I scream for free ice cream AGAIN!
Haagen-Dazs is celebrating their 50th Anniversary by sharing free ice cream at a participating location near you (click HERE to find one). Enjoy a scoop of one of these 3 original flavors: Chocolate, Coffee or Vanilla in a cake cone ($3.95 Value). So if you missed out on Ben & Jerry's in March (see Cheap Date Idea #135) and Baskin-Robbins last month (see Cheap Date Idea #163), mark your calendar for HD's Free Scoop Day on Tuesday, May 18th, at 4-8 PM. Invite your friends and family and make it a group date!
I think I'm seeing a trend here... So when's the next free ice (or cheap) ice cream day? I decided to google "National Ice Cream Day" and guess what? It does exist! In 1984, President Ronald Reagen designated July as National Ice Cream Month with the 3rd Sunday as National Ice Cream Day! Factoid on Wikipedia: 90% of the nation's population consumes ice cream. Does Hallmark sell cards for this holiday too? Anyway, stay tuned for future date ideas on National Ice Cream Day on 7/18!

UPDATE 05/12/10: TODAY is Free Flavor Day at Haagen-Dazs too!! In honor of hard-working honey bees, you can get another FREE scoop of any flavor of bee-built ice scream today, May 12th, at 4-8 PM at participating locations. That's double the sweet fun in less than a week. Thanks to @RentFoodBroke for sharing the freebie!
