National Ice Cream Cone Day

While some controversy exists as to who invented the ice cream cone, the earliest mention shows up in French cookbooks around 1825. Originally referred to as “little waffles,” the cones were waffles rolled into the shape of a cone.

In the United States, ice cream cones first became popular in the late 1800s. Confectioners turned the first cones by hand. The ice cream cone made its debut at the World’s Fair in St. Louis in 1904. In 1912, an inventor from Oregon obtained a patent for a machine to make them. He sold his company to Nabisco in 1928, and they still make ice cream cones today.

What's your favorite type of cone and flavor? Whatever it is, take a few moments to enjoy a nice cone with one or serveral scoops of your favorite(s).
