National Ice Cream Cone Day 2023: How can one hold and eat ice cream with their hands without making a mess? This question has baffled philosophers and commoners alike since the beginning of time. Celebrate the long-awaited answer, National Ice Cream Cone Day, on September 22 by biting into America’s favorite way to consume a cool, sweet treat!
Prior to the invention of the ice cream cone, it was impossible to consume ice cream without dripping it down one’s arms or chin and ruining one’s clothing. Due to this so-simple-it’s-incredible-nobody-thought-of-it-earlier innovation, ice cream cones are now available in waffle, pretzel, chocolate-coated, wafer, sugar, and other varieties. Celebrate National Ice Cream Cone Day by grabbing your favorite cone (ours is sugar!) and enjoying the remaining warm days.

WHY WE APPRECIATE NATIONAL ICE CREAM CONE DAY
Cones of ice cream add flavor and texture
Included in the appeal of the ice cream cone are the additional textures and flavors it adds to the dessert. Adding a pretzel cone to chocolate ice cream improves it immeasurably, and adding a crunchy vanilla cone to mango sorbet makes the dessert much more exciting.
Cones of ice cream are eco-friendly.
In addition to being a delicious addition to the ice cream treat you’re holding in your hand, every time you eat ice cream in a cone, you’re helping the environment by not using a disposable plastic spoon and cup. So, love the planet and enjoy ice cream — it’s almost as if you CAN have your cake and eat it too!
Ice cream cones are superior to cups.
Cup or cone? It is the age-old question for ice cream lovers in the United States. While this point is debatable (perhaps something to discuss over ice cream with friends), it is undeniable that cones are superior to cups.
