It’s the most delicious of food holidays! Today is the 35th annual Ben and Jerry’s Free Cone Day! We recommend getting out there to your local Ben and Jerry’s scoop shop before the line gets too long. You can choose up to two free scoops of any flavor you want (but you can only get one at a time, and will have to wait in line again to savor the second scoop). This year, the beloved ice cream company is looking to break its own record by giving away 1 million ice cream cones.
Why not try the brand-new (and delicious) core flavors, as tested and approved by The Daily Meal?
But today is not just about the delicious frozen treats; it’s about giving back to the community. Ben and Jerry’s has been doling out scoops on Free Cone Day every year while also partnering with local non-profit organizations to help raise money for community organizations.
“There is no better way to celebrate with worthwhile community partners than by using our biggest and best celebration of the year, Free Cone Day, as a way to shine the light on their efforts,” said Dave Stever, Ben & Jerry’s chief marketing officer.
