Free Cone Day banner - Ben & Jerry's official websiteMetro Birmingham residents were looking forward to their annual trek into one of the two area Ben & Jerry’s ice cream locations for their free cones. Unfortunately, it will be regular price for ice cream cones while other stores across the country take part in the annual Free Cone Day activities…

…that is, unless you feel like making the drive up to Huntsville for it. If there’s a bright side, it’s that it will be a little cooler tomorrow anyway. Of course, as suggested on Twitter, maybe another local provider of ice cream will be willing to step in.

I have not been at all impressed by the Ben & Jerry's location in Patton Creek. It's not cleaned or well maintained, they seem to always be out of the flavors I want, and the service is lackadaisical at best. I've given it two tries and am not giving them a chance for a "third strike."

What!? I love free cone day! I am instituting a boycott of Ben and Jerry's Birmingham locations.
