The third Sunday in July is one of the sweetest days of the year – International Ice Cream Day! Here’s the scoop on the cool deals offered around the United States today. (Check your local news to find deals throughout the world, like Australia‘s Ben & Jerry’s giveaways.)

McDonald’s is giving away free vanilla soft serve cones to promote their new ice cream formulation, which they say contains no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. If you want the freebie to continue the rest of your life, you can use the McDonald’s mobile app between 2 and 5 p.m. for the chance to win a lifetime supply of the smooth treat.
