To celebrate the longest day of the year (which also going to be a really hot one here in the Tristate), Kroger is giving away thousands and thousands of pints of Kroger Brand ice cream. There will be approximately fifteen hours of sunlight on Thursday, so that breaks down to 900 minutes. If you do the math, you'll see that Kroger's giving away 50 pints of ice cream per minute.

Now, to get your own free pint, you're encouraged to check this website- on Thursday. That's when the grocery store chain will make available single-use digital coupons for a FREE pint of Kroger Brand Ice Cream. Of course, this offer will only be while supplies last and they will likely go quickly.

The coupon is redeemable only in the United States, but the promotion is NOT valid in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia or Wyoming.

According to the Kroger website, the free coupon can applied to in-store, pickup or delivery orders.
