WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- In celebration of National Ice Cream Day Sunday, July 16, McDonald’s USA is celebrating its iconic vanilla soft serve by treating fans in two ways: at participating restaurants nationwide, free vanilla cones will be offered all day long through the McDonald’s app and one lucky guest will have the chance to win free soft serve for life.
All you have to do is to download the McDonald’s mobile app and redeem the free offer.
In addition, one guest will receive a special “Golden Arches Cone,” an exclusive, limited edition cone that entitles the winner to McDonald’s soft serve for life.
For a chance to win the Golden Arches Cone, soft serve enthusiasts must redeem the Free Vanilla Cone offer in the mobile app on July 16 between 2 p.m and 5 p.m.
In May of this year, McDonald’s unveiled a sweet surprise – that its soft serve is made with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. McDonald’s started the switch in Fall of 2016 but announced it once nearly all of its 14,000-plus restaurants nationwide were offering the new treat.
This joined other changes McDonald’s has made, such as removing artificial preservatives from McNuggets, committing to cage-free eggs by 2025 in the U.S. and Canada, and only serving chicken made from chickens not treated with antibiotics important to human medicine.
