Ben & Jerry’s wants to help you satisfy your sweet tooth. Its scoop shops are offering free ice cream from noon to 8 p.m. today at locations across the country.

“Get in line as many times as you like,” Ben & Jerry’s said in an email promoting Free Cone Day. “It’s our way of saying thanks for your dedicated support and to celebrate 34 years of scooping the chunkiest and funkiest ice cream.”

There are four Ben & Jerry’s locations in Western Washington, but only one in Pierce County (and you’ll have to pay a toll to get to it if you don’t live on that side of the bridge):

* Gig Harbor, 4635 Point Fosdick Drive, in the Uptown Gig Harbor shopping center.

* Tukwila, inside Southcenter Mall.

* Kirkland, 176 Lake St. S.

* Issaquah, 1011 N.E. High St., at the Issaquah Highlands.
