Seems to us that Ben & Jerry's famous Free Cone Day is usually just this side of summer. Maybe late-April-ish.
So that the ice-creamery jumped to late March for 2010 was downright bold. Was taking chances with cooler temps. But, in the end, at least in Los Angeles, no worries.
Because this is shorts weather, right? Well, at least for a few hours in the middle of the day.
Free Cone Day for 2010 falls on Tuesday, March 23. The hours are noon to 8 p.m. And the flavors? You know the flavors. Chunky Monkey and Cherry Garcia and some new ones, including Maple Blondie and Peanut Brittle.
Dear Ben & Jerry's: Hi. We're not complaining on Free Cone Day. Not at all. But might you bring back Chubby Hubby? Just, truly, pretzels encased in ice cream is a symphony in salty texture.
Find your flavor and your participating scoop shop, and don those sunny-weather short pants.
