Brand Eating Giveaway Drawing: McDonald's Holiday Drinks

McDonald's sent me some coupons for free small Peppermint Mochas (or Hot Chocolates) and free French Vanilla Lattes and I'd thought I'd share with two lucky readers.

Here's what's up for grabs:

  • Two sets of 3 coupons for a free small Peppermint Mocha and 3 coupons for a free new small French Vanilla Latte (a total of 6 coupons per set, or basically enough to get your morning coffee for a week). The coupons expire on February 1, 2013,  because the Peppermint Mocha will be probably be off menu by then.

To enter: Let me know what you'd like to see more of on Brand Eating in the upcoming year or you can say you're just here for the prize (that's okay too!). Only one comment per person please and the contest is only open to residents of the U.S. ages 18 and older. Please be sure to include your email address in the "email" field (and not in the comment section... you don't want spam!) as I will be contacting the winners via email.

The giveaway drawing will close this Thursday, December 20, 2012 at 11:00pm Pacific Standard Time. Shortly after, I'll compile the entries and use a random number generator to choose two winners, who will each receive a total of 6 coupons (provided by McDonald's) for the aforementioned drinks via mail (I might be a little late in sending since it's the holidays and all). The winners will have 3 days to respond to my email. Should that time lapse, I will go ahead and use the random number generator to choose a new winner.

I'll post the winner here on Friday, so be sure to check back then. Good luck everyone!

Winners:

Congrats to Sherry and rachel! I'll be in touch shortly to arrange delivery.

Thank you everyone for the kind comments and suggestions.

  2. I'd like to see some sort of review scale (stars, thumbs-ups, etc), and also a hall of fame for the best items you've reviewed. Love the site, though! Keep up the good work!

  6. I'd like to see more reviews of frozen foods.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'd also like to see a rating scale, possibly a 1-5 ranking.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Maybe a few reviews that compare similar menu items from different fast food places to find out which is best? You know, McDonald's smoothie vs BK smoothie, a comparison of fries or shakes from the different chains, Big Mac vs Bonus Jack, Pizza Hut vs Papa John's, etc.

    I'd like to see slightly more detailed reviews! Maybe rate restaurants over their overall menu selections.

  10. I'd like to see more cereal reviews!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Id like to see more restaurant plate reviews...like new plates at certain chain restaurants! But over all I love this website and you do a great job running it!

    ReplyDelete
  12. i would like to read reviews from Fazoli's. Are they not in your area?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Great fun reading about what I usually end up eating!

    How about more side by side comparisons for the copycat sandwiches :
    Big Carl vs Big Mac etc?

    ReplyDelete
  14. If it is possible I would like to see reviews of local/regional chains. For instance, Penguin Point is a favorite of mine. They have about 13 locations, but all in a relatively small geographical area in Northern Indiana. www.penguinpoint.com
    There must be a lot of smaller chains like this across America and it would be interesting to know about them while travelling.

  15. I enjoy the site the way it is - especially the "Around the World" features!

  16. I just had a trader joes open near by so I would love to see some more trader joes reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yippee. I'd like more Trader Joes reviews. Unfortunately, TJs is not in my area, but I always try to find one on the road.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'd be down with some Whole Foods reviews!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I really enjoy the reviews! I've tried a lot of new restaurants and foods because I saw them here! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'd definitely like to see some in-depth breakdowns comparing similar items in the same category from different restaurants.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Keep doing what you're doing, I think you're doing a great job! I would like to see some tropical smoothie reviews and maybe some Jason's Deli (if you have any out on the Pacific Coast), and maybe more freebies

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'd love to see more free stuff given away. Word up!

    ReplyDelete
  23. sites great, more give aways would also be great tho ;) !!

    ReplyDelete
  24. While I like all elements of the website, I definitely prefer the fast food reviews the most. I would definitely like to see more of those, especially of newly released or harder to find items.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sorry, I've never seen a Fazoli's before. I've only heard of it through writing this blog.

    ReplyDelete
  26. There's only one Jason's Deli in California, but it's like 50 minutes away =(

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thursday, Dec. 20. Sorry, I corrected the date.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great site as is. Keep up the great work.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love the way the site is already. More fast casual like Panera bread would be cool, though.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'd like to see more reviews from sit-down or fast-casual type of restaurants. I do like the frozen foods and fast food reviews too!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'd like to see more comparisons between products, within the same brand (like all McD's hamburgers) and across brands ( like McD's sundaes versus BK's). In addition to taste, one component of the review could be value. Which item offers the best combo of taste, size, and price.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'd like to see more restaurant reviews!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm new to the site, so I can't offer many suggestions, but I like what I've seen so far.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I like the idea of a face off against other grocery store foods and fast food. More deals featuring sit down restaurants. I would like to see healthy food featured more often other than microwave meals and sub places. I think it would be cool to see contests where Brand Eating fans have to make and do stuff at the restaurants you feature.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love giveaways, but you can only have those when you can have em :) I wouldn't mind seeing more grocery store finds or food comparisons/battles.

    i think there should be requests reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm all about the free coffee!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm such a coffee fanatic, thanks for having this giveaway! =]

    ReplyDelete
  40. I enjoy the news and varied reviews. Please keep informing us of the new seasonal/promotional items at various national chains.

    ReplyDelete
  41. More fast food reviews please! I realize I might be endangering your health a bit with that request but I found you because of them and I keep coming back for it as well. I like the junk/frozen food stuff but most of the time, I don't eat that sort of stuff so it's hard for me to relate and even though I'm not the biggest fast food eater, I do get it occasionally... And the rest of the time, I live vicariously through you.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I checked, and there is only 1 Fazoli's in California (in Chino Hills). They should expand :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I actually enjoy the site the way it is :D maybe have more than 1 review per day (eg review of a burger and a coffee drink the same day)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Maybe more reviews and news from casual dining chains?

    ReplyDelete
  45. More around the world items! Very interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I happened on this site about a month ago, and added it to my Twitter feed. I look forward to seeing that BE logo more than just about any of the other feeds I'm subscribed to. Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would be really interested in reading more about test market items or concepts from the major restaurants.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I like to see more giveaways!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would love to read more about in store items!

    ReplyDelete
