Ben and Jerry’s Free Ice Cream Day, Sort Of

The free ice cream at Ben and Jerry’s today until 8pm, celebrating 28 years of having your ideology and eating it too, is only as free as they want to be. Doug writes:

    “I followed your link for free Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. Of the 16 New Jersey Scoop Shops listed on their web site, 8 are not participating. 14 of the 33 New York Scoop Shops are not participating. I’m guessing only the company-owned stores are participating. Maybe the franchisees can’t afford to give away ice cream because of high credit card fees…”

So make sure to check the store locator to find out whether your local B&J scooper is in on the action or not.

Ben & Jerry’s: Our cows are so liberal it’s fascist!
