Sometime today, Tuesday, April 9, 2013, you can drop by your local Ben & Jerry’s and pick up a free ice cream cone.
Says the premium ice cream maker on its website, "Is there a better way to say thank you than free ice cream? Not if you’re Ben & Jerry’s! On Tuesday, April 9, Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops around the world will host the 34th annual Free Cone Day. Since its first anniversary in 1979, Ben & Jerry’s has thrown open the scoop shop doors and invited fans of all ages in for a free cup or cone. The annual celebration is a way for the company to celebrate and say thank you for another year of support."
And just how many cones will Ben and Jerry’s be giving away? Says the site, "This year, more people are enjoying Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day than ever. From Europe to Asia and back to North America, more than 1 million cones will be given out during the annual celebration."
The site adds, "To confirm Free Cone Day participation and hours, make sure to check out the Scoop Shop Locator at www.benjerry.com or contact your local Scoop Shop in advance."
