Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day started in 1979. It was a way to thank everyone for the support shown that first business year in the renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont. The business had humbly begun with a USD5 correspondence course on how to make ice cream and a USD12,000 investment.
Today scoop shops all over the world (including Adelaide) celebrate Free Cone Day together. In 2015, over 1,000,000 scoops of ice cream were given away worldwide. Will one of these scoops be yours this year?
My favourite scoop flavours are either a cookie affair, chocolate chip cookie dough, chunky monkey, coconut seven layer bar or strawberry cheesecake.
