Before you read this story...
Dear reader, we're asking for your help to keep local reporting available for all. Your financial support keeps stories like this one free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

That's right, sweets lovahs, if your craving for that cold creamy stuff comes with a side of tenacity, you might want to get in line at the nearest Ben & Jerry's scoop shop for their annual Free Cone Day.

From B&J's site: "Around the world, Scoop Shops are opening their doors from noon to 8:00 pm, to serve up a free scoop of your favorite flavor. Please check with your local Scoop Shop for more info!"

There are six Los Angeles scoop shops that are participating: Long Beach, Northridge, Burbank, Howard Hughes Center, Santa Monica and Sherman Oaks.

They're hoping you'll try their new Greek Yogurt, but you might want to taste some Schweddy Balls as your freebie. Or not.
