Reminder: McDonald’s will be handing out free soft serve this weekend

If your calendar isn’t already marked, then pencil in a celebration for National Ice Cream Day on Sunday. A ton of different dairy venues are hosting specials this weekend, including our fave fast food chain. Come Sunday, July 16th, participating McDonald’s will be doling out free vanilla cones all day, baby!

In order to get your free Mickey D’s cone, download the McDonald’s app and redeem the Free Vanilla Cone offer. For a chance to win the “Golden Arches Cone,” an exclusive, limited edition cone that guarantees the recipient a lifetime supply of McDonald’s soft serve, redeem your Free Vanilla Cone offer between 2 and 5 p.m. local time.

Get at us, Golden Arches Cone.

This Sunday’s ice cream-filled fun-day will follow McDonald’s 24-hour #SoftServed campaign. Specifically, the company teamed up with Nerdist to write personalized compliments to fans and customers via Twitter that turn the saying “You’ve been served” on its head.

Sunday’s Free Vanilla Cone promotion also celebrates McDonald’s recent changes to its soft serve recipe. In May, the company announced that their soft serve does not contain artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Alongside the soft serve improvements, McDonald’s is in the process of removing preservatives from their McNuggets, switching to cage-free eggs by 2025 in the U.S. and Canada, and only using chicken meat from chickens not treated with antibiotics important to human medicine.

That news makes us ~very~ excited.

Download the app ASAP to make sure you don’t miss your opportunity at a free vanilla soft serve on Sunday — or the opportunity to win soft serve for life. McDonald’s, you’re working miracles and we like it.
