FCAT breakfast results: We love free stuff!



Arches Today is the final day of FCAT testing for Florida students, but we already have some results for you. Remember when we broke the news (and got into a nutrition debate) about McDonald's offering a free breakfast for kids on the start of testing March 9? Well, the golden arches report that we love free stuff. To which I say, well duh!

More than 41,000 students in the Tampa Bay area snapped up a free Egg McMuffin, apple dippers and milk (or juice) and more than 191,000 students mobbed McDonald's statewide.

"Local operators feel the overwhelming community support exceeded all expectations for the first-time event and will determine later this year whether the free FCAT breakfast day will become an annual (event)," said a press release from the fast food kings.
