Having a cone in your hand ought to make you feel good. However, Dairy Queen is giving you an extra way to feel good while you indulge in free frozen treats. It is taking donations to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as a part of the spring-y celebration. So, if you feel like you should pay for that cone, you can give a little to charity instead. For last year's Free Cone Day, ice cream-lovers raised nearly $300,000 in just one day.
If don't live near a Dairy Queen, maybe you can get to a Rita's Italian Ice. It's welcoming the first day of spring with a freebie as well. Drop in anytime between noon and 9pm, and you'll score a free Italian ice, which may be cold comfort if you're waiting for another nor'easter, but, you know, spring!
