It’s an end of an era. The iconic Frosty Freeze Out is no more. That’s right, today the Sixers announced via a press release that the Frosty Freeze Out will now be replaced with Bricken for Chicken.
For those living under a rock, the Frosty Freeze Out was when an opponent missed two consecutive free throws in the second half of a home game, everyone in attendance won a free Wendy’s Frosty. No it looks like dessert is being replaced with some nuggets.
The same rules are still in place for Bricken for Chicken but now Sixers fans will have a chance to enjoy chicken nuggets from Chick-fil-A. For vegetarians and vegans this isn’t great news, but the lactose intolerance crowd is rejoicing.
The new promotion starts Thursday October 20th versus the Bucks. Here’s what the Sixers stated, “Bricken for Chicken, presented by Chick-fil-A: Chick-fil-A will be the Presenting Partner of an exciting, fan-engaging, in-game trigger promotion!
