Explanation:
Con la compra de _______ puedes elegir gratis entre tres opciones de productos.

Se usa mucho la palabra "treat" en inglés. Por ejemplo, a los perros se les da un "treat" cuando hacen alguna gracia. Lamentablemente no hay un equivalente exacto en castellano, por lo que se debe modular y parafrasear la expresión.

Thank you. You are right, there is no exact translation for this term. The closest I have found is "delicia" and it does have the full meaning. Thanks to the rest of you for your help, but "treat" does not only mean sweets.
