Today is Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's

Today is Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's

OK, so if you didn't already know, my friend Yum reminded me that today is Free Cone Day at participating Ben & Jerry's ice cream shops!!!. Get there between 12 and 8pm today and get yourself a free ice cream cone.

I know it seems weird for me to be telling you this, considering Ben & Jerry's isn't exactly healthy for you, but you know how I feel about moderation -their scrumptious ice cream flavors are definitely worth experiencing.

Choose from their many delicious ice cream flavors (watch out - these will run about 8-23 grams of fat per 1/2 cup serving), or go for their light and fruity Sorbets. Check out Berried Treasure, Jamaican Me Crazy, or my fave, Strawberry Kiwi. These Sorbets have 130 calories or less per 1/2 cup serving, 0mg no cholesterol, and no fat whatsoever. Now that's a treat you can indulge in.

Since Earth Day is coming up on April 22nd, I thought you'd like to know that Ben & Jerry's is an extremely environmentally conscious company, supporting the fight against global warming. Want to know how? Then

They teamed up with the Dave Matthews Band and (a coalition of 20 of the nation's largest and most respected environmental advocacy groups) and concocted the flavor: Dave Matthews Band Magic Brownies. A portion of every sale of this flavor goes to help global warming initiatives.

On the Ben & Jerry's website, they also give you tips on how to reduce your carbon pollution and have a guide to help you learn more about global warming, our impacts, and how we can help fight against it.

Ben & Jerry's also uses packaging made with unbleached paper called Eco-Pints (that's why they're brown instead of white). These pints are filled with ice cream made from milk supplied by sustainable dairy farms.

They also have flavors made with Certified Fair Trade ingredients: Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz, Coffee Heath Bar Crunch, Coffee, and newly introduced Fair Trade Certified Vanilla and Chocolate.

Now when you enjoy your tasty free cone, you can also feel good about supporting this company. Ben & Jerry's is good for your taste buds and good for the Earth!

Nooo I didn't get a cone, but plenty of girls at school did. My principal was like "I have something important to discuss with you girls..." this morning at assembly. And I thought she was going to say something about the shootings, but she continued by saying that yesterday, she saw plenty of our girls at the super long lines at B&J's. "The girls were waiting in the very long lines...proves that the girls are determined to get what they want...even though line was long and they wanted their free cones...faces did not show hunger...not greedy..." My friend couldn't stand the line and decided to just buy a cone since she was late for her tuition class. I swear, this might be treason, but can our principal be more serious and address issues which are actually important?
