Get your lick on: Free Ben & Jerry's ice cream Tuesday


Grab your ice cream bibs, round up a gang of friends, and flex those tongue muscles. It's almost Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's.

Trust us: This is the very best day of spring. Who cares if you have to stand in line for 30+ minutes for a free cone of ice cream you could pick up in a pint at the grocery store? It's free and delicious and you get to watch stressed out scoopers sweat on your dessert. Totally worth the wait.

Ben & Jerry's locations will be open from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday giving out a free scoop of ice cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet to every patient person who walks through the door. They've been doing this for awhile now, so you'll be quite surprised how quickly these kids move. They're pretty much experts at giving away free goodness.

Just kidding. You should probably stay home. We wouldn't want to wait in an extremely long line because you saw this post.
