Tax Day Gets Licked

You can’t escape death or taxes, but at least one of those distinctly depressing prospects will taste a little sweeter today. To delight the beaten masses who must fork over their finances to the IRS by today’s deadline, the good scoopers over at Ben & Jerry’s are hosting the 29th annual Global Free Cone Day!

Last year, the trippy hippy sweet treat sellers gave away more than a million free cones. This year, there are some amazing new flavors, including “crème brûlée and cinnamon buns, which contains caramel ice cream, cinnamon bun dough, and a caramel streusel swirl. We are so down with the swirl! If you happen to miss out on today’s free bonanza, stop by your local Publix for a pint of our favorite new flava, Stephen Colbert’s “Americone Dream.” It’s a rich mix of vanilla ice cream, fudge-covered waffle cone, and caramel goodness. And it’s like sweet truthiness melting on your tongue.
