Dairy Queen is ushering in the warmer weather with the return of their DQ Free Cone Day on Wednesday, March 20 (the first day of spring). Like always, the fast food company is handing out one complimentary vanilla soft-serve cone to customers all over the country. The deal is only good for one per customer and is not valid at DQ mall locations. To celebrate this year, Dairy Queen conducted a survey to find out if a free DQ cone would make people happy — and 92.2 percent of Americans said it would, according to a press release.
