Springtime means free ice cream at Ben & Jerry's

Posted: Updated:
With spring in the air, several ice cream vendors are giving you the perfect reason to celebrate the warmer weather.

Ben & Jerry's annual Free Cone Day is April 14. The Vermont ice cream company has been celebrating their Free Cone Day since 1979 as a way to say “Thank you” to their customers.

Earlier in March, Dairy Queen kicked things off by offering free vanilla soft-serve cones in honor of the chain's 75 anniversary. It was just for Monday, March 16, and DQ limited the free cone to one per customer at participating locations.

Later on March 20, Rita's Italian Ice joined the freebie parade, offering customers a free Italian ice for the first day of Spring from noon to 9:00pm. It's a 20-year-old tradition, according to their website. In 2014, Rita's gave away more than 1.2 million cups of Italian ice in just a nine-hour period.
