I give you three of the best words in the English language.

1. Free

2. Chocolate

3. Fridays

Since May 8, Mars has been giving away 250,000 coupons of free chocolate every Friday.  Think downloadable coupons for free 3 Musketeers, Dove, M&Ms, Snickers, Twix, and Milky Way, in exchange for filling out an online form (name, address, and email). So far, no Oprah Hooplas have been reported but the “overwhelming response” on its first week prompted the chocolate company to double its free coupons the next Friday.

Mars Real Chocolate Relief Act is the company’s way of offering chocolate-covered respite to the millions of Americans affected by the recession. Note that the coupons redeem full-size packages and not one measly chocolate bar. Isn’t that sweet?

Click here for Free Chocolate Fridays. The campaign runs until the end of September. Stock up!

Who says chocolate isn’t the answer to everything?
