There is always an urgent need for blood donations in the Capital Region. Now if you give blood, you will be rewarded with a delicious pint of Stewart's ice cream or gelato. It's that time of year again for the "Give a Pint, Get a Pint" program.
When you are enjoying delicious Stewart's ice cream, you don't really think about its history. Well, I don't. I only think about the most difficult decision. What amazing flavor am I going to get a pint of and eat in one sitting? But there is a backstory and it's quite the history lesson of how Stewart's became a staple in the Capital Region and beyond.
Time for some free ice cream!
Even though I'm a New Yorker, I spent many years living in Vermont. So Ben & Jerry's ice cream was a staple for many years of my life. As for "Free Cone Day"? Well, it basically was a holiday we looked forward to every year.
