If you have a passion for ice cream, Sunday is a good day for you.
Several national restaurant chains are celebrating National Ice Cream day with deals on Sunday and beyond.
While most deals are for free or discounted single servings of ice cream, fans of McDonald’s vanilla soft-serve cones have a chance to win a “lifetime supply” of the ice cream if they are the lucky person who gets the Golden Arches Cone. One person at each participating location will be given the special cone between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.
Here are some places celebrating National Ice Cream Day. Remember, not every restaurant will offer the special deals. Check with your local restaurant.
16 Handles: You can get a free 4-oz. frozen yogurt from noon-5 p.m. Sunday if you download the app.
Carvel: Buy on cup or cone – any size – and get a second one free.
Dippin' Dots: You can get a free mini cup of ice cream at local Dippin’ Dots during a two-hour window on Sunday. Check with local stores for the times they are honoring the offer.
Friendly's: You can get a coupon for a free ice cream cone when you purchase a cone on Sunday at Friendly’s. For every $2.99 Friend-z ice cream ordered on Sunday, the chain will donate $2 to the Boys & Girls Club of America.
Krystal: You can get sundaes for 99 cents from Sunday through July 23.
