Ben & Jerry's Free Cone DayThis Tuesday sees the welcome return of the annual Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day, a chance to forget about the freezing temperatures outside and embrace some brain freeze instead. Founders of the quirky ice cream company, Ben and Jerry, had their first Free cone Day in 1979, where free scoops were provided for the local community to say thank you for believing in their small company. Despite becoming a global success, this tradition has continued every year since. Selected London Ben & Jerry stores will be inviting flavour fans to indulge on free scoops all day, whether it's one of the intriguing new flavours or one of the old classics. Only one scoop is allowed at a time, but feel free to queue as many times as you like and make the most of this tasty occasion! The 35th Free Cone Day will be in support of the Better Dairy Campaign. So, when you've had your fill of ice cream goodness, be sure to sign the petition.

Participating London stores can be found in Camden Town, Greenwich, Holloway, Kensington, Kingston, Marble Arch, Richmond, Wimbledon and more. To find your nearest participating store, visit the Ben & Jerry's website.


 

About Ben & Jerry's

Fosil Fuel, Phish Food and Baked Alaska, no, not a tour of the Natural History Museum but the names that Ben & Jerry have come up with for their quirky ice cream flavours. Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield have turned the US-style scoop shop from humble beginnings in a gas station in Vermont into a global brand. More about Ben & Jerry's
