Free First Day of Spring Ice Cream
On March 20th each year, be sure to check social media pages for your local ice cream shops. Some shops may offer ice cream for free on the same day you can get your free Italian ice from Rita’s.
Dairy Queen in Gilbertsville and the Pottstown Dairy Queen both offer a free vanilla soft serve cone on the first day of spring. Free cones are available in vanilla only and must be ordered at the counter, not in the drive-through. This promotion is available at participating Dairy Queen locations nationwide, so be sure to reach out to your local store to discover if the offer is available there as well. Through this Free Cone Day promotion, Dairy Queen celebrates Children’s Hospitals Week and the first day of spring. Keep your eyes peeled for opportunities to donate to local hospitals or Children’s Miracle Network during this promotion.

For local readers: The closest Ben & Jerry’s seem to be in the Rittenhouse Square and University City sections of Philadelphia. For us it’s too far of a hike for a free scoop, but if you find yourself in the city, enjoy!
Häagen-Dazs Free Cone Day – May 12, 2020
Not to be left out, Häagen-Dazs celebrated its 2019 Free Cone Day on May 14, 2019 with a free scoop. Amazing news – mark your calendar for the Häagen-Dazs Free Cone Day 2020, which will take place on Tuesday, May 12, 2020 in participation with “Häagen-Dazs loves Honey Bees.”
The Free Cone Day promotion aims to raise awareness for the importance of honeybees and the dangers their populations face. Free Cone Day helps to celebrate some of the favorite flavors that honeybees helped to create, including Rocky Road, Mango, and Strawberry. If you can help, please donate to help the honeybees. You can get all the sweet details about Free Cone Day on the Häagen-Dazs website.
