The official start of spring is right around the corner, and much like seasonably warmer weather, Dairy Queen's Free Cone Day is also returning for lovers of ice cream and freebies.

On Wednesday, March 20, fans can enjoy a free small vanilla soft-serve cone (while supplies last). The bad news is that it's limited to one per customer. The good news is that the Lubbock Dairy Queen locations are participating in the promotion, which makes this food lover extra happy!

The good folks at DQ also wanted to find out if happiness can be measured, and their answer is "Yes it can, if cool treats and sticky chins are involved."

According to a national customer survey commissioned by American Dairy Queen Corporation, 92.2 percent of Americans say a DQ soft-serve cone would make them happy.

The consumer survey also uncovered that:

  • People are happier on Free Cone Day than they are on their own birthday.
  • 61.6 percent would share a bite of their DQ cone with their significant other, but only 23 percent would share the first bite.
