Yesterday it was "Gingerbread"
I never knew there was a reason to "become a fan" of anything on facebook, but now I know. If you become a fan of Sprinkles they give you a new word every day. If you whisper that word to the workers in the store, they will give you a FREE cupcake. It is a limited edition flavor for that day only, and they make a limited amount- so if you get there too late they may not have any more to give.
The yoga girls and I got there at around 1:00pm (after a DELICIOUS lunch at the Nordstrom cafe, btw. Hail to the tomato basil soup and the bleu cheese & pear salad!) and there were still plenty of free cupcakes for all of us. I would never have known the trick if it wasn't for them. Then again, I usually get things for free when I'm with Amy, but I'll save that for another post. Maybe when we use our free tickets to Mary Poppins at the Gammage...
Anyway, Dan ate half of the cupcake and he swears it gave him diabetes. I ate a smidgen at a time, and I got a toothache with every tiny bite. Those things are good, but sweet.
It is a good thing we don't live very close to a Sprinkles.
