Put your fingers around a free Wendy’s Frosty

Finger-free Frostys all ‘round! Wendy’s restaurants nationwide will extend a—hand—to consumers this weekend with a special Junior Frosty giveaway, Friday through Sunday. The giveaway of 14 million of the slushy ice-cream drinks is a move to draw customers back to the embattled burger chain, which saw its reputation dragged through the mud after a Las Vegas woman went to a San Jose, Calif, restaurant and said she was served a bowl of chili with part of a finger in it—and now has been charged in connection with planting the finger. The free Frosty weekend was already a big hit in the San Francisco Bay Area a few weeks ago—the chain gave out 100,000 Frostys.
