Growing up in and around Philadelphia, many locals’ first recollection of eating ice cream includes dipping crispy pretzels into a favorite flavor, devouring the pair and picking up another pretzel to start again! Pretzels bring out the best in any kind of ice cream…the blend just goes well together.
Eating pretzels with ice cream was just a part of growing up for our original pretzLcone inventor, and The Cone Guys founder, Ian Cooper. If you were having ice cream, you had to have pretzels. And if you were eating pretzels, you needed ice cream.
Cooper, like a lot of other children, was always thinking how great it would be to have cones made out of pretzels. It seemed to make sense. “When I grow up,” he promised himself, “I’m going to invent a pretzel cone.” In 1986, he fulfilled his childhood pledge. Cooper sold his dental supply business and invented the pretzel cone, just as he said he would.
This Pennsylvania Dutch tradition was the inspiration for developing an ice cream cone made from pretzels. Today, many years later, Cone Guys offers four flavors of gourmet cones.
- All baked with the finest ingredients
- Superior quality and taste to all other ice cream cones
- The homemade dough recipe produces a solid cone which holds ice cream securely inside.
- Enjoy the best of both worlds, a cookie or a pretzel and ice cream!
