I’ve always been the type of person that would eat ice cream year ’round. Halloween? Mint chocolate chip will do me. Christmas? Sure, gimme a scoop of that good ol’ cookies ‘n’ cream. I don’t care if it’s snowing outside; it’s warm in my apartment, so bring on the ice cream!

If you’re wondering why I’m talking about my ice cream preferences so much, it’s simply because today – Tuesday, April 8th – marks that special annual occurrence we all look forward to: Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day! The lines are long, but the flavors are plentiful and if you’re willing to wait a little while, you can get a free ice cream cone (or cup!) from your local Ben & Jerry’s store gratis (that’s Latin for free because I’m fancy) from 12pm – 8pm.

There’s an interactive map of all the locations offering the free cone over at the Ben & Jerry’s website. In the meantime, you can watch the video below to get excited for Free Cone Day and then think long and hard about what flavor you’ll choose. Their new Salted Caramel Blondie sounds pretty delicious. Ugh, now I need to go to Ben & Jerry’s.
