Free Cone Day has been happening each year at Ben & Jerry’s around the country and beyond since 1979 and is still going on strong, with larger and larger crowds each year.    There are absolutely no strings attached to get your free cone and there’s no purchase necessary. Ben & Jerry’s does this promotion annually in the spring to show how much they love and support their customers.
 

Last year, Ben & Jerry’s gave away over 1 million scoops!

What’s Available on Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day

This once a year event is held every year in the spring and anyone who stops in on Free Cone Day will get a free single scoop ice cream cone in their choice of flavor.  There’s a limit of one cone per person but you are welcome to bring in everyone in the family to get their own free ice cream cone.  Here are our top 5 flavors that you need to try!
 

5. Peanut Buttah Core – It may be Ben & Jerry’s most recent peanut butter flavor, but it’s already one of the best. They should’ve been speaking like the Coffee Talk ladies this whole time.
4. Chocolate Fudge Brownie – It’s simple, elegant, and totally worth the streaks of chocolate you’re liable to leave all over your face.
3. Peanut Butter Cup – Jacked-up Moose Tracks. The peanut butter cup bits are enormous (which is wonderful) and the ice cream base isn’t too rich. 10/10 would recommend.
2. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough – Ben & Jerry’s was the first one on the cookie dough ice cream scene, and 30 years later, it remains a pinnacle of human achievement.
1. Cherry Garcia = This pint is a classic, and anyone who tells you otherwise is a Bolshevik. Cherry ice creams all too often veer into cough syrup territory, but not this one, ’cause it has actual cherry chunks. And chocolate. Also Grateful Dead references, so there’s something for everyone.

Making the Most Out of Free Cone Day

If you’re not sure you want one of our five top flavors above to get on your free cone, Ben & Jerry’s has a guide, called Flavor Karma, that will help you choose a flavor to support a cause that’s important to you.   You can choose certain flavors that help with employment, small-scale farmers, animal rights, clean water, equal rights, non-GMO’s, and political corruption.
