Ice-cream-loving locals lined up outside Ben & Jerry’s Burbank Scoop
Shop on Palm Avenue for Free Cone Day on Tuesday as Burbank
firefighters raised money while handing out treats. Some patrons even
went for seconds and thirds as the store offered unlimited samples.
The annual give-away is celebrating the company’s 25th anniversary.
Last year, scoop shops across the world gave away more than 1 million
free samples. This year, seven new flavors have been introduced,
including Brownie Batter, Uncanny Cashew and Chocolate Chocolate
Cookie. Ben & Jerry’s was founded by Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield
in 1978. The company has hosted Free Cone Day since its first year.
