Kroger recently announced it is giving away 50 pints of its store-brand ice cream per minute to celebrate the summer solstice on Thursday, June 20, 2024.

Summer solstice marks the official start of the season. 

It’s the day with the longest period of sunlight in the Northern Hemisphere — about 15 hours in all.


That adds up to 900 minutes of sunlight — which equates to 45,000 pints of free ice cream at Kroger.

“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,” Juan De Paoli, vice president of Kroger brands, said in a news release. 

“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.”

To take advantage of the promotion, customers can claim a single-use digital coupon on June 20 for a free pint of Kroger-brand ice cream.

Kroger said the coupon is redeemable across most of the Kroger family of stores. It can be applied to pick-up or delivery orders.

Ice cream lovers in 10 states might be in for a letdown, however. 

The promotion isn’t valid in California, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Nevada, Tennessee or Virginia because of state laws regarding dairy products, Kroger spokesperson Erin Rolfes told Fox News Digital.
