A cone for all seasons

The ice cream cone.
Since the early 1800’s people have been eating ice cream cones. The cones have come in many shapes and sizes. They can be covered in toppings in the form of a walking sundae, and evenually become so top-heavy that they must be placed face-down in a small bucket.

I wish to reference the classic soft-serve cone from Dairy Queen. Be it the standard vanilla, chocolate (pictured) or the ‘twist’, this vendor got it right. Consistency, presentation, flavor, the whole 9-yards.

Dairy Queen has offered a number of other delightful treats from the Mr. Misty (slush) to the Dilly Bar, to the Peanut Buster Parfait, culminating in the Blizzard, but I believe the finest expression of ice cream is found simply on top of an Eat-it-all cone, undecorated and unblemished.

or on a stick… cause man, isn’t everything better on a stick?

… maybe it’s just me.
