ROANOKE, Va. – Who doesn't like free ice cream?

Free Cone Day is being celebrated at most Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shops around the world Tuesday, April 9.

The day is a way for the company to celebrate its customers with a free scoop of ice cream.

The Scoop Shops in Roanoke, Christiansburg and Charlottesville are all participating.

The "holiday" first began in 1979, during the company's first year of business, in a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont. In 2015, Ben & Jerry's gave away more than 1 million scoops of ice cream.
