Out of my way! I want to be one of the first people in line for some FREE "Half-Baked!" Free Cone Day is back at Ben & Jerry's!

The ice cream mecca on 10th Street will be scooping free cones from Noon-8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9! Have Alexa, Siri or Google set a reminder to that you don't miss out on your favorite flavor!

No seriously, when it comes to finding your favorite flavor they let us in on a dirty little secret about the popular ice cream maker! Did you know your favorite flavors may be available at one grocery store, but not the another? It's true sometimes an Albertsons will get flavors that say a Fred Meyer won't. BUT...EVERY Ben & Jerry's flavor is available at their 10th Street Store.

As excited as we are about the FREE ice cream, Free Cone Day is about so much more than being overcome with so much excitement that you give yourself brain freeze scarfing down your cone. Andrew and his team use the day to raise awareness and funds for two very special local charities. From 12-4 p.m. any donations collected will go to help our friends at the Women's and Children's Alliance.

If you stop by later in the day after work or dinner, donations from 4-8 p.m. benefit the Idaho chapter of Canine Companions for Independence. CCI trains service dogs for adults with physical disabilities, hearing dogs for the deaf or those who are hard of hearing, facitilty dogs that work with special needs clients in visitation, education, criminal justice or health care settings and skilled companions that help kids and adults with physical, cognitive or developmental disabilities gain more independence!

Throughout the day, celebrity scoopers from all over the Treasure Valley will be making your cones to spread the word and lend a hand to these amazing causes. In fact, if you're able to sneak out of the office between 2-3 p.m., I may be the one making your cone! It's an honor to scoop in support our friends from the WCA!

BTW...Ben & Jerry's does ice cream cakes too! Who knew?! If it's someone specials birthday, you should totes pick one up for them!
