When you were a kid, you had to sit and listen for the (sometimes creepy) music-box sounds of the ice cream truck. When you heard it, you mined your pockets for enough change to buy a treat.

This month in Washington, D.C., you don’t even need money to stalk out mobile dairy treats — just a Twitter account.

To score a free cone, just tweet the Ben & Jerry’s truck (@BenJerrysTruck) your location and hope the ice cream man comes to you.

The Core Tour is rolling through 12 U.S. cities this summer. Ben & Jerry’s ice cream truck will be cruising D.C. streets until June 29.
