To the uninitiated, that might look like a random jumble of words.

To Ben & Jerry’s fans, though, that sentence conjures up some of the best feelings this universe has to offer.

‘Cuz they’re ice cream flavors. Insanely delicious ice cream flavors. (Can you tell I’m a total fangirl?)

And you can try them for FREE on Ben & Jerry’s 39th annual Free Cone Day on Tuesday, April 10.

Here’s what to do if you want your free ice cream…

How to Get Free Ben & Jerry’s

On April 10, head to the Ben & Jerry’s location nearest you between noon and 8 p.m.

Because this is a popular event — people have been lining up to get their free cones since it started in 1979 — it’s smart to get there early.

Having grown up next to Vermont, where Ben & Jerry’s was founded, I’m a diehard fan.

Not only does the company make amazing ice cream, it’s also driven by strong values and an admirable mission.  

In its own words, “We make the best possible ice cream in the best possible way.”

So you can bet I’ll be there — though what flavor I’ll get is always a game time decision.
