With temperatures predicted to crest 80 degrees today in St. Louis, Gut Check could use some ice cream -- but then, couldn't we always?

Today is Ben & Jerry's annual Free Cone Day, with area locations slinging free scoops of ice cream from Noon to 8 p.m. Find out where to get your free sugar fix after the jump.

Many of the chains' St. Louis stores have closed in the past few years, and of the three still in business, only two are participating in free cone day: Ben & Jerry's-Delmar Loop (6380 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-721-8887) and Ben & Jerry's-St. Louis Galleria (1155 St. Louis Galleria; 314-727-7128).

As it does each year, Ben & Jerry's asks patrons participating in Free Cone Day to donate a few dollars to benefit a charity of its choice.
