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

Free Cone Day is coming!
Ben & Jerry's Is Giving Out Free Ice Cream Across Canada Next Month

For most, it might still seem a bit too cold to really enjoy iced foods and beverages the way we do during the hot summer months. Luckily, with weather drastically warming over the next few weeks, we can finally have our first icy treat of the season and not feel weird about it. 

To make our introduction to spring even better this year, our first ice-cold snack of the season can actually be totally free. Ben & Jerry's "Free Cone Day" happens to fall on a day next month, right when the warm weather is expected to really kick off!

TL;DR This April 9, 2019, Ben & Jerry's locations across Canada will be celebrating "Free Cone Day" with an ice cream scoop of your choice. Just because ice cream is always better enjoyed in warmer temperatures, below is the expected temperatures in major cities across the country next month.

The special one-day event, which has been celebrated for years, is taking place at participating Ben & Jerry's location across all of Canada. The date to mark on your calendars is April 9, 2019, which really isn't too far away at all.

On this day you can grab yourself one scoop of your choice in either a cone or a cup! So simple, so perfect. It's no wonder we've been celebrating this day for years.

In case you were wondering how warm the country will actually be by April 9 (we can all agree the hotter it is outside, the better ice cream tastes), according to The Weather Network, here are just some of the historical averages for the day of free ice cream:

  • Montreal: 8°C
  • Toronto: 9°C
  • Halifax: 7°C
  • Winnipeg: 8°C
  • Saskatoon: 8°C
  • Edmonton: 7°C
  • Calgary: 8°C
  • Vancouver: 12°C

Now that you know the Canadian outdoors will be moderately warmer than it is now, there's no doubt that free ice cream from Ben & Jerry's will be the perfect snack to kick off the season!
