Today Is “Ice Cream Cone Day” Gotta do another Happy Dance
I eat all ice cream flavors all year long, but it’s usually ice cream I buy at the supermarket and put in a bowl not a cone.
An ice cream cone is a dry, cone-shaped shell, usually made of a wafer similar in texture to a waffle, which enables ice cream to be held in the hand and eaten without a bowl or spoon. Various types of ice cream cones include waffle cones, cake cones (or wafer cones), sugar cones and chocolate-coated cones.
A variety of double cone exists that allows two scoops of ice cream to be served side by side. Ice cream cones may also be made with a flat bottom instead of the pointed lower bottom, enabling the ice cream and “cone” to stand upright on a surface without support. These types of wafer cups are called kiddie cups, cake cones or cool cups.
It’s funny there is no mention of ice cream on this day just the cone. Maybe we are all suppose to buy a box of cones and just eat them 🙂 I prefer waffle cones myself.
Today’s Assignment: Eat ice cream from only a cone. Whether you get it at an ice cream shop or buy the ice cream and the cones at the supermarket, you must put the ice cream in a cone. The assignment is unlimited and can be done as many times as needed. 😉
