Twitter gave me a very important update today:
Somehow, apparently I missed the boat on the most important day of the year: Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day. Luckily, my Twitter feed informed me just in the nick of time. I’m trying to get all of my work done (and my workout) so that I can get in on some of that free scoop action! Why is it that free ice cream is so much more enticing than regular ice cream
For those of you that want the details on this very special day, please see below:
“As part of the Burlington, Vt.-based company’s annual Free Cone Day, customers who visit a participating Ben & Jerry’s locations noon to 8 p.m. today, April 12 will receive a free ice cream cone. The promotion is designed to thank customers for their patronage and to celebrate the company’s 33 years of business.”
In addition to traditional flavors, Ben & Jerry’s stores also will offer customers a number of new — and returning — flavors:
• Late Night Snack (inspired by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) – Vanilla bean ice cream made with vanilla, a salty caramel swirl and fudge covered potato chip clusters;
• Bonnaroo Buzz (inspired by the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival) — Light coffee and malt ice creams with whiskey caramel swirls and English toffee pieces;
• Stephen Colbert’s AmeriCone Dream — Vanilla ice cream with fudge covered waffle cone pieces and a caramel swirl being offered for the first time in a cone; and
• A top secret flavor — Peanut butter ice cream with caramel cluster pieces and peanut buttery and marshmallow swirls.
I’ll have a full recap of my ice cream adventures later tonight! Stay tuned
