It comes but once a year: Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's. If you're near a participating location on Tuesday, March 23, between noon and 8 p.m., wait in line (likely one that snakes around the block, but moves fairly quickly) and get your free scoop! If you're lucky, they'll have some of the new 2010 flavors: Boston Cream Pie, Dulce Delish, Maple Blondie, Mud Pie, Peanut Brittle, and our most favorite of all, Milk & Cookies. Find a Ben & Jerry's near you here.
A little Free Cone Day history: it all started in 1979 when co-founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield scooped free ice cream all day as a "thank you" to customers for supporting them in their first near. Now it's become an annual event, and practically a holiday.
