McDonald's Treat Books - Healthier This Year, and a Giveaway

I just stopped into a McDonalds and got one of this year's Tricks & Treats Packs -- 12 coupons for small items for just $1. Last year, the booklet included coupons for small sodas and fries. This year, there are three each of:

apple dippers
small juice or milk jug
small cone

Now, I'm delighted to see I can get the kids milk instead of soda this year. That's great! And a hamburger is a nice addition. However, I was sorely disappointd to see that there are no more fries coupons. That was Mommy's treat!

Anyway, at less than 10 cents a treat, these coupon books are nice to keep in the car. They're good from 11/1 through 12/31.

Oh, and one more thing: I accidentally got two books, but I only need one. So I'm giving away the other treat book to you, dear readers. If you want to win it, leave a comment with the best excuse you've ever come up with when you were caught by another mom feeding your kids McDonalds.

For instance, my feeble excuse usually goes, "Heh. We were running late..." So if I hear a better one from one of you, I'll totally steal it for next time I get caught.

I only got her a happy meal so she could complete her collection of Wizard of Oz dolls.

We were totally on our way home and just ran out of gas right in front of McDonald's at dinner time.

"I promised they could play on the toys if they (insert something here like cleaned their rooms)." Lame, I know, but we usually go through the drive through so that a)the toys are a non-issue and b) I usually am running late when we grab McDonald's.

I'm glad to hear the coupons are better this year! I don't think I've ever been "caught" at McDonald's but I think we've only taken the kids like 2x in the last 3 years. The boys have allergies and there's like two things they can have there. One is the apple slices. :P It might be cool to have some in the car though to bribe the kids with - "we'll just go to one more CVS and then we'll drive through and get some apples!!" My kids would totally dig that - probably just because I'd be letting them eat in the car. LOL

Um, we came to play with the toys. I guess we had to buy something for the pleasure of playing. (usually it is coffee for me).

the lines at the other restaurants in the food court were too long, so we had to go to McDonald's! :-p
or... my kid's have allergies and we know that they can eat the nuggets but not sure about the other stuff offered in the food court!
