Ice cream cone

Ice cream cone . An ice cream cone or cone is a conical shaped dry paste, usually made of waffles, which allows ice cream to be drunk without the need for a container and sometimes a spoon . In addition to waffles, ice cream cones can be made with cookies , pretzel and sugar.

Waffles were mentioned in French cookbooks as early as 1825 , when Julien Archambault described a cornet made by rolling small wafers. Another printed reference to an edible cone or basket appears in Mrs AB Marshall’s Cookery Book , written in 1887 by Agnes B. Marshall 1855 – 1905 in England , an influential innovator who published two cookbooks and had a cooking school . His recipe for a Cornet with Cream says that the cones were made with almonds and baked in the oven , pressing betweenplates .

In the United States , the cornets or nacelles of ice cream became popular in the first decade of the twentieth century . On December 13, 1903, a New Yorker named Italo Marchioni received US Patent No. 746971 on a mold for making ice cream pasta cups , having claimed that he has been selling ice cream in edible pasta containers since 1896 . However, his patent was not for a cone and he lost the lawsuits he filed against cone manufacturers for patent infringement.

The idea of ​​selling a frozen ice cream cone so that cone and ice cream were one product, storable in a freezer was an old ice cream maker dream , but it wasn’t until 1928 when JT Stubby Parker of Fort Worth Texas created a cone ice cream with these characteristics. To market it, he founded The Drumstick Company in 1931 , which was purchased in 1991 by Nestlé . In 1959 , Spica , an Italian ice cream maker based in Naples, invented a process to isolate the inside of the wafer cone with a layer of oil , sugar and chocolate . Spica registered the Cornetto brand in 1960 . Initially sales were poor, but in 1976 Unilever acquired Spica and launched a massive marketing campaign across Europe , making it one of the most popular ice creams in the world today.
