Did you get a chance to join the Walmart Ice Cream Social last Saturday? Well, I did. We needed to shop for our Memorial Day BBQ party at Walmart anyway. It would be really nice to grab some free ice cream during our shopping trip. The ice cream social was scheduled between 5pm-9pm at our local Walmart Supercenter, so we arrived around 7pm.
Each of us received a free scoop of Dreyers ice cream topped with Reddi-wip and Nesquik syrup. I was a bit surprised by the generous sample size. My son was the most excited of all. He was eagerly reaching for the cup while I was taking the picture.
While we were savoring our free ice cream on our way to checkout, we were stopped and asked a couple times where we got those samples. I think it would be helpful for Walmart to put up some kind of notice or signage at the store entrance letting more people know about the demo event. I have to say that the Bright Ideas Station wasn't particularly eye-catching and many people might have passed by without knowing what it was intended for.
If you missed the Walamrt Ice Cream Social last Saturday, no worries. There will be another one nationwide on July 2nd. Mark your calendar and locate a participating store near you here.
