Who Invented the Ice Cream Cone?

Italo Marchiony invented the ice cream cone and got a patent in the late 1890's, however the ice cream cone was popularized at the St. Louis Fair in 1904. When an ice cream vendor ran out of paper cups and asked a nearby waffle booth to make some thin waffles he could roll up to hold the ice cream. This really caught on and cones that looked like wrapped waffles were created. Later sugar cones and other cones of various shapes started appearing on the market.

This became a popular fair food and just walking about food.

Did you know that the town of Carmel, California outlawed eating ice cream cones from their shopping village because they did not want a mess on their streets?
