On the 12th April 2016 Free Cone Day will be upon us. Endless supplies of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream for just standing in a queue. Will you be there?
If you like free ice cream you might want to carry on reading.
Actually let me rephrase that; if you like free Ben and Jerry’s ice cream which you can eat without paying for it then you have to carry on reading.
Free Cone Day is a yearly worldwide event held on one day between the end of March and beginning of May and it’s where the ice cream brand Ben and Jerry’s hand out free cream cups and cones to anyone who wants to queue.
Each year over one million free cones are given away (well it is free ice cream) which caused the phrase “Be One In A Million” to be coined by Ben and Jerry’s.
This year Free Cone Day is being held on the 14th April and, although not 100% confirmed in the UK as yet, it will most probably run from 12pm to 8pm. If it’s the same as last year (and I’m guessing it will be) the free cones will only be available at participating cinema scoop shops across the country.
How do I get free Ben and Jerry’s ice cream?
On the 12th April 2016 Ben and Jerry’s will be giving away one free scope of their deliciously tasting ice cream or frozen yoghurt to every person that queues at any participating Free Cone Day Scoop Shop.
Although Ben and Jerry’s reserve the right to stop, postpone or even cancel the event, I’m sure this won’t happen (it never has yet) and if you are partial to the odd scoop of ice cream then put this day in your calender – now!
Oh just one more thing. Once you’ve queued in line and managed to get your free cone, feel free to rejoin the queue again, and again, and again, for as much free Ben and Jerry’s ice cream you can handle!
Penny for your thoughts: Are you going to grab some ice cream on Free Cone Day this year?
