What is Ben and Jerry’s Free Cone Day?
Ben & Jerry’s has held Free Cone Days as a way to give back to its customers since 1979, which was then a celebration of its first year in business.
Ben & Jerry’s opened its first scoop shop in a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont in the US in 1978.
In 2010, countries all over the world started participating in the tasty event, and in 2015, more than one MILLION free scoops were distributed across the globe.
A spokesperson for the ice cream giant said: “Every time you enjoy a scoop of Ben & Jerry’s, you’re showing us how much you care.
“We love you too, and Free Cone Day is our favourite way to show it!”

This year’s ice cream extravaganza will take place on Tuesday April 9 between 12pm and 8pm.
If possible, you should consider taking a bit of time out of your day to dedicate to the event.
We all love a good freebie, so there will undoubtedly be a bit of a queue for the free cones.Where can you get a free ice cream cone?
Free cones with one scoop of ice cream will be handed out at a number of Ben & Jerry’s locations across Britain, including its own standalone shops and cinema concessions.
Not all scoop shops will be participating in the event, so make sure you check first before getting your hopes up and making the trip to the store.
You can find your nearest participating ice cream venue by visiting the official Ben and Jerry’s website – you’ll need to enter your postcode and tick the “Participate Free Cone Day” box.
The Sun has asked the ice cream maker how many cones it’ll give away this year, but we haven’t yet heard back.
