Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day is an annual event you won’t want to miss! For the 39th year, the trailblazing Vermont ice cream company will give away free ice cream.
Tuesday, April 4, 2017 is Free Cone Day from noon until 8 p.m. at participating Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops not only here in New England but all over the world. The event was first held in 1979 to thank customers for their support.
Free Cone Day has traditionally been scheduled for the second Tuesday in April, so don’t let this year’s early date sneak up on you. While the ice cream is free, many scoop shops use this opportunity to collect donations for local charities.
Head to your favorite scoop shop, and try one of this year’s new flavors (like Truffle Kerfuffle or Chocolate Cherry Garcia) or a tried and true favorite (mine is Coconut Seven Layer Bar). Save the date, and don’t miss the “most delicious day of the year.” Be sure to tag your social media posts with #FreeConeDay on April 4.
