A sweet Ben and Jerrys tradition was back Tuesday

A sweet Ben & Jerry’s tradition was back Tuesday, along with long lines for a free cone. In a line out the door and down Church Street, hundreds of people waited Tuesday morning for a Ben & Jerry’s special treat. Since 1979, the company has offered an annual Free Cone Day for its customers. The sweet celebration was created to show appreciation to the brand’s fans. The store gives out about 7,000 scoops at their Burlington scoop shop alone. Nationwide, the numbers are upwards of one million.
