Hit Haagen Dazs for a Free Bee-Built Cone


Temps are supposed to coast into the high 80s today and Mother Nature couldn't have picked a better day to turn the heat up - Haagen Dazs is giving away free scoops of any bee-built flavor. No, not a frozen chocolate concoction thrown together by lil' hard-hatted bees sporting distressed leather tool belts; flavors such as Rocky Road, Strawberry, Mint Chip, Zesty Lemon Sorbet, and of course, Vanilla Honey Bee.

This isn't a ploy to make you forget that the Dazs is shrinking their carton sizes as of January 2009, the lux ice cream brand is paying homage to an insect that plays a major role in the tastiness of their product. Honey bees are responsible for pollinating over a hundred crops of nuts, fruits and berries and the recently the lil' buggers have experienced a drop in their numbers - directly affecting Haagen Dazs' flavor line-up. So today, show up at any local location from 4 to 8 p.m. and learn how you can help while slurping down a scoop of your favorite flavor.
