Looking for a down-home helping of comfort food between those big, fancy winter meals you’re making?

If you live in the American South, you’re in luck: Shoney’s is celebrating a holiday this December that might just eclipse Christmas. (Well, almost.)

As its website proclaims, “Hot fudge cake day is coming!” Um… yes, please.

And you guessed right: Shoney’s is serving up the delicious dessert totally free.

Here’s When to Nab a Free Dessert From Shoney’s

Lots of menus describe their items as “world famous,” but in the case of Shoney’s hot fudge cake, it might actually be deserved.

Two fudgy slices of cake sandwich a serving of cool, sweet vanilla ice cream — and it’s all topped with a generous helping of fudge sauce, whipped cream and, of course, a cherry.

Want to try the concoction free of charge? Just head to your local Shoney’s on Dec. 6, smile and say, “Please.”

No purchase is necessary, per a rep’s Facebook comment… but don’t forget to tip your server, even if you don’t order anything else!
