That means just what you think: Today you can head into a Ben and Jerry’s shop—quick, find your nearest one—any time between noon and 8 p.m. and somehow you’ll be given a free ice cream cone.
If you’re the inquisitive type, here’s Ben & Jerry’s explanation for this dessert miracle:[lborder]
1979 marked the first ever Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day in the history of history! It was our way of thanking everyone for all the love and support they showed us that first year of business in a renovated petrol station in Burlington, Vermont, USA. Since then, Free Cone Day has only gotten bigger and better and is now celebrated all over the world![/lborder]
And if you’re the indecisive type, here’s a quiz—seriously—to help you decide what flavor you’re going to get.
Also, we talked to your bosses, and they said go ahead and take a half day to make sure you get in line at Ben & Jerry’s soon enough.
