McDonald's Free Ice Cream

And there's a chance you could win free soft-serve for life

What's the only thing better than enjoying your favorite cone on National Ice Cream Day? If that cone is free, of course. And to celebrate the holiday on Sunday, July 16, McDonald's is giving away free soft-serve ice cream cones to customers nationwide. The promotion comes on the heels of the company's revamped soft-serve recipe, which is now made with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

But that's not all. One lucky guest will have their own real-life Willy Wonka moment and receive a limited-edition Golden Arches Cone, earning them free soft-serve for life. You don't have to wear any special costumes to get in on the action but you do have to download the McDonald's mobile app for more details.

Mark your calendar, because this is a sweet deal you don't want to miss.
