Free cake.

Now those are some sweet words.

During April 2019 several big-name restaurants in the Fresno/Clovis area are offering free deals. They include the cake, a free burrito on National Burrito Day and tax-time deals.

They usually have strings attached, so check the fine print.

A free burrito is available at fast-food chain El Pollo Loco on National Burrito Day, Thursday, April 4. You must first buy a burrito of equal or lesser value, and show or print a coupon from the restaurant’s website.

A free confetti bundtlet (a cake the size of a large cupcake) will be given away at the Nothing Bundt Cakes bakery, at Herndon and Willow avenues, Tuesday, April 9. The company is celebrating the opening of its 300th store and giving away up to 300 of the little cakes.

But check out this fine print: Nothing Bundt Cakes is only giving away the bundtlets for 300 seconds. That’s five minutes, starting at 3 p.m. local time and ending at 3:05 p.m. Limit one per person. No coupon needed.
