That one day of the year the the world goes nuts at Ben and Jerry’s ice cream stores. Tuesday April8, 2014 marked the official day of lining up for as many scoops as we all could- how many did you have?
“What is Free Cone Day? Well it’s our way to celebrate and say thanks for another year of support, and we’ve kept it up every year since, spreading the peace, love & ice cream around the globe!”
1978 – With a $5 correspondence course in ice cream-making from Penn State and a $12,000 investment ($4,000 of it borrowed), Ben and Jerry open their first ice cream scoop shop in a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont.
Review Rating: =D =) =| =(
Product (Free Cone Day at Ben and Jerry’s): =D
Would I go to Free Cone Day next year? Heck yes! It’s the one day of the year everyone knows about! It’s all over social media and you get a delicious scoop of ice cream. Is it worth the wait? haha yes! Normally a scoop would be $5? I don’t remember but I normally wouldn’t buy it because its so expensive. Even if you go Connoisseur its $7 for a 1L at the supermarkets I think.
Would I donate the money I saved to the organisers for another event? This is a tricky question and I would have to say no. I think $2 investment in next year and get 2 scoops when I queue up would be an incentive.
Highlight: Just eating ice cream. Their ice cream is packed full of chocolate, nuts, caramel, phish, and other goodie treats. Cherish the precious moments, taste buds.
Suggestion of Improvement: I really want the American flavours to hit the stores in Sydney! Half baked, or S’mores, or Chocolate Nougat Crunch.. I remember we got very similar flavours to when the store first opened. People love trying new things and Messina does a brilliant job of bringing out new flavours every week.
Ends: April 8, 2014 BUT there is a free cone truck happening #fightforthereef #scooptour
