Are You Ready For Free Ice Cream?


There’s no such thing as a free lunch right? Wrong, well when lunch means ice cream (yes, I have done it before).

The lovely people over at Ben & Jerry’s have recognised out obsession with the sweet stuff and have made Tuesday 9th April (put it in your diaries now) Free Cone Day.

Free Cone Day you say? Don’t panic, the wafer will be filled with your choice of ice cream.

Back in 1979 the founders Ben and Jerry hosted the first Free Cone Day giving out scoops of ice cream to the local community and it’s been going on ever since.

This year the day is also helping the Supporting Better Dairy Campaign which is working to the introduction a minimum standard for European dairy cows. Ice-cream eaters will be asked to sign a petition in store to support the campaign.

So how can you get yours? Well it’s only available at selected scoop shops and I’d advise going early to avoid the queues.

Also – although you’re only allowed one scoop, you can go back for as many as you want.

“There is nothing else in the world like Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day,” said Ben & Jerry’s CEO Jostein Solheim.

“We’re fortunate to have people who support us, so we continue the yearly tradition just to say thanks again,” he adds.
