It’s a rainy day in New York City, but there is a smile on my face. Why?
Because today is April 12, 2011- Free Cone Day at Ben&Jerry’s!
Today is a special one for me because it takes me back to my undergrad days in DC, waiting on a line of hundreds people in Georgetown, all for my free cone.
This year, Ben&Jerry’s is unveiling four new delicious flavors in the Scoop Shops including:
Late Night Snack: Inspired by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon – Fair Trade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with a Salty Caramel Swirl & Fudge Covered Potato Chip Clusters (the fudge uses Fair Trade cocoa, too!)
Bonnaroo Buzz: Light Coffee & Malt ice creams with Whiskey Caramel swirls & English Toffee pieces. This flavor, inspired by the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, is back by popular demand in Scoop Shops and now available in pints!
Stephen Colbert’s AmeriCone Dream: Vanilla ice cream with fudge covered waffle cone pieces & a caramel swirl. A long time pint favorite, so popular we made it a scoop shop flavor for the first time this year!
Clusterfluff: Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Caramel Cluster Pieces, Peanut Butter & Marshmallow Swirls
I haven’t watched Colbert late night in a long time, but that flavor sounds good enough to inhale.
Really, the lines may be ridiculous all for one scoop and a basic sugar cone, but waiting with a good girlfriend and good conversation, the time will fly. Plus, on a dreary Tuesday, who couldn’t use a little indulging? Go head and treat yourself to an after-work treat!
