Mark your calendars for April 4. It’s the day Ben & Jerry’s will be giving away free ice cream cones worldwide.
Free Cone Day started back in 1979 when the little known ice cream shop decided to thank its Vermont community for helping them get through their first year of business. The tradition became international by 2000, and today, Ben & Jerry’s says they give away over a millions scoops of ice cream every year.

“We believe in having fun, and in thanking our fans with free ice cream for our anniversary every year,” said Ben & Jerry’s CEO Jostein Solheim. “Through the power of ice cream, we are able to form strong connections and create positive social change together. Free Cone Day is one way to show our fans how much we appreciate them.”
Free cones are being given away between noon and 8 pm. You can find your local Scoop Shop on their website.
Now, instead of worrying about tax day, you can lose sleep over which flavor you’re going to chose.
