This Grocery Store Is Giving Away 45,000 Pints of Ice Cream This Summer

Here’s how to get yours.



If the “Family Feud” host asked, “What’s the number one summer dessert?” we predict the top answer would be ice cream. We indeed eat ice cream year-round, but in our minds, the creamy treat—scooped in a bowl or a cone, sandwiched between two chocolate cookies, or topped with hot fudge in an ice cream sundae—is linked to summer.

The only thing better than ice cream in summer is free ice cream, and Kroger is giving away 50 pints of its store-brand ice cream for every minute of sunlight on the summer solstice, June 20. That totals 900 minutes of sunlight, or 45,000 pints of ice cream.

"Summer means more time with family, more time by the pool, and more time indulging in our favorite treats, and nothing says a perfect summer day like sunshine and Kroger Brand ice cream," said Juan De Paoli, vice president of Our Brands for Kroger. "With more sunshine to enjoy a sweet treat, we are giving away ice cream for 15 hours straight; that is a whole lot of free ice cream."



How To Score Free Kroger Ice Cream

To get a free pint of ice cream, fans can visit on June 20 and choose the Kroger-owned store they shop at from a drop-down list including, Baker’s, City Market, Dillons, Food 4 Less, Foods Co, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, Gerbes, Jay C Food Store, King Soopers, Kroger, Mariano’s, Metro Market, Pay-Less Super Markets, Pick’n Save, QFC, Ralphs, and Smith’s Food and Drug.

Those who visit the site on June 20 can claim a limited-time, single-use digital coupon for a free pint of their favorite Kroger brand ice cream, while supplies last. The coupon can be applied to in-store, pickup, or delivery orders. The promotion is good in all U.S. states except California, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Dakota, Nevada, Tennessee, and Virginia.

If you're lucky enough to snag a free pint of ice cream, we suggest you turn your find into a special treat or two, such as a milkshake or a root beer float. This is quite the scoop.
