Ice cream lovers will be able to score an extra sweet treat on Tuesday in honor of Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s.
The popular ice cream chain will be giving out a free scoop of ice cream to celebrate the annual holiday. Customers will have to stop by one of the chain’s shops between 12 and 8 p.m. to redeem a complimentary scoop.
“Every time you enjoy a scoop of Ben & Jerry's, you're showing us how much you care. We love you too, & Free Cone Day is our favorite way to show it!” the chain wrote on its website.
Ben & Jerry’s has been celebrating Free Cone Day for nearly 40 years. It began in Burlington, Vermont, in 1979 as a way of thanking their customers for “all the love and support.”
Today, the chain continues the tradition, and plans to hand out more than 1 million scoops of ice cream at shops across the world.
Anyone with a sweet tooth should probably prepare for long lines, too: Although each visitor is technically limited to one scoop, the chain has stated that a customer's appetite "is the only limit to the number of times you can get back in line.”
