Free Ice Cream Cones For All!

by Venditto (writer), Sty Town, April 28, 2008


On Tuesday April 29th Ben & Jerry's gives out FREE ice cream cones at almost ALL their locations.

Let the gluttonous dance for joy! Let the stingy sing praises to the heavens! For once again one of the grooviest days of the year is almost upon us. This Tuesday, Ben & Jerry pop open the vault and whip out free ice cream cones nationwide! I am so culinarily aroused that I can't stop using exclamation points!

We're talking free ice cream people, and not just vanilla or chocolate either. We're talking the good shit: Cherry Garcia and Chocolate Fudge Brownie. Pick your poison folks. Those magnificent, billionaire hippies Ben & Jerry (god bless them) will supply it, and for one day they'll do it for free.

On the negative side it's a spookily similar marketing campaign used by crack dealers. They get you addicted by giving you that first hit for free, then before you know it you're life's become a John Singleton movie. On the positive side: it's free ice cream and that's always a good thing.

Last year I visited every Ben & Jerry's in Manhattan so I could report on it here for my fellow Broohooians. You can check that article out here. You can also click here to find the closest participating shop and plan an attack on as many locations as possible (this is a strategy I highly reccommend).

It's not just about the free ice cream either. Every location chooses a pet charity. At each location they promote awaremess about that charity and ask for donations. So whilst we break multiple deadly sins by gouging our maws with free ice cream, we can repay some of that karmic debt by donating our snack money to a worthwhile cause. On free ice cream cone day, everybody wins!
