I was surprised to see Sugar and Waffle so close.

btw, you can drop a mini marshmellow into the bottom of the cone
to keep ice cream from dripping out.

I think we should get rid of the "I don't like" choice.
How do you like your potatoes? answer: I don't like potatos.
Well, then, don't answer. I think it's implied that if you answer, you like cones. So the percentages is that of those who eat cones. Of those that eat cones: X% like Wafer, X% like Sugar, etc.

I don't know...maybe it's me, but I always hate the "I don't like it" choice to these questions.

Anyway, for soft-serve ice cream I prefer wafer cones, but for regular hard ice-cream, I like the good ol' sugar cone. Since soft-serve is sort of a North East thing, I answered sugar cone, figuring the question was based on hard ice cream.

I was surprised as well to see sugar and waffle cones so close. I think waffle cones are delicious, but they sort of overwhelm the ice cream -- you taste the cone more than the ice cream. For me, sugar cones are the happy medium between the overly assertive waffle cone and the Styrofoam nothing of a wafer cone.

Scorereader, In a way I agree with you. However, I'm one who voted "I don't like cones". I ask for ice cream in a cup. Don't believe I've ever participated in posts discussing "best" or "worst" in America, NYC or New Mexico. Those sort of questions/responses seem very shallow to me. Perhaps theres a more positive way to provide such an option.

The mini marshmallow idea is pure genius for those that don't like drippings out of the bottom of a sugar cone. I really like that idea. I am still a kid at heart though and bite off the bottom to encourage the drippings so I can suck in all that liquid gold.

Still that is one hell of a tip Captain, You should try to patent a sugar cone with a tasty marshmallow bottom. Please remember me when you are a billionaire.

I worked at Oscar's Frozen Custard stand summer of '93 & I got to make the waffle cones. I have parts of my fingertips that I will never get back. The girls would bring me a bucket of batter & I would make the cones & people would watch me through the glass. It starts out as a waffle, but thinner, of course. You have to work very fast, while the waffle is still pliable. This causes hot fingers, but the people loved them. No one else wanted to do it, because of the burnt finger factor, but since I folded towels ar JC Penney's at night that summer, I would rather make cones than chop onions.

I will never ever eat a waffle cone after that summer. Ever. I can still smell them cooking.

I will take a sugar cone, every time. Wafer cones are for cupcakes.

I'm not surprised by that. I've always been a "sugar cone guy", but the waffle cones are so prevalent in ice cream stores today.

Youngsters don't understand the pure joy that comes from trying to finish a double scoop before it melts in your lap.

You are so right, trying to eat the ice cream fast on a hot day before the cone turns soggy

I'm also a waffle cone guy. It seems you can fit more ice cream in a wide mouthed waffle cone.

I love the waffle cones at Oberwiess Dairy. It's thick, dipped in chocolate and a decent snack all on its own.

I've always been a waffle cone guy but, I have developed a taste for my ice cream and gelato in a cup to save a few calories. I really find I enjoy it more this way.

The Marble Slab in Knoxville was voted the best ice cream in Knoxville. They often are baking the waffle cones in a waffle maker while you are in the shop and they smell really good.

John Tebeau has a painting of an "Eat-It-All" cake cone up today:

...as for my favorite...it depends on what's going inside. With soft serve I like the cake cone, with single scoop hand dipped a sugar cone and with multiple scoops got to go with the chocolate dipped (with nuts) waffle cone!

Is the preference to a cup only a cleanliness issue...because I always get a cup but get a cone on top too...why wouldn't you? It's like an added treat!

Good to know! Do you offer waffle cones? If such the discrepancy...do you attribute it to price?
