Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day is back!

On Wednesday, the brand announced the beloved freebie day will return on April 16 at scoop shops nationwide.

Ben & Jerry’s fan appreciation day knows no limits. Customers are "encouraged to get back in line as many times as they’d like" to get multiple free cones, per a release. "Experienced fans understand it’s easiest to jump back in the queue on Free Cone Day with a scoop already in hand."

Why so generous? The brand has a goal to reach 1 million free scoops served on Free Cone Day.

“[Last year] we gave out over 970,000 scoops across the globe, but we know together with our fans we can break 1 million scoops,” Dave Stever, Ben & Jerry’s CEO said in a statement. “We’re asking our fans to really bring it this year: invite their friends, family, neighbors, and help us beat our goal of 1 million scoops on Free Cone Day 2024.”

In 2023, it was the first time in four years that Ben & Jerry’s had Free Cone Day. The last time they celebrated the occasion before the 2023 return was in 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic put a wrench in the happy day.

The special day has been around for over 40 years. In 1979, to celebrate the first full year Ben & Jerry's was launched, the co-founders, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, started the annual tradition, according to a release.

Dairy Queen also brought back their own Free Cone Day for 2024. On March 19, DQ will give out a small vanilla soft serve cone, no purchase necessary. Unlike Ben & Jerry's, this sweet deal is limited to one cone per customer while supplies last.
