Free Food Friday: Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Cones

Although curling up with a cold pint and the remote can’t be an everyday occurrence if you want to maintain your waistline, Ben & Jerry’s mouth-watering flavors makes the occasional indulgence well worth it!

If you’re a big fan of the chain, we come bearing the best news you’ll likely hear all week: Tuesday, April 14 is Ben & Jerry’s 36th annual Free Cone Day, which means you can chow down on your favorite flavor without whipping out your wallet. You don’t need a coupon to cash in either. Just show up and tell the lovely people behind the counter what you want. While the name implies that you’ve got to eat your treat out of a cone, our trusty sources say you can also get it served in a cup.

Although Ben & Jerry’s doesn't currently limit the number of times customers can get in line for a freebie, we highly suggest cutting yourself off after round one. Some of the more indulgent varieties have up to 320 calories in a half-cup. Yikes! If you’ve been trying to lose weight, keep excess calories at bay by opting for one of the FroYos. Doing so can keep up to 100 calories and 11 grams of health-harming fat off your frame. It will save you time trying to burn it off on the treadmill, too.

No matter what you decide to order, think of your Ben & Jerry’s indulgence as what it is—a nice treat you enjoy before going back to the healthy eating ways you know.
