Ben & Jerry's Is Giving Out Free Ice Cream Across Canada Today

Bringing a whole new meaning to a snow cone, today is Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day in Canada. I guess the weather in Montreal didn't get the memo. Way to go, weather. 

Hilarious as this is, Montreal can still enjoy ice cream in a snowstorm, right? We're tough and we'll be dammed if we let some snow get in the way of free ice cream! I've seen people line up in minus 40-degree weather to get into a club so you better believe people are getting their ice cream on today. 

So, while Toronto gets to enjoy their free cone in gorgeous spring weather, we get to enjoy our ice cream with a side of well, ice. We're still better, though, don't worry.

TL;DR Yes, you read that right. Today of all days is Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's. Don't lie, you want free ice cream and will brave this terrible weather for it. Can you call yourself a Montrealer if you don't stand outside in a snowstorm for free ice cream? The answer is no.

Ben & Jerry's is known for making some of the most delectable ice creams in the world. The company is also famous for its efforts to be socially and environmentally responsible.

While we all stand in the cold waiting for our ice cream, let's take a quick look at how some people around the world are celebrating Free Cone Day. 

This influencer in Rome is showing off her free cone in head-to-toe Adidas workout gear. Notice how nice the weather is? Did you also notice the irony of eating ice cream in full workout gear? I know I did. 

Meanwhile, in Montreal...

Still going to get free ice cream, I don't care what you say. 

This dog in Paris is also getting in on the free ice cream action, but why does she look so ashamed about it? Wait, can dogs even eat ice cream? Who's the dude in the corner? So many questions. 

In Boston, people are eagerly waiting in line for their free cones. Notice that everyone in line is wearing jackets and toques, eh. If Boston can brave the weather, we certainly can. Wait, it's 4 degrees in Boston? Toughen up, bud. 

Okay, that settles it, I'm going to Ben & Jerry's. I just looked out the window and it's freezing rain so that means the weather is looking up! 

Oh wait, I'm wearing sneakers dammit! Why do I have to take my winter boots out? It's bloody April 9th! Argh. 

See you all there!
