Today is apparently National Slider Day. Before you roll your eyes at yet another oddly specific food holiday, however, remember that food holidays usually translate to free food, and NSD is no different. Today, and today only, you can get one free single slider and a small freestyle drink at White Castle. 

The day, created by none other than White Castle themselves, will treat customers to a free single slider, excluding waffles and doubles, with seemingly no strings attached. The press release and coupon that's being distributed on social media doesn't note that any purchase is necessary, so you can just walk in and claim your free food. Um, yes please. 

While you're there, you can purchase a White Castle-scented candle (seriously) and enjoy the fresh smell of fast food burgers in your home for a mere $10. But in all seriousness, 100 percent of proceeds from the candle will go to Autism Speaks, so consider picking one of these up. Could be a fun graduation or early Father's Day gift, no?

If you aren't able to make it to a White Castle location today, don't freak out. Check your email or subscribe to the chain's email list if you have yet to do so and you'll receive a coupon for $1 off any four-pack or larger of frozen White Castle sliders at the grocery store. They've recently added breakfast and vegan-friendly sliders to their retail lineup so you'll for sure want to give those a try. (Like in the actual restaurant, the vegan sliders feature mini patties by popular veggie-centric brand, Dr. Praeger's.)

If you're not already looking for your car keys to drive to White Castle or the grocery store, keep in mind the National Slider Day deal at the restaurant is only good for today. So, make your afternoon snack and/or dinner plans accordingly, friends.
