Book News & Pizza Chews

Hey there, everybody! Here are a couple news tid-bits I'd thought I'd share with you today:

  • Today, May 6th, is Free Boneless Chicken Day at KFC! To nab a piece of KFC's New Original Recipe Boneless Chicken, all you have to do is be one of the first 100 customers to visit your local Kentucky Fried Chicken from 2 PM to 4 PM and say the words, "I ate the bones." Yeah, free lunch!

  • For a limited time only, starting today, participating McDonald's locations are having a new deal on their McWraps: Buy One McWrap, Get One for 99 Cents. I've already reviewed the Sweet Chili Chicken McWrap here, and thought it was delicious. Perhaps it's time you tried one for yourself!

  • Hungry Girl, aka Lisa Lillien's, new cookbook Hungry Girl 200 Under 200 Just Desserts: 200 Recipes Under 200 Calories will be hitting shelves nationwide tomorrow. It's a recipe book chock-full of delicious desserts- all under, you guessed it, 200 calories! You can find the official recipe and picture list here. I would love to try making the Red Velvet and Carrot Cakes sometime... Yum! There's still time to pre-order Hg's book online, and if you do, you can save up to 40%. That way, you'll have plenty money for ingredients! And if that's not enough, Hungry Girl is also having a great promotional deal if you buy two copies of her book as well: Just upload your proof of purchase along with some other information here, and you'll get two Vitalicious coupons, each valid for purchase of one free Vitalicious product, along with four free Hungry Girl recipe cards. Nice! Don't miss out!

  • In the Kenosha Area and craving some pizza? FOR FREE?! You can win a large, 3-topping, NY-Style pizza plus one dozen buffalo wings from Slice of NY Pizzeria in downtown Kenosha. All you have to do is answer the WLIP Wake Up Call's trivia question and you will be entered to win! You can find this week's trivia question over on WLIP's or Bill Lawrence's Facebook page. If you think you know the answer, send it to pizza@wlip.com, or Facebook message Bill Lawrence here. The winner will be announced next week Monday on the Wake Up Call (AM 1050) at 7:30 AM. Don't delay! This is a weekly raffle, so don't be disappointed if you don't win the first time.

  •  It's Free Cone Day at Haagen Daaz on May 14th! If you stop by one of Haagen Daaz' shops from 4 PM-8 PM, on Tuesday, May 14th, you'll get a free scoop of ice cream. Woohoo! I wish we had a Haagen Daaz here in Keno-where...

  • Dairy Queen's 2013 May Blizzard of the Month is Choco Peanut Butter Brownie. This flavor features peanut butter, chocolate chunks, and brownie pieces, all swirled together with DQ's signature vanilla soft serve. Sounds good, but watch out: even Mini Blizzards can add 370 calories to your day. Yikes! 

  •  Subway's Featured Five Dollar Footlong for May is the ever-popular Meatball Marinara. Tasty, to be sure. But if you'd rather eat light and spend light, the $3 Six-Inch Select for this month is the Oven Roasted Chicken. One sub is only 320 calories. Eat on!

And that's about all the news I got for today. Till' next time, this has been RiRi Ri-porting!
