It’s the day all you sweet-toothed fans have been waiting for: Haagen-Dazs is running its annual Free Cone Day this Tuesday, May 10.
From 4 to 8 p.m., customers can go to any participating shop (find one near you here) and receive a complimentary kiddie scoop of either ice cream, sorbet or gelato in a cup, sugar cone or cake cone.
“We look forward to Free Cone Day all year,” Adam Hanson, the Haagen-Dazs Shoppe Company President and General Manager, told Eat Drink Deals. "Not only is it a fun day where we are able to give back to our guests who support us year-round, it also means summer is right around the corner.
“Last year, we served 315,000 scoops on Free Cone Day, and this year, we are excited to help even more people leave the dreary days of winter behind and take a moment to enjoy Haagen-Dazs’ simple and pure ingredients.”
As if that weren’t enough, DCist reports that Haagen-Dazs will also be hosting a virtual ice cream social at 1 p.m. EDT on Twitter. Fans are invited to share their “favorite ice cream moments” using the hashtag #HDfreeconeday for a chance to win an assortment of different gift cards (to either American Express or Haagen-Dazs shops) or a year of free ice cream.
