Ice creams Ice-cream cone's 100-years-old

The ice-cream cone celebrated its 100th birthday in 2004 and its shape has not changed much over the past century.

This is because the cone is a very environmentally friendly form of packaging.

There is no waste because you eat the container.

Also, ice-cream sellers can stack the cones a hundred high so they don't take up much space.

Even the chocolate bit at the bottom is more than a nice treat. It stops the wafer becoming soggy and dropping off.
