Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day - April 3rd

This press release came into my inbox at short notice, but it does involve free ice-cream, so it's well worth sharing. Ben & Jerry's make delicious ice-cream and are well known for their interest in Fair Trade, sustainable business and all matters green. Since 1978, they have continously maintained the  long standing tradition of Free Cone days to say "thanks" to the cowmoonity that supported their business.
Founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield point the way...
Ben & Jerry's dairyingly delicious Free Cone Day will be hoofing its way to Scoop Shops across Ireland on Tuesday, April 3rd. Fans can try a scoop of tried and tested favourites, along with some exciting new additions to the euphoric flavour freezer.

The hours are a little restricted, probably because all the Scoop Shops are located in cinemas. Free scoops will be available between 6pm and 9pm on April 3rd at the following Scoop Shops:

  • Odeon, The Point Dublin 2
  • UCI, Coolock, Dublin 13
  • UCI, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15
