It's not quite a national holiday, but some would argue that Free Cone Day 2014 should be just that. Free Cone Day is Ben & Jerry's way of showing their customers appreciation.
Customers will be able to go to one of Orlando's four Ben & Jerry's locations to get a free scoop of ice cream in a cone on Tuesday from noon to 8 p.m.
According to the Huffington Post, 35 years ago Ben & Jerry's founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield had just survived their first year of running a business. They wanted to thank the community that had supported them and decided on free ice cream cones.
Fans can choose any flavor they'd like, but they'll also be able to try Ben & Jerry's newest flavors, which include:
Salted Caramel Blondie: Sweet cream ice cream with blonde brownies and a salted caramel swirl.
Hazed and Confused: Hazelnut and chocolate ice creams with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge swirl.
Cotton Candy: Cotton candy ice cream loaded with cotton candy pieces.
