendys at that time, and they never heard of it??

vote-for14vote-against

Just got back from my local Wendy's where I had an interesting coversation with the store manager. She told me that they were a franchise, and the franchise owner was not offering the key tags for sale at his restaurants, but if I had a key tag she would honor it because it is considered a NATIONAL COUPON and ALL stores HAVE TO honor it - even franchises.

She then proceeded to tell me where the nearest corporate restaurant was so that I could get my key tags.

@dleffert: Thanks that answered a lot of questions.

i STILL am not seeing how I get my frosty key chain once I donated on the website??????

vote-for2vote-against

@texasoil: check your local brick and mortar store.

vote-for1vote-against

The local store had this deal on last year, but it was only for 5 Frosties and had an expiration date, soon enough that I kept forgetting about it and let several of them lapse. Oh well, for a good cause, right? ;^)

Anyway, if all Wendys offer the same Frosty, I didn't lose much by not getting the rest.

vote-for1vote-against

Dang... I just had a Frosty at a nearby Wendy's this morning... no mention of the deal :(

vote-for2vote-against

I thought this was some super secret deal..... Then I get to my store & there is a large sticker on the front door & a sign dangling over the register.
In for 3... Wendy's will be so broke. ;)
