Kingaroy couple wins Wendy's for a year

A KINGAROY couple has won a year's worth of free ice cream from Wendy's.

Two weeks ago Jenny and Michael Sexton bought a take-home pack of ice cream from the Wendy's in Kingaroy Shoppingworld.

As part of the purchase, they were offered an entry into a national competition to win a year's worth of ice cream.

"I wasn't going to do it,” Michael said.

"But Jenny put my name down and I thought nothing of it.”

Two weeks later the couple received a phone call from the store announcing they were the Queensland winners of the competition.

"I got the call asking if Michael was there, but he was at work,” Jenny said.

"I asked if I could take a message and was told Michael won the free competition.

"I checked their website and we were the only people to win it in Queensland.”

Michael said the win was completely unexpected.

"When Jenny told me I freaked out, I couldn't believe it,” he said.

Michael said his favourite ice cream flavour was rainbow or chocolate chip.

"The tub I bought on the day we entered the competition was rainbow,” he said.

He said he was looking forward to summer.

"It will be good when it gets hot as ice cream is a good way to cool down,” he said.

They plan to share some of the treats with friends.
