Sunny rays, bathing suit season, and hot beach days, summer is in full effect and what's a better way to cool down than with ice cream? Sorry. I meant, FREE ice cream?
Because they totally get it, McDonald's is hooking up its customers with a free ice cream cone in honor of National Ice Cream Day celebrated the third Sunday of every July.
This basically means that on Sunday, July 16, participating McDonald's in the U.S. will give away free vanilla soft-serve cones with no purchase needed, according to Time.
Back in Fall 2016, the fast food restaurant chain announced a change in its vanilla soft serve, revealing that it's now made with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
This includes the cone, McCafé Shakes, and McFlurry desserts. “This summer we have a sweet surprise,” said Darci Forrest, senior director of menu innovation at McDonald’s.
"We've been raising the bar at McDonald's on serving delicious food that our customers can feel good about eating. Soft serve now joins other changes we have made, such as removing artificial preservatives from McNuggets, committing to cage-free eggs by 2025 and only serving chicken made from chicken not treated with antibiotics important to human medicine*. This, combined with the fact that 100 percent of the milk used in our soft serve is U.S. sourced, makes this classic treat even more enjoyable during the hot summer months," she added.
