Let’s face it. Holidays can be a whole lot of hype. The dressing up, cooking, shopping and planning—they’re lots of work! Here’s why Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day is by far our favorite.Read More
While it may seem like Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day is all about our ice cream, it’s really all about you. The day is a way to say thanks for supporting us, and an annual tradition that goes way back to 1979. We like to think that our fans are as unique as our flavours, and half the fun of Free Cone Day is the people you will meet. As you prepare for Free Cone Day on April 4, 2017, read on to learn about a few of the colorful personalities you may encounter. In fact, we just might be describing you!
As the karate master of ice cream, do not attempt to break this deep thinker’s train of thought. Nothing less than 100% focus is required for their analysis and annihilation of their favorite flavour.
The Conspiracy Theorist
Never leaving home without their tinfoil hat, this odd individual is convinced that Wavy Gravy’s demise was a government cover-up and that Elvis works nights at the East Memphis Scoop Shop.
The Repeat Customer
Not going to lie, this person is our favourite. Never satisfied, they get their free scoop and then immediately get back in line for another…over and over again.
We don’t condone secretly skipping school or work for Free Cone Day, but should you choose to, we suggest you follow the Concealer’s lead and disguise yourself to avoid any trouble.
The Overly Concerned Citizen
Constantly in everyone else’s business, this busy bee, who NEEDS to know which flavour everyone is going to get, is convinced that at least 10 people just cut in line, and that all the ice cream is going to run out (impossible!).
We all know the type. They simply can’t decide what flavour to get. Their ability to think freely is frozen, so like everything in life, they follow the herd and get the exact same flavour as their friend.
Last but certainly not least, this victor of all things vanilla and chocolate wears a bib as a shield while they do battle to conquer every flavour on the menu.
Did we forget someone, or did you find yourself? Let us know in the comments. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter who you are. Everyone is welcome at Free Cone Day.
