NEW YORK (MainStreet) – It’s finally back: Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s is Tuesday, April 12.
The unofficial start of the ice cream eating season (depending where you live), Free Cone Day is exactly what it sounds like: Go into any Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop and you can get a one-scoop ice cream cone for free. The promotion lasts from noon to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12.
Free Cone Day distinguishes itself from other giveaways by letting you get back in line as many times as you like to get another ice cream cone. With that said, the lines tend to be very long, especially if it’s a hot day. Last time I went to Free Cone Day I waited at least 20 minutes in a line that stretched out the door, so you might not be keen about jumping back in line for another scoop unless you really scream for (free) ice cream.
To find your nearest Scoop Shop, use Ben & Jerry’s store locator or download the company’s app for the iPhone or Android devices. And to make sure you’re prepared once you get to the front of the line, be sure to check whether your favorite flavor is available at your local shop using the flavor locator.
