Ice Cream! Ice cream! Come and get it because not only is it the best premium ice cream around, but it’s absolutely free! Today Haagen Dazs celebrates its 50th birthday by giving out free scoops of its classic and iconic flavors, vanilla, chocolate and coffee, between 4 and 8 pm at all of its locations. Don’t miss out on this opportunity because you never see this stuff being given out like this.

Then walk in, point to your gaping mouth and say “I’ll have a scoop of the coffee ice cream, please”. Other flavors, such as caramel cone or rum raisin, or even my all-time favorite that they don’t make anymore, Peanut Butter Vanilla, are not free during this celebration, so you’ll have to keep it simple. Enjoy!
