Here’s the scoop on getting some free ice cream in Seattle and King County:
For the first treat, offered Tuesday (Aug. 5), you need to be of voting age — and to vote. Bring in the tear-off strip (this one) from your King County elections ballot to any Molly Moon Ice Cream to get a free single scoop.
The second giveaway is available through Aug. 27, courtesy of the Ben & Jerry’s “Scoop Truck Tour.” The traveling truck will serve two new flavors, Salted Caramel (well — new to them) and “Hazed & Confused” at various “local community events, businesses and non- profits.” One early stop was Westlake Center. To find out where the truck is on a given day, watch its Twitter account. You can also tweet the truck to try to get the drivers to come to where you are.
