What’s better than free ice cream? Knowing that the flavor you choose can help make the world a better place. To help you prepare for Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day, we put together this guide to choosing flavors that not only taste good, but they do some good, too. Truth be told, every Ben & Jerry’s flavor pays it forward—helping farmers, communities and the environment in ways both big and small. So join us on April 12, 2016, and treat yourself while supporting the causes that matter to you most.
Want to help people turn their lives around?
Choose Chocolate Fudge Brownie or Half Baked. The fudgy brownie chunks in both flavors are made by Greyston Bakery, a social enterprise in Yonkers, New York, that provides jobs and training to residents who have faced barriers to employment.
Believe in supporting businesses that do good for people and the planet?
Check out Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, where every chunk of gooey cookie dough comes from Rhino Foods, a fellow B Corp that shares Ben & Jerry's values and passion for linked prosperity.
Want to support small-scale farmers around the world?
All of Ben & Jerry’s sugar, cocoa, vanilla, coffee, and bananas are Fairtrade Certified, so any flavor you choose supports the cause. Grab a scoop of Chunky Monkey or New York Super Fudge Chunk to maximize your fair trade support.
Are you an animal lover?
So are we! Choose any flavor and smile knowing Ben & Jerry’s only uses eggs from certified humane, cage-free farms, and milk from Caring Dairy cooperative farmers who are dedicated to raising happy cows.
Do you care about clean waterways?
Then Phish Food is for you. In honor of Vermont’s favorite jam band, this flavor’s precedes support the band’s Waterwheel Foundation and its efforts to clean up Vermont’s favorite body of water, Lake Champlain.
Dream of equal rights for all?
We believe any flavor combination can be awesome, as long as there’s love in the mix. The same goes for people and our belief is that loving couples of all kinds should be free to marry. Caramel and peanut butter…maybe cheesecake and cookies? This Free Cone Day—choose an unconventional combination.
Is political corruption driving you nuts?
Then try one of our nuttier flavors featuring almonds, pecans, peanuts, walnuts, or hazelnuts. Your support helps our fight to "Get the Dough Out of Politics" and end money-driven corruption.
Can’t stand GMOs?
Neither can we! That’s why all Ben & Jerry’s flavors contain 100% non-GMO ingredients. For maximum effect on Free Cone Day 2016, try one of our fruit-infused flavors, like Strawberry Cheesecake or Cherry Garcia.
