The other day we were sent some gluten-free items in a care package, which was very much appreciated. In the package were some gluten-free ice cream cones. The cones are made by Barkat. I have never eaten anything made from this company, but they looked good. Let me start this out by saying that I was never a huge ice cream cone fan before I went gluten-free, so I may not be the best judge for these. If I ate cones before, they were always the sugar cones or the homemade waffle cones, the ginormous ones you get at Cold Stone Creamery or TCBY. Jon, my GF child, did not care for the cones. I don’t know that he had ever eaten a cone before going GF, so he may not be the best judge either. Hannah, my non-GF child, LOVED these cones. She devoured her cone with Edy’s Slow-Churned Peanut Butter Cup ice cream on top. She is 6 years old and very picky, so that has got to stand for something. I tasted the cone, but wasn’t impressed. It tasted like a cake ice cream cone, you know the ones you feed goats out of at the zoo? I am not saying that in a bad way at all, if you like those cones, you will like these, a lot. Hannah begged for another, but I had to put my foot down and make her wait until tomorrow. The downside to these (as is probably to all ice cream cones, gluten-free or not) is that they crumble/crack easily.
Hannah ate hers so fast that I didn’t get a picture of her eating the cone, just the box they came in!
