And now for a KayB’s Public Service Announcement..
Everyone loves something for free. My favourite holiday of the calendar year is 7-Eleven day, because you get to stuff yourself stupid with slurpee upon slurpee upon slurpee..
And it seems I have discovered what I’m sure will become my second favourite holiday. Free Cone Day!
After many years, patiently waiting, Ben and Jerry’s hit our shores last year with their flagship store in Manly. Loyal Ben and Jerry’s converts have been flocking to the Scoop Store ever since to get their ice cream fix, and as a thank you our Manly shop will now be taking part in the international phenomenon that is FREE CONE DAY!
It’s a pretty simple concept. As the slogan states, you get free ice cream! Free Cone Day takes place around the end of March/beginning of April all over the world. This year’s Australian Free Cone Day is April 20th from 1pm -8pm.
If you haven’t experienced the delight that is Ben and Jerry’s, I suggest you use Free Cone Day as a fabulous excuse to get your first fix. After many hours debating with work colleagues about the most outstanding flavour, we have finally come up with two recommendations for this year’s Free Cone Day...
Chunky Monkey and Phish Food, both standout classics (and and and.. Peanut Cookie-burra Dough! Who doesn’t love food with a comical name!).
See details below, and enjoy!
