Mark Your Calendar, Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day Is April 14 [VIDEO]

I grew up on ice cream. During the hot Southern summers of my youth, every night my mom dished us up a scoop of Blue Bunny or Blue Bell ice cream for dessert. But after high school, I headed East and soon my New York friends introduced me to the delicious marvel called Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream. It was love at first taste, and ever since I’ve been a loyal fan. 

One of my favorite things about the company? Every year, Ben and Jerry’s holds Free Cone Day. This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, April 14 between noon and 8 p.m. It is the company’s way of saying thanks to all its fans, and we’ve come to anticipate the annual celebration the way some folks look forward to their favorite holiday. Just think, “Cherry Garcia,” “Chunky Monkey,” and “Chubby Hubby,” for free!

Whatever your favorite flavor is, it’s pretty likely lots of other folks in your neighborhood have a passion for Ben and Jerry’s too. So be ready to stand in line. But don’t worry, there are lots of fun ways to pass the time, including talking to strangers, starting a sing-a-long or calling your friends to tell them to book it to their local Ben & Jerry’s. If you’re not sure where that is, you can search for it here.

So what’s your favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream? Tell us in the comments below!
