Friday, June 21 is officially the first day of summer, which is worth celebrating with ice cream. Dairy Queen agrees, and to celebrate they’re giving away free cones just like they usually do on the first day of spring. But since this is summer we’re talking about, Dairy Queen is offering even more free options than the typical small vanilla, chocolate, or swirl cone. On June 21, you can score a free small classic cone or a small dipped cone, which includes the super-popular new Orange Dreamsicle flavor.
If you want a free cone to celebrate summer, don’t just swing by the drive-through. In order to get your cone, you’ll have to download the Dairy Queen app (which is free for both Apple and Android phones). Then, you’ll be able to combine a coupon for a free cone with any purchase.
You can use your app coupon for an Orange Dreamsicle dipped cone, a chocolate dipped cone, or, if you’re feeling traditional, a plain vanilla cone. If you haven’t heard the buzz about the Dreamsicle cone, it starts off as a regular vanilla cone, then gets dipped in a luscious orange candy coating.
While you’re at DQ, there are plenty of other summer treats to check out, too. Earlier in the year, the ice cream company introduced two perfect warm weather sundaes with their Summer Berry Cake and Brownie and Oreo Cupfections. You can also try their new cake shakes, which come in chocolate and strawberry cake flavors. Or you can sample some of their newest blizzard flavors (or the blizzard of the month) by ordering a blizzard flight for you and your friends. Whether you take advantage of the second free cone day of the year or not, DQ has plenty of new summer treats to keep you busy taste-testing all season long.
