Following on the heels of recent ice cream giveaways from Carvel, Ben & Jerry's, and Dairy Queen, Haagen-Dazs is hosting a Free Cone Day on Tuesday, May 12. That may be a slight misnomer because freebies are not available for the whole day. Instead, the giveaways are limited to 4 p.m. through 8 p.m. at participating Haagen-Dazs locations.
