What to Know

  • Tuesday, May 14
  • 4 to 8 p.m.
  • The event raises bee habitat awareness

Making a buzz?

Plenty of once-a-year events can create a lot of honey, even before they happen, but there's one appetizing occasion that serves to cast a light on an important cause: The health of our planet's bees and their habitats.

Of course, there's another motive behind Häagen-Dazs' Free Cone Day, which is coming back around on Tuesday, May 14, and that is this: To give fans a free mini cone scoop of something sweet to celebrate the run-up to summertime and warmer days.

That combo — making a big buzz over bee awareness and treating customers to something creamy and cold — will be the theme at participating Häagen-Dazs shops on May 14 from 4 to 8 p.m., yep yep.

That's right, we double-"yep"-d ya, all to call attention to the fact that this isn't a daylong giveaway but one that exists within a generous but shorter window, from mid-afternoon to mid-evening.

So if you want free morning ice cream, you'll need to look elsewhere. But if want a complimentary mini cone scoop of Häagen-Dazs Rocky Road or strawberry, all to nosh while watching the sun go down, you'll be right in the right zone.
