Free Italian ice, Free Cone Day, Free Pastry Day -- it's a week to celebrate dessert.

It’s the last Friday of winter, and time again for Friday food deals and freebies.


Start working out now, because this week’s top freebies are all sweets.


Some March Madness bar deals are in effect during the NCAA basketball tournament, and some of last week’s deals are still good.


We hear that McDonald’s is going to offer $1 drinks in some of its stores this summer, but that deal isn’t in effect yet.

With thanks to our friends at Cities on the Cheap, here are this week’s deals:

  • To celebrate the first day of spring, Rita’s is offering customers a free 10-ounce Italian ice from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, March 20.
  • Ben & Jerry’s is celebrating Free Cone Day from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 23.
  • Starbucks is celebrating Free Pastry Day from opening to 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 23. For this deal, you need to print out the coupon or show it on your handheld device.
  • Buy one White Castle A1 Specialty Slider and get one free with this coupon through April 24. One coupon per customer per visit.
  • Get a free beverage with these coupons at Kum & Go. The coupons are good for a free 14-ounce Welch's Juice, a free Diet Dr. Pepper fountain drink and a free 12-ounce Celsius beverage. One coupon per visit, and the coupons expire March 21.
  • Save $2 off a purchase of $20 or more at See’s Candies with this Facebook coupon. It’s good through April 4 at See’s shops only.
  • Boston Market is offering $2.99 meal deals through March 21. Don’t miss the coupons on the Web site, either. It looks as if they have some there all the time.
