1950's ice cream

Does anyone remember an ice cream that came in a square? Individual, possibly Carnation?

    Welcome aboard. I do vaguely remember a "square" ice cream. Was it a square cone?

    Hershey's ice cream came in a square. At the grocery store in town, they would slice off about a 1-1 1/2 inch piece and put it in a special cone that had a rectangular opening. The chocolate marshmallow was especially good, tunnels of marshmallow that ran down when the ice cream was cut. Thanks, that brought back a fond childhood memory.

    thanks for the responses... this was an individual serving of ice cream that came packaged in dairy cardboard... those marshmallow things sound good

    The Carnation Ice Cream I recall from the 50's was served in cones at the local SAV-ON Drug Store. 5 cents for a single, and 10 cents for a double scoop. My favorite flavor was English Toffee with Peppermint Stick running a close second.

    Later on (in the 80's when I returned to the West Coast) the cone sales had moved to THRIFTY Drugs and the prices had increased considerably...but the quality was there. At that point the Apricot Mango Sherbet was my flavor of choice.

    Kimmy, that was probably it. Our mom bought them for b'day parties.

    Yes, I think I remember - it had a sheet of paper around it. Also there were slices that had paper, maybe 1" thick rectangles in vanilla also "Neopolitan" I remember the paper...
