The past few years have been ramping up to a creative-cone explosion, and we’re going to declare that it’s finally here. Check out a few of the different types of ice cream cones we’ve seen this summer.
Some brightly colored cones
You’ve got to match your ice cream to your cone to your nails. We recommend choosing your flavors from The Konery in advance so that you can plan your manicure accordingly.
And some “goth” cones
Several places are doing charcoal-colored cones; the ones from Little Damage may just be our favorite.
You can try a pretzel cone
Like this one from Ample Hills Creamery.
Or a “taco shell”
It’s basically a waffle cone in a different shape. These ones are from the brand-new Roll Up Creamery & Café.
This creation from 10 Below Ice Cream manages to resemble both a taco and a burrito simultaneously.
Or a churro cone
Or a Hong-Kong-style egg waffle
We adore the over-the-top offerings from Wowfulls.
And from Eggloo.
And this gorgeous creation from The Dessert Kitchen.
A watermelon slice instead of a cone

Or a cupcake instead of a cone
Or puff pastry instead of a cone
Like this matcha-taro swirl at Besfren.
This one’s bear-y good
Recess Ice & Desserts is making bear cones and they’re adorable.
It’s…both a fish and a…unicorn?
These cones from Taiyaki NYC are a little confusing, but we’d still eat ’em.
