Cheesy Free Stuff from Sweetery: Does Sweetery ever sell anything from their truck? I feel like they're always teamed up with some food company giving away free samples. Better news for us, really. From now until October 30, they'll be giving out free cheese samples from Castello Cheese. Three samples will be offered, including Weissbier (doesn't that mean wheat beer?), Bergkase, and Hirten so check their location on Twitter (today they're at 50th bw 6th and 7th) so go and get your free cheese!

More Free Sweet Stuff From Sweetery: Last week it was horse cookies from America's Best Racing, this week the Sweetery is handing out free ice pops (just in time for this sweltering heat) with Clinique. Today, they'll be near 59th & 5th from 9:30am to 10:30am, near 35th and 7th from 11:30-2:30 and near Lex and 59th from 3-5pm. Tomorrow, it's 39th and 5th from 12:30 - 2:30 and 35th and 7th again from 3-5. After your ice pop, they recommend coming in to the nearby Clinique counter at Macy or Bloomingdale's and trying on one of their new lip balms. Um, I think the free ice pop will be moisturizer enough, thank you very much!
