    Free Cone Day is April 10! What flavor will you choose?

    I scream, you scream, we all scream for free Ben & Jerry's ice cream

    The Vermont-based ice cream chain is celebrating its annual Free Cone Day event on Tuesday.

    Customers can get a free scoop of their favorite flavor from noon to 8 p.m. at participating locations. And if after enjoying a Cherry Garcia cone your taste buds yearn for some Phish Food, just get back in line for another free cone. "Over and over again. We're not counting. Really, go for it," the company said on its website.

    But, plan on waiting, shortly afternoon, the line outside the Ben & Jerry's on Sansom Street near Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square was already up the block.

    The first Free Cone Day was in 1979 — one year after co-founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield launched the company in a renovated gas station in Burlington. The tradition has since expanded globally, and Ben & Jerry's says it will hand out more than 1 million free scoops this Tuesday.
