Ice cream lovers around the world, come together right now to enjoy a free scoop of ice cream.
Today is the day young... and old... ice cream enthusiasts dream of all year round: Free Cone Day!
According to Food&Wine, you can pick up free ice cream at Ben & Jerry's today between 12 p.m. and 8 p.m. in honor of the ice cream shop's 40th annual Free Cone Day.
Ben & Jerry's first started doing Free Cone Day in 1979 as a thank-you to customers for keeping them open throughout their first year.
Ben & Jerry’s CEO Jostein Solheim said: “We believe in having fun, and in thanking our fans with free ice cream as each year goes by. To us it’s a chance to have a bit of a party, to build connections with our fans, and show them how much we appreciate them!”
Now, here's what really makes the day special... Unlike other places where you're only limited to one cone that's usually the smallest possible serving they can give you for free, Ben & Jerry's is actually giving away full-size scoops and cones, AND you can get as many as you want as long as you're willing to get back in line and wait again.
“Your appetite is the only limit to the number of times you can get back in line.”
I will definitely be swinging by Ben & Jerry's on my way home today, and getting myself a free cone... or two or three.
