Ben & Jerry's announced this week that they will be postponing their annual Free Cone Day due to the coronavirus outbreak. Ben & Jerry's made the announcement on their website, stating that due to the event being a large gathering it would be best to postpone it to another date this year."Free Cone Day is our favorite day of the year. It's a special time to thank fans for their love with free Fairtrade ice cream all around the world. This year, some of our scoop shops in communities around the world will be unable to take part in Free Cone Day due to precautions put in place by local Governments around large public gatherings, considering the increasing presence of COVID-19."
Just for reference, Free Cone Day is usually the second Tuesday in April and the tradition has been going on for more than 40 years.On a brighter note, the scoop shops will remain open until further notice! Source: Ben & Jerry's
