Wal-Mart Scores Cool Points With Summer Freebie

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Wal-Mart is about to score major points with their cool summer giveaway.

This Saturday (May 30), 2,000 participating Wal-Mart Supercenters nationwide will be holding “Ice Cream Socials,” where patrons can get free ice cream to celebrate the start of summer.

Here’s the scoop: Those looking for sweet relief from the heat will be treated by Wal-Mart to pre-packaged goodies like Ben and Jerry’s “Flipped Out Cup” ice cream, Blue Bunny Aspen Frozen Yogurt Granola Bars, and Dibs snack bags.

They plan on dishing out about 1 million ice cream treats, from 11 AM to 4 PM.

To prep for the social, the popular chain has scooped out info on Americans’ frozen treat tendencies.

For instance, Americans’ top five favorite ice cream flavors are vanilla, chocolate, butter pecan, mint chip, and neapolitan.

Three Americans to every one American prefer vanilla over chocolate, and in the Southwest, butter pecan flavor is more popular than chocolate.
