Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day
Ben & Jerry’s, who broke the mold for businesses showing you could make a profit while giving back to the community, is proud to celebrate its 31st annual Free Cone Day, the original community give-back. Why did they do it thirty-one years ago? The two guys, who had surprised themselves by surviving their first year in business, genuinely wanted to just say “thanks.”
Around the globe from 12:00 noon – 8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21st the socially-minded ice cream maker, with the fun and funky flavors, will be scooping it out for free to share the love just like the company has since 1979. Scoop Shops will proudly introduce the company’s newest values-led flavor, Chocolate Macadamia. The flavor features Fair Trade vanilla, Fair Trade chocolate and sustainably-harvested macadamia nuts.
