It’s your lucky day, HollywoodLifers! Free Ice Cream Day is here, once again, this time thanks to Ben & Jerry’s! We have the scoop on how to score a delicious, frozen treat without forking over any cash on April 4.
Free Cone Day: have you ever heard three more beautiful words? Your favorite hippie ice cream purveyor, Ben & Jerry’s, is hosting its annual tradition of giving away a free single scoop of any flavor. The scoop of ice cream can be served in a cone or a cup, and is being given away from 12pm to 8pm local time around the world on April!
How cool is that? They’re giving customers plenty of time to score their favorite treat during the work day, so people can line up during their lunch hour, or head out after quitting time! There’s a huge list of Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops participating in the promotion, and you can find out if one of the locations by you is on that list by checking HERE.
Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day was first celebrated in 1979 as the duo’s way of thanking their customers for their loyalty and friendship after their first year of business. It’s a worldwide, household name now, but Ben & Jerry’s used to operate out of a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont! How crazy is that? They’ve kept up the tradition by thanking each and every one of the customers who have supported them over nearly 40 years in business. So cool!
This has really been a great time for free treats. Dairy Queen just had their Free Cone Day on March 20, which gifted customers a free small vanilla soft serve. Yum! That annual event raises money in donations for the hildren’s Miracle Network Hospitals; in 2016, they raised $200,000!
