Customers who visit the participating Thorntons site get a free nugget ice sample from the Nug Truck and a free fountain drink upon entering the store.
Thorntons has partnered with Scotsman Ice Systems to bring the Nug Truck to two Thorntons stores this week. The Nug Truck is a mobile truck that serves nugget ice, a chewable ice that has gained a passionate following nationwide.
On Tuesday, June 21, the nugget ice truck will greet customers at Thorntons store No. 154, located at 3300 Bardstown Road; from 4-6 p.m., handing out free 12-ounce samples of chewable nugget ice. Thorntons will also offer a free fountain fill to any customer who comes into the store with this 12-ounce “Luv the Nug” cup.
The Nug Truck will make a second stop on Wednesday, June 22, at Thorntons store No. 98, located at 4136 Cane Run Road; from 1-3 p.m, and Thorntons will offer the same free fountain drink promotion.
The Nug Truck is part of the Nugget Nation, a digital community of ice chewers located at www.LuvtheNug.com.
Headquartered in Louisville, Ky., Thorntons operates 163 gasoline and convenience stores, car washes and travel plazas in five states: Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee.
