Get excited: Häagen-Dazs’ Free Cone Day is almost here


It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and no we’re not referring to the holidays. 

The season for sweet scoops at the best ice cream shops in NYC is upon us, and it's certainly one of the tastiest ways to celebrate things to do in spring. The good news is that Häagen-Dazs is once again upping the sweet factor with its highly-anticipated Free Cone Day

On Tuesday, May 14 from 4–8pm, hungry customers can visit a local shop (there are stores in NYC, Brooklyn and New Jersey) to score a freebie. Who wouldn't want to take advantage of a complimentary mini cone of their favorite flavor? No need to tell us twice, Häagen-Dazs! 

You'll also be pleased to know that this initiative is all for a good cause. During the four-hour celebration, your local shop will accept donations for its busiest employees: the honey bees who are responsible for helping Häagen-Dazs create its most beloved flavors. To date, The Häagen-Dazs Loves Honey Bees Initiative has raised over $1 million dollars to pollinator education and research, so this event is obviously the bees knees.

For those who love snapping photos at the most Instagrammable dessert spots in NYC, make sure to capture the delightful festivities with the hashtag #HDFreeConeDay. We'll see you there!
