22 Jul Put Down the Phone, Pick Up a Cone
We’re excited to be celebrating National Ice Cream Day on July 21. But who says the celebration has to only last a day? Thanks to former United States President Ronald Reagan, we get to celebrate all month long!
National Ice Cream Month was first signed into law in 1984, and has been a real treat for all ice cream lovers for the last 25 years.
Fortunately, FatBoy can help you celebrate ice cream in a whole new way each day in July. Each week this month we’ll be highlighting a new variety, so you can keep it fun, exciting, and yummy.
Ice Cream Cones
When given the opportunity to put your ice cream in a container or a cone, you’d have to be crazy not to opt for a cone. Cones are a convenient, edible container that taste out of this world, especially when combined with premium scoop-shop ice cream.
Cones have been around for over a century, and come in a lot of different varieties. If you’re not a cone-lover, chances are you’ve likely only tried the cheap, crumbly cones and have never experienced FatBoy’s waffle cones.
At FatBoy, we want our customers to be converts to cones and experience only the best when it comes to ice cream and cones, which is why we’ve created five different cone varieties packed with intense flavors and ultimate goodness. (And we’re not just talking about the ice cream inside, which of course is premium quality). Our waffle cones vary from classic waffle cones, to chocolate waffle cones, to chocolate-lined chocolate waffle cones, and white chocolate-lined waffle cones. Oh yes we did!
The hardest part of your day rests in choosing which flavor to indulge in first. Will it be classic vanilla ice cream drizzled in chocolate, ribboned in caramel, sprinkled with pralines, and filled in a chocolate-lined waffle cone? Or are you a choc-o-holic craving chocolate ice cream topped with fudge and brownie bites inside a chocolate-line chocolate cone? Or… maybe you like to keep things more simple like savoring premium vanilla ice cream that’s been drizzled with chocolate syrup, topped with peanuts, and placed inside a chocolate-lined waffle cone?
See which ones speaks to you by reading more about its variety in our flavor profiles:
Ice cream cones are undoubtedly one of the best inventions ever made, and come in a variety of styles like sugar cones, waffle cones, and wafer cones.
Italo Marchiony is credited with producing the first cone back in 1896, and later had it patented in 1903. However, a similar design was created in 1904 at the St. Louis World’s Fair by Ernest A. Hamwi, a Syrican concessionaire. Hamwi was a vendor who sold waffle-like pastries neighboring an ice cream booth. When the ice cream vendor ran out of dishes, Hamwi helped him out by rolling his waffle-like pastries into cones.
Cone production took off just a couple decades later in the 1920s. And in 1924, a record-number of cones were produced reaching 245 million.
