You scream, I scream, we all scream for free ice-cream, right?

Well good news... Ben and Jerry's is giving away free ice-cream cones at some of its stores.

We know you might not think it is the same as Kelly's or Roskilly's, but it looks like Newquay will be taking part!

The harbour town, that is home to the only Ben and Jerry's store in Cornwall, is listed on the website as one of the participants for 'free cone day'.

You can grab a scoop with no charge between 12pm and 8pm on Tuesday 9th April.

Last year, locals who flocked to the town to get their hands on free cones donated to charity.

On its website, the chain says: "Every time you enjoy a scoop of Ben & Jerry's, you're showing us how much you care.

"We love you too, & Free Cone Day is our favorite way to show it!

"Since 1979, it’s our way to celebrate and say thanks to our awesome fans for another year of support, and we've kept it up every year since, spreading the peace, love & FREE ice cream around the world!

"You'd better start thinking about the tough decisions you'll need to make: Which Flavour? Cup or cone? Who's coming with you?

"This year's extravaganza will be on Tuesday, April 9, so be sure to mark your calendars and grab your friends!"
