In recent months, several U.S. restaurant chains have given away food in an effort to boost customer traffic.

McDonald's Corp. (Research) in February gave away free samples of its new fried chicken strips for three days, a tactic competitors later said hurt their sales.

Wendy's International Inc. (Research) also gave away free frosty drinks following the arrest of a woman who claimed she found a human finger in a bowl of Wendy's chili, an event that triggered intense media attention and hampered the chain's sales.



Ok now I'm mad  >:( free chicken.
