GLUTEN-FREE ICE CREAM SUGAR CONES

These gluten-free sugar cones travelled back from San Francisco in my carryon luggage, which is probably why half of them broke, but I would still recommend checking the box before purchasing because they are a bit lighter than the glutenous ones, if I'm remembering correctly. I bought them at Whole Foods and probably I didn't have to. They're most likely right here, a short walk from where I live, at my local Whole Foods, but sugar-cone excitement is in my blood. Ever since childhood, if there were no sugar cones available, I'd ask for a paper cup, rather than eat what tasted like a paper cup. Above, the glamorized illustration. Below, the totally casual yet accurate chocolate ice cream cone I prepared. You can see the tiny pieces of cone about to crack off, but did that bother me? Not one bit. It could have been heavier, sweeter, browner, but it's the closest to the childhood and pre-celiac cone I've found. If you know a brand you truly love, let me know. These are made by Edward & Sons, and they will do just fine until a better one comes along.

Oh, I'm so glad to hear these are good. I saw them and started to buy some, but they are a bit pricey, and I'm not eating as much ice cream as I used to....so I procrastinated.
Now, I have someone who says they are worth it...I think I'll have to try some.
yum.

i do think they're worth it, but try to open the box right after you pay for them to make sure they're not broken! half of mine were, probably due to flying with them, but who knows....

let me know what you think,OK?
