Free Ben and Jerry's Night!

Yesterday Ben and Jerry's offered free ice cream from 2-9 pm. We of course had to go, because the only thing better than ice cream is free ice cream. Also, Ben and Jerry's is literally $15 per pint here, so this was a legitimately good deal.

The night started with dinner at a Thai place on Chapel Street:
We went pretty early and were the only ones in the restaurant for most of the meal, which was nice. I am a complete grandma and get annoyed when restaurants are too loud. 

We then walked down the street to join the long-like hundreds of people long- line at Ben and Jerry's. We were skeptical as to whether or not the wait was worth it, but the people behind us had already been through the line 3 times (genius) and assured us it moved quickly. 
There was a legitimate security guard controlling the crowd. He took his job a bit too seriously...

While in line we got free t-shirts and posed with ice cream props. Living the dream.
It was madness. People will do crazy things for free ice cream. 
I got a cookie variety which was really good. We considered getting back in line for seconds but decided against it as the promotion was almost over.

So in summary: it was basically the best day ever. 


  1. This is cool. I saw something yesterday which makes me think that Ben and Jerry's free ice cream cone day is world-wide. So, like, we should look for it here in Minnesota. Now that it is starting to warm up and all...

    1. I think I saw something about it being in the U.S. too...so don't miss your chance!

  2. As expensive as Ben and Jerry's is in Australian, I would have done crazy things for free ice cream also. www.eatallovertheworld.com

  3. Free cone day at Ben and Jerry's is literally one of my favorite days of the year - cookies and cream was a solid choice :)

    1. Yes! I didn't even know it existed until this year!
