MINNEAPOLIS, May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, May 14, 2019 between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m., ice cream fans across the U.S. can celebrate Free Cone Day by visiting participating Häagen-Dazs Shops locations to enjoy one free scoop of ice cream in a sugar cone, cake cone or cup.
"Häagen-Dazs knows your best deserves our best, which is why we are celebrating our customers with free scoops on May 14, an ongoing commitment to support honey bees and a brand new way to earn rewards at Häagen-Dazs Shops," said Adam Hanson, The Häagen-Dazs Shoppe Company, Inc. President and General Manager. "We look forward to Free Cone Day every year as an opportunity to thank our loyal fans while simultaneously recognizing the pollinators that make our ice cream possible."
Häagen-Dazs is Sweet on Honey Bees
Häagen-Dazs is built on a passion for transforming the finest ingredients into extraordinary ice cream. To continue doing so, Häagen-Dazs is bolstering its decade-long commitment to help some of its hardest workers: the bees. Bees are critical to the environment, supporting one-third of the world's crops, including ingredients that are used in more than one-third of Häagen-Dazs ice cream flavors. Without honey bees, there would be no Vanilla Swiss Almond, Strawberry or Rocky Road.
As the newest milestone in the Häagen-Dazs Loves Honey Bees initiative, select Häagen-Dazs flavors are in the process of earning the Xerces Bee Better Certification. Developed by longtime partner The Xerces Society, the certification is a robust third-party verified standard that requires the elimination of harmful pesticide practices and the creation of large pollinator habitats on farms. When consumers choose Bee Better Certified products, they can feel confident that their decision directly benefits farms that prioritize pollinator conservation.
