I did not realize until this very day that it's a huge day for me and my girls - free cone day at Ben & Jerry's!
From noon to 8 p.m., today, April 12, Ben & Jerry's will be giving away free ice cream cones. There's no catch - you can walk in, ask for ice cream and walk out without spending any money.
The shops, however, are encouraging donations for various charities. And, when you donate - even just some spare change or $1 or so - you get a key fob or coupons that offer discounts for the next year.
You can find lines, but I've never stood in line for more than 10 minutes for my free cone.
