Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day Is the Most Delicious Day of Spring

Yum! 4

ice cream coneListen up, everyone, this is a very important public announcement. Today is Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's. Repeat: Today is Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's! Are you ready, ice cream eaters? Assume the cone-holding position and proceed to your nearest Ben & Jerry's.

Yes, it's the happiest fifth happiest day of the year, right behind Christmas, your birthday, the day after you finish your taxes, and the day you get your tax refund. Hooray!

But wait! You say. How can I find this free ice cream of which you speak? Well I'll tell you.

With this here handy Scoop Shop locator map. Enter your address, or just move the map around and zoom in to the general area where you live. And ta-da! See the little ice cream cones that tell you where you can haz free frozen dessert. Keep in mind, this only goes until 8 p.m. so don't take all night to get over there. Yes, you can order Frozen Greek Yogurt, too.

Now let's talk about favorite flavors. Here are some of mine: Peanut Butter Cup, New York Super Chunk Fudge, and Cherry Garcia. Coffee Heath Bar Crunch pretty much fueled my college years. I also love a long list of other ice cream flavors that Ben & Jerry's does not make (sorry). But the flavor I'm still waiting for is Nutella Chunk. How long is it going to take, icecrengineers?

And by the way, how thrilled am I that I finagled a way to write about ice cream twice in one day? Is this really my life? I cannot believe it. Enjoy your free, creamy frozen desserts.

What are your favorite ice cream flavors?

Remember that article the other day about the beetle- based food coloring that was in some drink being sold by Starbucks? Well if you have a problem with that, don't eat Cherry Garcia ice cream. Its been in there for years. Not that I have a problem with it. Just sayin'...

Ari. Ari.

I don't know what free cone day is like in other states, but here in VT it just causes traffic jams, pissed off cops directing cars/people, extremely long lines, frustration, and aggravation. Maybe I should add I loathe crowds. Seriously, just go to the store and buy some!! Not worth the wait for me at all.

My daughter used to work at a Ben and Jerry's and hated free cone day so I never go.
