Free Cone Day Is On The Way
Ben & Jerry’s of Atlanta Scoops Out Fun and Free Flavors on April 9
Atlanta, GA, April 9th, 2019 – The most anticipated day of the year is just around the corner. Ben & Jerry’s will give away more than a million scoops of ice cream on April 9, 2019 as part of its annual Free Cone Day.
Since 1979, Ben & Jerry’s has dished out free ice cream once a year to thank its fans for being so uniquely awesome. The tradition began in Vermont and now spans the globe. Fans are invited to Ben & Jerry’s of Atlanta, located at 312 N. Highland Ave. NE Atlanta, GA 30307, from 12:00noon to 8:00pm to join the fun.
Ben & Jerry’s was founded on the idea that business has the opportunity, and the responsibility, to give back to its community. Free Cone Day is fun way to recognize that responsibility, and as Co-Founder Jerry Greenfield once said, “If it’s not fun, why do it?”
"We love getting involved with and giving back to our communities. That’s why we’re partnering with the Atlanta Beltline to raise awareness and support for the alignment and convening of partners to fulfill the Atlanta Beltline’s vision. It’s amazing what we can do together over shared values and several scoops of ice cream," said Phillip Scotton, Operator of Ben & Jerry’s Atlanta. Ben & Jerry’s advocates for social causes like marriage equality and climate justice and makes its ice cream in the best way possible, which includes sourcing Fairtrade and non-GMO ingredients.
Ben & Jerry’s continues to deliver on the chunky and funky flavors fans have grown to love and expect. This year, fans can choose from classics like Cherry Garcia or new favorites like Wake & No Bake Cookie Dough Core. There’s no limit to the number of scoops you get, as long as you get back in line each time.
So the biggest question is, which flavor will you have on Free Cone Day?
