Update: Ben & Jerry’s has announced free done day for 2024.

For the first time in four years, Ben & Jerry’s has announced the return of Free Cone Day.

With a goal of serving more than a million scoops globally, Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day will take place nationwide at their Scoop Shops on April 3.

There is no limit to how many cones you can get, and Ben & Jerry’s says you can get in line as many times as you’d like and try any flavor. Some Scoop Shops will also partner with a local nonprofit in their communities for anyone wanting to make a donation when they get their free ice cream.

The freebie went on hold for three years during the pandemic.

Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day began in 1979 as a way to say thank you to fans. Now, more than 40 years later, the company is in 35 countries, and many of their flavors are available in grocery stores.

While the Scoop Shops may have more or different flavors than what you’ll find in stores, there are still more than a dozen flavors you can buy in pints, including their new “Lights! Caramel! Action!,” which is vanilla ice cream with salted caramel swirls, graham cracker swirls and chocolate chip cookie dough.

Other flavors include Cherry Garcia, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Chunky Monkey and another new flavor, Chocolate Milk and Cookies.
