Say you’ve got an empty cone–and for the sake of this argument, let’s pretend you like cones–what kind of ice cream would you put in it?

First we have to choose soft serve versus hard ice cream. Then we have to talk about sprinkles. The kid in me wants a sugar cone with vanilla soft serve and choco or rainbow sprinkles. The adult would like a waffle cone with choco chip or mint choco chip.

Hmm. Jon is right [2] - cone type dictates ice cream choice.

For a sugar cone, a scope of mint chocolate chip on the bottom, a scope of mint moose tracks on the top. (You didn't say we were limited to just one kind of ice cream. =)

For a waffle cone, chocolate, with some kind of chocolate candy (not sprinkles, though).

For a "kids" cone, soft serve chocolate-vanilla twist, with nothing else.

Soft: Dickey's (Bethany Beach) Frozen Custard (chocolate-vanilla twist)

Hard: Lappert's (Kauai) White Chocolate Macadamia or Haagen-Dazs Pralines and Cream

Yeah, I think waffle cones aren't the sprinkle kinds. Pralines and Cream. Man, that sounds good.

soft: chocolate ice cream from Carvel

hard: chocolate ice cream from haagen dazs

wait, i think i'm confused by sugar/waffle. the carvel cone is lighter in color and has the flat bottom. other places have ones like the picture above. i can do either cone. see, i'm not picky!

no sprinkles. nothing fancy.

what - were you expecting something else?! ; )

Lived in Va. Beach for 5 years and worked in downtown Norfolk - this place was a must-go at least a few times a month!
