Celebrate the First Day of Summer With FREEBIES and Deals on June 21st!

News Parenting Just For Fun

While summer festivities have already begun, the official start to summer is on Friday, June 21st. Scientifically speaking, this day marks the Summer Solstice, when the Sun reaches its highest point in the sky and we enjoy the longest stretch of daylight we'll see all year. June 21st also marks National Smoothie Day, a day devoted to the blended concoction of sweet juices, mouthwatering fruits and other delightful surprises that has made getting the required fruits and veggies into our kids' tummies a lot easier.

What better way to celebrate summer (and smoothies) than soak up all of those extra daylight hours with these sweet and refreshing offers from your favorite restaurants and smoothie joints, like Dairy Queen, Jamba, Planet Smoothie and more!

So, slather on the sunscreen, bask in the sunshine and treat the whole family to the frozen freebies and delicious deals below. 

Jamba (formerly Jamba Juice)
Celebrate National Smoothie Day with a visit to any participating Jamba location on Friday, June 21st between 2 p.m. - 5 p.m. local time to receive a FREE small Watermelon Breeze, Vanilla Blue Sky or White Gummi Smoothie. A smoothie is the perfect treat to cool off during a hot summer's day!

Wayback Burgers 
Kick off summer the Wayback Burgers way with their annual Free Shake Day! On June 21st, order a FREE 12-ounce Black & White Milkshake, hand-dipped and crafted to order with Blue Bunny® ice cream and milk, from 10:30 a.m. until supplies run out at participating locations. One per customer.

Enjoy a 32-ounce cup of Bojangles’ Legendary Iced Tea for $1 all summer long at participating locations. What makes Bojangles' iced tea legendary? They steep their Southern tea the old-fashioned way, in small batches, and you can taste the difference. Grab your refreshing drink, then sit back, relax, and enjoy! (Preferably on a porch swing with a good book and a gentle breeze blowing in the background.)
