Freddy’s offering 89-cent custard scoops

The problem with this promotion is that I simply cannot leave Freddy’s with just a bowl of custard. If I’m in there, I gotta have a steak burger — and probably a side of those matchstick fries, too.

But if you have more self control than I do, you’ll be able to use this news. To celebrate the 89th birthday of Freddy’s co-founder and namesake, Freddy Simon, the chain is offering 89-cent scoops of its frozen custard. The offer applies to either chocolate or vanilla custard in either a traditional cake cone or a dish. The deal is good from Friday through Feb. 27.

The restaurant also is asking fans to wish Freddy a happy birthday via social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  If you do, use the hashtag #happybirthdayfreddy
