Ben & Jerry's Is Giving Away Free Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry's is a classic comfort food, and if you don't agree well then I'm sorry, you're wrong. Sitting down with a tub of Chocolate Therapy or Half-Baked on a Friday night to watch a movie or just relax is an ideal way to spend an evening.

Over the years, the ice cream franchise has found ways to make their product even better. If tubs of ice cream aren't your thing, why not try their breakfast cereal?

Or you could always go for their pint slices, which are a handheld piece of heaven.

But sometimes all you need is a scoop of ice cream to make your day better. Ben & Jerry's has tested out many flavors in the past, including a pear one that lasted less than a year, in order to make sure when you step into one of their scoop shops you're getting the best experience possible.

One of the major complaints about the treat, though, is that it costs too much money. A pint can cost up to $8, while a scoop can cost $5. It's a little extreme considering you can buy a full tub of regular ice cream for $3.

However, once a year, Ben & Jerry's gives away FREE ice cream, and you should probably mark that day in your calendar.

For the 40th consecutive year, Ben & Jerry's will be having a Free Cone Day for all their fans, where you can head to any scoop shop and treat yourself to a flavor of your choosing.

On April 10th between the hours of noon and 8pm, grab a friend and stop by a scoop shop near you and enjoy free ice cream!

As the warmer weather slowly starts to roll in, what better way is there to celebrate? And if you're not sure what flavor to try, these are the most popular Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors.
