In scoop shops across the globe Ben & Jerry's will be giving away a free scoop of ice cream today only (Tuesday). You can start lining up at your local/favorite shop beginning at high noon, and the shops stay open until at least 8 p.m. Generally if you're in line at 8 p.m. then the shop will still serve you!
The "Grand Poobah of PR" for B&J stopped in the FOX44/ABC22 studio for the morning news Tuesday, yielding three cups of samples; Salted Caramel, Hazed & Confused, and Cotton Candy. Sean Greenwood (Poobah) challenges Americans to eat one million scoops on Free Cone Day. The average worldwide consumption for this day alone is one million, so to do it in the USA will take some mouths. Greenwood adds "The Free Cone Day Expert" will get a scoop, walk to the back of the line again, eat the scoop while the line shortens, and get another. He didn't recommend how many times to do that.
