CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A special hello to everyone who inquired where I went the past couple weeks. I was fortunate enough to spend some time in Hawaii with friends. It s good to be back though, and something funny...the deals start with a Hawaii-esque fruit!

Earth Fare has a new coupon here. Campaign where you can get a free pineapple with any $5 purchase!

(Now, I don t know if these are from Hawaii or are as delectable as the fruit there but I m not one to turn down a free pineapple if you re going to spend $5 in store anyway.)

Meantime, something including fruit...TCBY yogurt and toppings! To kick off their grand opening in the Quail Corners shopping center, December 17th, this Saturday, you can get a free fro-yo just for showing up!

No purchase is necessary, and the offer is good all day long. (Location: 8502 Park Road. Phone: 704-556-5959)

Lastly, something totally not in the realm of healthy, the new Burger King french fries! Today only, you can get a free value sized carton of their new thicker, crispier French fries.

You know the battle for the fast-food fry is a tough one, with chains like Wendy s offering up a new formula earlier this year. Check it out www.bk.com PS: No purchase is necessary.

Enjoy the deals and see you on TV!
