I love programs that are a win/win.  When I can do something that I enjoy that also benefits someone else, I’m all over it.  This weekend – June 15 and 16 – is the annual Father’s Day Frosty Weekend at Wendy’s.  What’s so special about it?  $0.50 from each Frosty purchased this weekend will go to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption to be used to benefit the cause of Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, which is a program that helps foster children in need find great homes.

So I can take my family out for a special treat on Father’s Day weekend, make everyone happy, and help support a worthy cause at the same time?  I love it!  And I love the excuse to go get a creamy chocolatey Frosty, too.  Yes, I know Wendy’s now has other flavors, but the chocolate is still my favorite.

That said, I haven’t tried the Frosty Cone yet – which of course counts for the $0.50 donation – but you can bet I will this weekend!  It’s a waffle cone with either the chocolate or vanilla Frosty inside.  It may not be the traditional Frosty I used to share with my Gram, but I can be flexible.

Even better, you can support the DTFA via Facebook and Twitter.  For each story, image, or video shared on either site using the hashtag #FirstFrosty and sharing your first Frosty memories, Wendy’s will donate $1 up to a maximum of $50,000.  That’s the easiest money I’ve ever donated to charity, how about you?

And yes, my first Frosty memories all involve my Gram.  She absolutely adored them, and Wendy’s was her favorite stop whenever we were on a road trip.  Fortunately, she usually came along on our road trips from Connecticut to Illinois or down to Florida, so we had plenty of opportunities.  When I was little, my mom wouldn’t allow me to order my own Frosty, but my Gram was always happy to share hers.

As I got older, I had my own Frosty, and we would compare Frosty eating techniques.  My Gram was the one to teach me to swirl the spoon around the outside of the cup to catch the just about to melt Frosty and eat it before it became fully melted.  She would always clean her spoon all the way off after every bite, as though she didn’t want to miss any part of her yummy goodness.

And yes, she was the one who got me in trouble by showing me how I could stick my spoon into my very frozen Frosty and turn it upsidedown.  I got in trouble for that one, but my Gram talked me out of it.  I have so many wonderful memories of her, and I’m sad that the wee ones will never have a chance to meet her.
