We鈥檒l take ice cream pretty much any way we can get it. Cereal-inspired ice cream, a lavender ice cream bagel sandwich, and even Lucky Charm ice cream鈥 they鈥檙e all just so yummy! But our very fave ice cream is FREE ice cream, which is why we鈥檙e thrilled that Dairy Queen will be handing out cones for no cost. Here鈥檚 how you can score one.

To celebrate the very first day of spring on March 20, some (non-mall) locations of Dairy Queen will be giving away their classic swirled ice cream cones to anyone who鈥檚 lucky enough to be in the area and hankering for a cool treat.

鈥淭he DQ庐 soft-serve cone fans have come to love is one of the most recognized treats in the world and is fondly referred to as the 鈥榗one with the curl on top,鈥欌 Barry Westrum, executive vice president of marketing for DQ, said in a press release according to Business Wire. 鈥淲e can鈥檛 think of a better way to show our appreciation to fans.鈥

And while showing appreciation for their customers is certainly well and good, DQ is also using the event to raise money for the Children鈥檚 Miracle Network by collecting donations. So while you鈥檙e enjoying a sweet free treat, it would be nice to give a few dollars to children in need.

Would you gladly donate to the Children鈥檚 Miracle Network in exchange for free ice cream? Let us know @BritandCo!
