There are three sorts of ice cream cone: the cup cone, the sugar cone, and the waffle cone. Let us ignore the waffle cone, because they didn’t have them when I was a kid. The cup cone has two advantages: you can set it down, and it is better for holding soft-serve ice cream. The sugar cone has one advantage: it tastes good.
The conundrum: why can’t they make a sugar cone in the form of a waffle cone? Is it because something in the process of making the sugar cone requires flat sheets that can be rolled by not shaped? I have been wondering about this as long as I can remember.
