My kids know they can score a free cookie at the bakery counter when we shop at Rosauers. At 8 and 11 years old now, they’re too big to fit in those car shopping carts anymore, but they still have fond memories of tooling around the aisles, spinning the steering wheel, munching cookies.

Now, prompted by a social media storm about a grocery store that gives out free fruit to kids 12 and younger, three Missoula grocery stores are doing the same, only instead of cookies they’re offering fruit. My kids love fruit of all kinds, so they’ll be thrilled.

But maybe not as thrilled as they are to get free cookies.
