BREAKING: Today is Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day.
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:
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!
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.
