How can you hold and consume ice cream with your hands without creating a mess? is a question that has baffled philosophers and commoners alike since the beginning of time. Celebrate the long-awaited answer, National Ice Cream Cone Day, on September 22 by biting into America’s favorite method to consume a cool, sweet treat!
The background of National Ice Cream Cone Day
Prior to the invention of the ice cream cone, it was impossible to consume ice cream without dripping it down one’s limbs or chin and ruining one’s clothing. Due to this so-simple-it’s-incredible-nobody-thought-of-it-earlier innovation, ice cream cones are now available in waffle, pretzel, chocolate-coated, wafer, sugar, and other varieties. Celebrate National Ice Cream Cone Day by grabbing your favorite cone (ours is sugar!) and enjoying the remaining warm days.
Included in the appeal of the ice cream cone are the additional textures and flavors it lends to the dessert. Adding a pretzel cone to chocolate ice cream improves it immeasurably, and adding a crispy vanilla cone to mango sorbet makes the dessert much more exciting. In addition to being a delectable addition to the ice cream treat you’re holding in your hand, every time you consume ice cream in a cone, you’re helping the environment by not using a disposable plastic spoon and cup. So, love the planet and savor ice cream — it’s almost as if you CAN have your cake and eat it too! Cup or cone? It is the age-old conundrum for ice cream lovers in the United States. Opinions vary.
