New Food Trend: Cone Pizza?

Pizza in a cone, eat on the go. Makes you wonder. What's funny/bizarre to me is there are outlets all through Italy.

    Flat pizza with the hot sauce and cheese already does a number on the roof of ones mouth. I can just see what a cone full would do...

    Well, as the saying goes, if you live long enough, you'll see everything.
    So I guess this means we've all lived long enough..

    That tomato mozzerella looks pretty good to me. You don't HAVE to eat the cone and at least it's biodegradable unlike traditional plastic, styorfoam and waxlined paper (unrecyclable) takeout packaging.

    Similar to "pizza in a cup" from the movie The Jerk.

    How the hell do you eat that? I'd imagine most people would take a similar approach of eating the filling first, then the cone at the end...And that would require a fork of some kind, and the absolute worst thing to do with a Pizza is touch it with utensils, that defeats the object of a Pizza, and the purpose of a crust.

    Away with these!

    Looks like someone invested a lot of money in something that one one is going to buy.

    saps - you took the words out of my mouth. Pizza in a cup.

    I truly hope this turns out to be a gag. Like in the 80s when Spy Magazine solicited proposals from PR firms for a new fast-food concept based on healthful, nutritious rabbit, "Hareballs."

    Sorry konopizza and crispycones, but I am not at all interested in your products. Especially the salmon and cream cheese. Everyone knows this belongs on a bagel, which I can already easily eat with just one hand. And thin crust NY style pizza can be folded and eaten with one hand.

    Better luck next time guys, and back to the drawing board for you. You just can't improve on the original design of pizza or bagels with cream cheese and lox. And, I'll take my tomato and fresh mozzarella salad with big slices on a plate drizzled with balsmic vinegar.

    After reading thru the entire Crispycones website, I can see possibilities for it.....not with pizza, but with chilli (which they do mention) or maybe beef stew, jambalaya or even biscuits & gravy (none of which they mention). This could be a good way to offer popular "sit-down" type foods not now easily available at concerts, fairs and ball games without creating a lot of trash to be cleaned up. After all, the ice cream cone was first introduced to make it easier to eat ice cream while walking, without having to sit at a table.

    6star, that's a great idea. A fried (hard) corn tortilla cone filled with chili.

    Now that's something I would buy. I would want a spoon to eat the chili though. I think it would be too messy to eat out of the cone.

    Now you're talking! I find the pizza idea very odd, but I did have a passing thought that "Frito Pie" is a similar walk-around food for chili.

    Other thoughts:

    Oriental stir-fry of all types (maybe some including noodles or rice) in cones, and call your cart/stand "Stir Crazy".

    Maybe mac and cheese served in a cone, or corn pudding/fried cream corn in a cornbread cone.

    Loose-meat sandwiches (Maid-Rites, etc.) might be a lot easier to eat (not as messy) in a cone format.

    Thicker soups normally served in a bread bowl could be offered in cones.

    I suppose as long as they put ranch dressing on it, people will eat it.

    Don't you see? The cones are taking over! You're next!
