60 servings of summer fun

I love mini ice cream cones. You can break them out any time for a perfect little treat (and I frequently do in the middle of the afternoon- it makes me feel like a fun mom). Perfect for stacking with tiny round melon ball size ice cream scoops!
When I first made one for my son the other day. He said, "Mom these cones are really small?" as if something had gone terrible wrong in the cone manufacturing process. I quickly responded, "No son, you've just grown up so much they seem really tiny to you!" Okay so he didn't buy it, but he wasn't about to turn down ice cream in the afternoon. I have never been a big fan of the cone in fact i usually get my ice cream in a cup, but these taste different, better than regular cones, maybe baby cones are like baby spinach (more succulent and tender). So pick some up- 60 servings of summer smiles for $1.50- thats a bargain (and hey the portion size would make weight watchers proud!)

That is so fun! Is it still a weight watchers portion if you eat five of them?

Those are a favorite around here as well. My kids usually have 2 or 3 but at least it gives them time to eat the whole thing before they have melted all over the place.

Those are really cute. I hope they come in something other than chocolate! Wouldn't those be adorable for Scarlet's first birthday coming up! Wanna come to it? :)

aubrey- they are made by joy ice cream cones and called kids cones if that helps-- I love them!!

I gotta get the baby cones, they look so cute and I love that they will be devoured before they spill on clothes. What a genious idea!

Those are so cute! I am sure I could never eat just one, though. But, they would be perfect for my 3 yr old!
