Free Ice Cream! May 12 Is Free Häagen-Dazs Cone Day

This is certainly a way to perk up your bad case of the Monday blues: free ice cream. Häagen-Dazs' annual free ice cream cone day takes place on May 12. Lucky guests who live near a Häagen-Dazs scoop shop will get one free kiddie-sized scoop of ice cream in a waffle cone, available in any flavor, including two of the ice cream company's new "premium artisan" flavors: chocolate caramelized oat and banana rum jam.

You can get your fill of free ice cream any time between 4 and 8 p.m. at all participating Häagen-Dazs scoop shops. And if you're craving something else sweet and frozen, the company is giving away free scoops of sorbet and gelato as well.

Häagen-Dazs' artisan collection was handcrafted by craftsmen and women from across the country. Chocolate caramelized oat and banana rum jam are just two of the unique flavors in the new line that launched in March, which also includes spiced pecan Turtle, ginger molasses cookie, and Applewood smoked caramel almond. Or if you're not feeling adventurous, you can just get a scoop of chocolate.
