Food Porn Friday: Beyond the Sugar Cone

Posted in: Awesome, Food

Is it possible to make something truly wonderful (and fattening) even more wonderful (and also more fattening)? Of course. This is America, damn it. Where we don’t take “no” or “that’s irresponsible from a dietary standpoint” for an answer. Where we take our dessert with an extra side of dessert.

Behold:

Somewhere, someone is starving to death. </seriousness>

These are the cones that Rand and I spotted at an ice cream shop in Pennsylvania that was graciously named “Pigadilly’s“.  If the extra $1.50 price tag looks a little steep, remember: innovation and genius do not come cheap. You aren’t just paying for a cone – you are investing in what makes American great.

And also investing in what makes America fat. But let’s focus on the great part.

  • Ho-lee-shit. That is awesome. Genius. Disgusting, but something I totally want to try!

  • Chrissy

    They don’t have pretzel and m&m cones on the west coast?? I thought that was a common thing. My favorite ice cream place in New Jersey has chocolate chip cookie cones…so good. I think you need to spread the word!

    Side note: Isn’t Peddler’s Village just the cutest little town?

  • Gourmet junk food! It does sound a lot better than a deep fried Hostess Twinkie :0) Thank goodness I think Twinkies are disgusting. Those cones, on the other hand, …

  • Strange I have never even heard of this place (or brown betty that you had mentioned previously) after spending so many years in PA and the Philly suburb area. I guess visitors to places always manage to see more than those who live there.

  • Next time your East you’ll have to try a little further North in Kent CT. Ridiculously cute little town with a Belgian chocolate place (http://belgiqueonline.com/). Try the hot chocolate which is like mainlining a chocolate bar! My girls were comatose, unable to speak for some time after that

  • Melanie

    I want an m&m cone immediately.

    • Everywhereist

      Me, too. But I keep snapping my fingers and one does NOT magically appear. What the heck? It’s like I sold my soul to Satan for NOTHING.

    I don’t think you were the mastermind behind this, but you definitely should have been: http://camillestyles.com/2012/science-lessons/

  • Pretzel cone? M&M CONE? Shut the front door.

    On a semi-related note, I went to brunch in Nashville the other day at a restaurant with a RED VELVET WAFFLE WITH CREAM CHEESE DRIZZLE and will be returning promptly because I didn’t have the stomach capacity (or never) to also order the pretzel pancakes with chocolate mousse and dulce de leche.

  • Carly

    I never mind paying a tiny bit more for innovative and exciting food! I definitely think a good food experience is just that – an experience. It doesn’t matter how good the food is if it looks bad or is just plain boring.

    Thanks for sharing! Now I want to go find new and exciting delicacies!

  • Joy

    Wait, hold the phone?!?!? This isn’t a world-wide phenomenon!?!? I’ve been eating pretzel cones my whole life. They taste particularly awesome with chocolate peanut butter ice cream.
