Ben & Jerry’s started Free Cone Day in 1979 to thank its fans for getting the company through its first year. And to this day, Ben & Jerry’s hands out more than one million free ice cream scoops on its annual “holiday.”, April 10th. As a Ben and Jerry’s freak, I look forward to this every year, and Den and I actually scooped for Ben and Jerry’s for many years on this day to benefit a local charity.

Alas, I see less and less participation from local stores over the years, but here’s a list of some participating NJ stores. You can go to benjerry.com to find out more.
