The History of the Ice Cream Cone


In 1904 at the St. Louis World’s Fair more than fifty vendors had ice cream stands and the edible ice cream holder, the cone, made its debut.  Up until then paper and metal cones were being used throughout Europe.  It is not known who actually created the first edible cone and is believed that multiple people may have created it all around the same time during the World’s Fair.  Since there were many waffle stands at the Fair as well it is believed that several vendors would roll the waffles and use to hold the ice cream.

Abe Doumar is credited for building one of the first cone makers by adapting a waffle iron into a cone oven.
