Get the kids off the bus and into the car after school Tuesday for a treat that's literally "cool" -- it's Free Cone Day at Haagen-Dazs stores nationwide. Cones are available from 4-8 p.m. at participating Long Island stores.
Each person can choose one scoop of a favorite flavor of ice cream or gelato, and this year, new gelato flavors include stracciatella, black cherry amaretto, cappuccino and sea salt caramel.
Participating Long Island venues include:
- 85 Middle Neck Rd., Great Neck
- 599 Sunrise Mall, Massapequa
- 630 Old Country Rd., Garden City
- 152 The Arches Circle, Deer Park
- 1701 Sunrise Hwy., Bay Shore
- 313 Smith Haven Mall, Lake Grove
- 103 Main St., Westhampton Beach
Last year, Häagen-Dazs shops scooped more than 205,000 cones on Free Cone Day, and the company says it is looking forward to breaking that record this year. Get on over to help!
