Häagen-Dazs Is Throwing a Free Cone Day and We’re Already Lining Up

The day we've all been waiting for is almost here!

If you missed Dairy Queen’s annual Free Cone Day, good news: You don’t have to wait an entire year to get your hands on some free ice cream. Our friends at Häagen-Dazs are throwing their very own Free Cone Day, and you’re invited!

Here’s When to Grab Yours

We’re giving you about a week’s notice to get into your local Häagen-Dazs on Tuesday, May 14. Drop by from 4-8 p.m. and snag your favorite frozen treat in a sugar cone, cake cone or cup. Unlike Dairy Queen’s Free Cone Day promotion, Häagen-Dazs offers way more than just vanilla. You can indulge in a single scoop of whatever flavor you like, including the famous Rocky Road.

We tried the boozy Häagen-Dazs flavors, and here’s what we thought.

Get a Free Cone and Get Rewarded

Even better news: You can now enjoy your favorite ice cream and get rewarded at the same time. Häagen-Dazs just launched its Sweet Rewards program. Download the app and earn points for every dollar you spend. Like the Starbucks rewards program, you can build points and unlock offers to be redeemed all year long. You can even extend your Free Cone Day, since customers who sign up for the app automatically get a free cone voucher by email. As if this deal wasn’t sweet enough already!

Have you tried all of these new Häagen-Dazs treats?

It’s for a Good Cause

The best part: There’s no guilt in this pleasure. Häagen-Dazs is dedicating their Free Cone Day to protect the real makers of Häagen-Dazs ice cream—honeybees! Free Cone Day is a celebration of both customers and the bees that help provide the sweet treat we love so much.

According to Adam Hanson, the Häagen-Dazs President and General Manager, “We look forward to Free Cone Day every year as an opportunity to thank our loyal fans while simultaneously recognizing the pollinators that make our ice cream possible.” Aw, isn’t that sweet?
