When you think about the best day ever, it probably includes eating endless ice cream. Cone after cone of hand-crafted, creative flavors. And since this is the best day ever, they would, of course, all be totally free.

Well, Ben & Jerry’s is doing just that — THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

The famous ice cream company will be giving away free ice cream cones in a flavor of your choice at scoop shops worldwide on Tuesday, April 4, 2017. But the best part is, you don’t just have to settle for one magical treat. Hop back in line and try another flavor.  Then repeat. All day long if you like! No need to BOGO or wear a costume or bring a coupon. Just show up and prepare to feast, if you so desire, from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The first “Free Cone Day” was celebrated in 1979 when company wanted to mark it’s first year of success. The progressive  dairy purveyor has continued the tradition each year since, and today, the annual “Free Cone Day” serves as a “thank you” to the brand’s fans.

For friends nearby, visit Ben & Jerry’s in the Pittsburgh Cultural District at 936 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.
