NATIONAL ICE CREAM CONE DAY

National Ice Cream Cone Day is celebrated annually on September 22.

While there is some controversy as to who invented the ice cream cone, one of the earliest mentions of them showed up in French cook books around 1825.  They were originally referred to as “little waffles” rolled into a cone shape.

Ice cream cones first became popular in the United States in the late 1800s.  The earliest cones were rolled 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.

The ice cream cone continues to be a popular treat for children and adults alike as more flavors of ice cream continue to be made available to please our palates.
