Who wants a free pint of ice cream? To celebrate the Summer Solstice, Kroger is giving away 45,000 free pints of ice cream on the longest day of the year.

(I worry that the title of this article may not resonate with anyone under 30. There's an old expression:  "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!" Let's try to bring that one back, shall we?)

Why is Kroger Giving Away 45,000  Pints of Ice Cream?

The Ohio-based retailer is giving away free pints of its Kroger brand ice cream to celebrate the Summer Solstice on June 20. As summer arrives, June 20 is the longest day of the year - so Kroger will give away 50 pints of ice cream each minute during sunlight hours.

Let's do the math.

Most of us here in the US will see 15 full hours of sunlight on June 20, more than any other day of the year. By my calculation (I asked Alexa) 15 hours equals 900 minutes. At the rate of 50 pints per minute, that brings us to a grand total of 45,000 pints of frozen deliciousness.
