This shirt is so soft that it'll remind you of that one time at Dairy Queen. Gosh, so funny.
When it comes to ice cream cones, most people do not know the difference between a waffle cone and a sugar cone.
A waffle cone is a classic waffle cone with a crunchy texture. It’s made using a specialized waffle iron. It’s rolled with a pointy bottom and a wide mouth where you can put your ice cream. In most ice cream shops, waffle cones are made in-house.
Although it looks the same, a sugar cone has a darker color and a different lattice pattern. Its made from a different batter. Its texture is also harder than a waffle cone. Interestingly, it has less sugar despite having it on its name.
Sugar cones are smaller than waffle cones, but it’s sturdier. It also has a round top so it can be stacked and packaged together.
Before 1912, cones were hand-rolled. Frederick Bruckman, from Portland, Oregon, created (and patented) a machine for rolling ice cream cones. He sold his company to Nabisco which still manufactures sugar cones up to now.
In 1928, J.T. "Stubby" Parker created a cone pre-filled with ice cream and stored in a freezer. He later created the Drumstick company in 1931 and was bought out by Nestle in 1991.
Meanwhile, Spica, an Italian ice cream manufacturer, created a waffle cone that was insulated from the ice cream. It had a layer of oil, sugar, and chocolate on the inside. They marketed the brand as Cornetto, and it has become a popular ice cream now.
