Free Cupcakes Alert

Here’s something to sweeten your day. Sweetery, in conjunction with Food Network, will be giving away cupcakes tomorrow today for something called the Cupcakes on the Road free cupcake giveaway. While supplies last, you’ll be able to get your free treats in three Midtown locations: 50th street between 6+7th ave from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.; 7th avenue between 36+37th streets from 1:30 to 3:30; and Broadway btw 52+53rd streets from 4:00 to 5:30. Freeloaders engage!

    Isn’t this today, not tomorrow?

    Several flavors inspired by the travel destinations were offered and a free Food Network bag filled with travel promotional magazines. Mini cupcakes though.

  • God dammit, why is it that the only time a truck comes near 37th it’s gonna get swarmed by freeloaders?!

    Well, at least I know where I’m spending my 1:00 lunch now.

      How’s the line? Worth my time going down around 2pm or are the cupcakes all gone?

      • Well, they opened at 1:30, and their spot about 20 yards from the SW corner of 7th and 36th was all the way back to the corner of 37th. It’s crappy weather so that may keep the lightweight freeloaders away, but I was there about 10 minutes early and glad I was.

        It’s worth it more for the free fabric tote bag than the cupcake, they’re about three small bites total. It was just OK… better than Magnolia, not nearly as good as Cupcake Crew or even Crumbs.

        Maybe I got a bad one. Who knows. There are seven or eight different flavors to choose from but I don’t know how long they’ll last.

        Best of luck!

      Which flavor did you try? I got the tropical rum colada just because it’s different and not chocolate.

      • I got the vanilla peanut brittle. There was no brittle, just peanuts, but the icing was well done. The cake part, meh.

  • The line at 2:50 only is about 3 minutes long. Very worth it. Sweet potato cupcake was recommended by the vendor and was delicious. They’re out of rocky road.

    Dear Crumbs employee who was just in line for a free cupcake,

    I like the cut of your jib.

    Yeh, I blew it. I was inbetween meetings and ran out quickly. I thought the truck was on 37th btw 6th and 7th (which didn’t make sense because Broadway splits the two) so I only had time to run out for a minute, didn’t see the truck and had to get ready for another meeting. Can’t believe I missed it!
