Let’s face it. Holidays can be a whole lot of hype. The dressing up, cooking, shopping and party planning—it’s a lot of work! That’s why Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day is by far our favorite. What other holiday lets you show up to the party uninvited, wearing anything you want, and still gives you a gift? That’s right…no holiday ever. Use the following list to convince your boss or teacher that you need the day off to celebrate Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day 2016 on April 12.
Everyone is invited!
No guest list, no invite, no RSVP, just show up. We welcome everyone. Even your weird uncle.
Why shop ‘til you drop?
At Free Cone Day there’s no need to spend a dime, stress over what size someone wears, or wrestle with wrapping paper.
Wear whatever you want!
No black tie, ball gown or costume required, although we do suggest clothing of some kind.
Leave the “cooking” to us.
Nothing (not even a root canal) is more painful than having to prepare a five course meal for a group of people who all want something different.
Smiles all around!
What’s not to love about a free cone of any flavor you want? Seriously! It puts a smile on everyone’s face (unlike that turtleneck you re-gifted that had the comfort of a cactus).
No awkward family interactions.
We all love our families, but let’s face it…bring them ALL together under one roof for the first time in three years and you’re living on the edge!
You can put this holiday on repeat.
Why wait for next year’s Free Cone Day? Just get back in line for another free cone. Over and over again. We’re not counting. Really, go for it.
Rain or shine, we’re scooping!
Not hail, nor sleet, nor snow, nor rain, nor…you get the idea. Rest assured, we’re scooping free Ben & Jerry’s no matter what!
No need to travel far.
Planes, trains and automobiles equal lost luggage, missed connections and flat tires. Lucky for you, there’s a solid chance you’ll find a Scoop Shop near you.
Free ice cream!
