Pretzel Cones

Have you ever had a pretzel cone?

They are all the rage around here{ok, maybe just with my family}and a lot of the local ice cream shops sell them.

There is something about the sweet ice cream with the salty pretzel cone that just takes your standard ice cream treat to the next level!

I have been eating pretzels with ice cream for years….. ever since I was a little kid.

My Dad came from a long line of ice cream addicts.
I can’t ever remember a time that we went to my grandparents house when they did not have at least two cartons of ice cream in the freezer…… it was always Hershey’s brand and always Vanilla and Chocolate. After dinner each night, my grandparents ate ice cream and my Nana would grab a bag of pretzles and dip them into her ice cream. I remember as a really young child thinking it was kind of strange……but she told me to try it, so I did……and I was INSTANTLY HOOKED!

A few years ago when they started making cones out of pretzels, I was in HEAVEN.
Whenever we take the kids out for ice cream, no matter what flavor I choose,(my favorite is rainbow sherbert)it is always in a pretzel cone…….. so recently, Sarah decided to try it and now she is hooked too!

Last Saturday I took the girls to the Rose Gardens to do another commercial photo shoot for Izzy and Ivy Designs{photos will be coming soon along with an Izzy and Ivy Giveaway that you WILL NOT want to miss} and it was BLAZING HOT….so I promised pretzel cones filled with their favorite ice cream as soon as we were done!

Sarah Eaating Ice Cream Collage
Sarah’s flavor of choice these days is Mint Chocolate Chip.
The ice cream was melting faster than Sarah could eat it…..and I have learned this the hard way, so I always ask them to flip the cone upsidedown and put it in a cup. This is a big help….and not nearly as messy…… although Sarah did manage to get some on her nose:)
Reagan Eating Ice Cream Collage
This was Reagan’s first taste of a pretzel cone……and did she ever LOVE IT!
I bought hers thinking we would “share” it…..OH NO, she was not having that at all.
I was trying to feed her and she kept turning her head away, so I thought she didn’t like it……but then I could tell she was getting really irritated with me and I realized that she didn’t want me to feed her, nor did she want to share the ice cream me.

She wanted the cup placed directly in front of her at the table and she wanted to spoon it into her mouth and eat it out of the cone all by herself.
She won the battle very quickly……
I knew I had an abundance of baby wipes in my big bag, so I just let her go at it and figured I would deal with the mess later.

Well, she was certainly messy, but the smile plastered on her face was worth it…… she ate every last bite of that cone. She is unbelieavable….. I have never seen a child eat with so much “gusto”. She truly enjoys her food!

So, do you all have pretzel cones where you live? or is this just an East Coast/Pennsylvania thing?
You have to try it if you can get them……. I promise, you will not be disappointed!

  • jade - Dear Lisa, those pictures are just adorable (as always). Since the very beginning of your adventure with Reagan, I am always impressed by how much she resembles my daughter: even personality wise! Your story of her insisting on eating ALL and HERSELF, well, this is so familiar! But unfortunately we do not have pretzel cones, and I’m not sure we’re getting them soon over here either…
    Kind regards from chilly Belgium, Jade
