Tweet Ben and Jerry's for Free Ice Cream

As if we couldn't already thank Ben & Jerry's enough for bringing us Free Cone Day last week, now their tour is back in Miami for its fourth year and feeding the masses. With temperatures already creeping into the 80s, this ice-cream truck for grownups is a welcome visitor.

Simply tweet @BenJerrysTruck using the hashtag #CoreTour to request a stop until May 6. That's right, you have three weeks to become the most popular person at your office. Who can say no to free ice cream?

Perhaps you've already heard of their new "core" flavors. If not, now is the time to get schooled. Cores feature a smooth center of fudge, caramel, or raspberry jam, surrounded by Ben & Jerry's signature ice cream. If you're a Nutella fan, Hazed & Confused, with chocolate and hazelnut ice creams with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core, is the way to go. If you prefer sweet and salty, Salted Caramel Blondie with sweet cream ice cream with blondie brownies and a salted caramel core is for you. There are six of these tempting combos. We're planning on trying them all.

If you would rather find the truck yourself than tweet it your way, visit the kickoff party this Friday at the Bakehouse Art Complex. From 5 to 7 p.m., join the @BenJerrysTruck for happy hour featuring food, drinks, music, and art.

May the ice-cream odds be ever in your favor.
