It's National Ice Cream Day — Here's Where You Can Scoop Up Some Ice Cream Deals & Freebies

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. And, we all got a little something to scream about today, because it’s National Ice Cream Day! In honor of this all-American occasion, some of our favorite scoop shops are offering some ~cool~ ice cream deals and freebies today, July 21, because if there is one thing better than ice cream, it’s free ice cream. 


You gotta love a good BOGO deal. For National Ice Cream Day, Carvel is offering buy-one-get-one deal, so you can share with a friend, or treat yourself to two (which is probably what we’ll be doing). 

Dippin’ Dots

Drop in to Dippin’ Dots to receive a free mini cup of deliciousness. According to Thrillist, each participating location will only be serving the deal for a couple hours, so make sure to check in with you local Dippin’ Dots shop. 

Dylan’s Candy Bar

To celebrate National Ice Cream Day, participating Dylan’s Candy Bar stores are offering a free scoop when you mention the glorious holiday. 

Johnny Rockets 

This is one (Johnny B.) good deal, because Johnny Rockets is offering a free shake with the purchase of any entree.


Godiva is offering a buy-one-get-one 50 percent off soft serve and parfaits. Sign us up!

Nutella Café​

Be one of the first 50 customers at the New York and Chicago location to score a free Frozen Nutella Pop. Everyone after the first 50 customers will get a complimentary scoop of gelato. Yum!
