Want Free McDonald's Ice Cream? Here's How To Get It! (Video)

As everybody knows, the best kind of ice cream is free ice cream, and the best kind of holiday is the kind when you can get such a delicious frozen dessert for free.

That's all going to happen on July 16, which incidentally is National Ice Cream Day, when McDonald's is giving out free vanilla soft serve cones to all. Oh happy day!

TIME notes that National Ice Cream Day is a totally made up holiday, but aren't all holidays made up?

All you have to do to cash in on this offer is download McD's mobile app and find the free ice cream coupon under "my deals," according to Business Insider. It should appear on July 16, and you can show to cashiers at the register or drive-thru to get your complimentary cone between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

No word yet on whether or not this means that their ice cream machine will actually be working when you come in for your free scoop, though.

​You can probably delete the app when you're done, but it's honestly pretty great to have if you go to McDonald's every now and again -- you can almost always find a coupon that makes it worth your while. But hey, you do you.

Still skeptical about this free offer? Don't be. The famous fast food company has made some changes to its soft serve recipe, and they're promoting that.

Starting in late 2016, McDonald's took artificial flavors, colors and preservatives out of their soft serve. Does this mean that my McFlurry is now healthy?

On July 10, the golden arches social media launched a campaign to hype you up by dishing out personalized compliments to Twitter users who tweet McDonald's with the hashtag #SoftServed.

There will probably be a bunch more deals popping up for National Ice Cream Day, so keep your eyes peeled!
