Free Ben and Jerry's ice cream is on the menu today, thanks to what's easily in the running for the best food "holiday" of the year: Ben and Jerry's Free Cone Day.

Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day takes place every year on a Tuesday in April. And the 2019 edition of Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day is today, Tuesday, April 9.

Getting your free ice cream today is as simple as finding a nearby participating Ben and Jerry's location and asking for a free cone anytime between 12 p.m. and 8 p.m. locally. You can pick any Ben and Jerry's flavor you like, including favorites like Cherry Garcia and Chubby Hubby.

Perhaps the most amazing thing about Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day is that you are welcome to get seconds — or thirds or even fourths. Unlike most other freebie days, which have one-serving-per-customer limits, Ben & Jerry's will keep giving you free ice cream cones today as many times as you're willing to wait in line, while the giveaway is still valid.

Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day 2019 is the 40th anniversary for the beloved ice cream brand's holiday devoted to free ice cream. Ben & Jerry's gave out over one million scoops on Cone Day 2016, and its shops should give away at least that much free ice cream today.
