Sometimes, cheap ice cream is better than none…

Sometimes, cheap ice cream is better than none…

There’s nothing I love more than fresh, creamy, frozen Wisconsin custard from Oscar’s or Culver’s. But for a broke college student paying for their undergraduate degree entirely out of pocket, I can’t always afford that luxury. In all honesty, it’s also SUPER nice to have […]

Culver’s Scoopie tokens – the best kind of currency

Culver’s Scoopie tokens – the best kind of currency

(This picture was taken AFTER I cashed in 10 of my Culver’s Scoopie tokens this past weekend.)

Can we talk about how awesome the freebies you get with a Kids’ meal at Culver’s are?! First and foremost, you get a FREE scoop of ice cream. That already is the main reason as to why I only have ever bought Kids’ meals at Culver’s (what are Value Baskets?). The kid’s meal really is the best bang for your buck – for just five bucks you get an entree, a side, and you free ice cream, and the portions are still enough to fill up an adult (even my parents get them).

Of course, I can’t leave out the second best part of the Kids’ meals; the Scoopie tokens. These are the gift that keeps on giving. You get the Scoopie token to save up for prizes or a free kids meal (which add up pretty quick for me), and you get the coupon for the free dish of ice cream, which I’d also recommend saving up rather than using it during that same visit.

I keep quite a collection with me at all times in my wallet (in a special compartment where no one can find/steal them, keep in mind) and I love saving them up. Also is there anything better than ordering a Kids’ meal to-go, with your ice cream dish choice, and they FORGET to rip your tokens off?! I don’t think so!
