Ice cream is good. Free ice cream is better.
The problem with growing up as a fan of Roald Dahl books is that it’s very rare to win a literal golden ticket to earn a lifetime supply of tasty treats. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has been giving children unrealistic expectations for generations, as we find ourselves severely lacking in free food.
Along comes McDonald’s to light the fire of possibilities within us again – the restaurant chain has placed one golden soft serve ice cream cone into circulation. This coming Sunday July 16th, one lucky patron somewhere in the country will walk into a McDonald’s restaurant in search of ice cream, and will be gifted the werewithall to have free frozen treats forever.

Only one person will get the chance to win this prize, but that doesn’t mean that the rest of us can’t enjoy some free ice cream as well. As part of this contest, McDonald’s is giving away a free soft serve ice cream to any customer that uses their app. Simply display your phone at any participating restaurant, you’ll be presented with your own free ice cream.
Sure, it’s not a lifetime supply, but a free ice cream is not to be sniffed at.
Besides, who knows? If you get really, really lucky, you might just walk away with the golden cone, granting you free ice cream for life.
Now that’s worth getting out of bed for!
