Ben & jerry’s free cone day

Phish Food, Cherry Garcia, Chunky Monkey, Half Baked.

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 37th annual Free Cone Day, which takes place on Tuesday, April 12.

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

How to Get Free Ben & Jerry’s

On April 12, head to the Ben & Jerry’s location nearest you between 12 and 8 pm.

Since this is a popular event — last year, the company gave away one million scoops — 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 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.

Your Turn: What’s your favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor?
