On April 10th, Ben & Jerry’s fans can celebrate the Ben & Jerry-est day of the year! Everyone's invited to Ben & Jerry’s at 24 St Marks Place,12pm to 8pm to join their long-time tradition of thanking fans for their commitment and ongoing support.
The company was founded on the idea that business has not just the opportunity, but also the responsibility to give back to the community. Free Cone Day is a long standing tradition when it comes to benevolent acts, and as Jerry said, "If it’s not fun, why do it?" The annual anniversary merges the two founding principles and demonstrates that giving back to the community is just as sweet as free ice cream.
"We love getting involved with and giving back to our communities. It’s amazing what we can do together over shared values and several scoops of ice cream," said Sibel Berberoglu Owner And Chief Flavor Guru, Ben & Jerry’s of St Marks Place. Ben & Jerry’s advocates for social causes like marriage equality and climate justice, and makes their ice cream in the best way possible, which includes sourcing Fairtrade and non-GMO ingredients.
Ben & Jerry’s continues to deliver on the chunky and funky flavors fans have grown to love and expect. In addition to dishing out the chunks and swirls, Ben & Jerry’s of St Marks Place will partner with NYC PRIDE to spread the word about a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law within the community.
So the biggest question is, which flavor will you have on Free Cone Day?
