Happy birthday to Ben & Jerry's! Each year on April 8, Ben & Jerry's ice cream shops celebrate Free Cone Day as part of their anniversary celebration. This year is no different so head down to your local Ben & Jerry's ice cream shop to enjoy your favorite flavor.

The tradition of giving away free ice cream cones on their anniversary started in 1979 with the first anniversary of the first shop. This year marks 35 years of free ice cream cones for fans of the gourmet ice cream. Ben and Jerry themselves started the tradition to mark their very first year of success. They gave away ice cream cones to say thank you to their customers.

Free Cone Day is so popular that the shops begin stockpiling ice cream in anticipation of the event. Be ready to stand in line because Ben & Jerry's free ice cream cones are very popular. With flavors like Chunky Monkey, Cherry Garcia and Phish Food it is certainly worth the wait.
