Dessert Is Good For Your Taste Buds, Bad For Restaurants’ Profit Margins

Most restaurants offer dessert, but depending on what time of day it is, they might not want you to actually order it.

Donate To Diabetes Research, Get Four Frostys From Wendy’s

Donate To Diabetes Research, Get Four Frostys From Wendy’s

It could always be worse. Almost exactly a year ago, we shared a KFC promotion that donated part of the purchase price of a ginormous soft drink to type 2 diabetes research.

This year’s Wendy’s promo raises money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, or type 1 diabetes–the one not correlated to poor dietary habits. Donate $1, and you get four small Frostys, cups of a sugar-laden dairy-like substance. One small Frosty contains 42 grams of sugar, if you’re wondering. That’s 10.5 teaspoons of sweetness, and kind of a weird item to be selling as a fundraiser for a disease that prevents patients from processing sugar correctly.
