There are days throughout the year to celebrate ice cream and even individual ice cream flavors. Today it is all about the cone.
The common belief is the Charles E. Minches of Saint Louis, Missouri invented the ice cream cone on this day at the World’s Fair in Saint Louis.
Later it was discovered that Italo Marchiony of New York City had filed a patent for the ice cream cone months before the World’s Fair opened.
Whomever deserves the credit, we thank them. Celebrate the day by grabbing a cone filled with your favorite flavor of ice cream.
