Tuesday, April 4, 12 p.m.—RUTLAND—The annual event that has customers lined up for hours is here: Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day is Tuesday, April 4, from 12-8 p.m. at Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops around the world. The closest one to our readers is on Woodstock Avenue in Rutland, next to Applebee’s.
Is it worth the wait? We say “Yes.” It’s free Ben & Jerry’s, folks. Get in the line and give yourself some time to think about which flavor you’ll choose. According to the website benjerry.com, Cherry Garcia, Phish Food, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough seem to be favorites. Looking for a fun way to interact with the Ben & Jerry’s team to figure out which flavor to order? Head to that website and take the “What Flavor Should You Choose on Free Cone Day” quiz, and answer a few multiple choice questions to find the answer that the experts deem right for you.
Visitors to the Waterbury factory will also be able to experience free factory tours. Donations will benefit Capstone Community Action.
