Celebrate National Ice Cream Cone Day September 22 at Praline’s Own Made

Ice cream is a well-known treat most that just about everyone enjoys eating. It’s been around since about the 1600s and with the vast array of flavors and textures available today, the joy this sweet treat brings is something most people can relate to.

Over the years, ice cream went from a delicacy only royalty enjoyed, to a dessert anyone could purchase in a box at their grocery store freezer aisle. Served in a bowl and eaten with a spoon, or shaped as a figure that you lick off of a stick, there are lots of different ways to enjoy ice cream.

One way that’s extra delicious is using a cone. These cookie-like wafers keep your hands clean, allow you to enjoy ice cream on the go, and give you an extra something sweet to eat together with your ice cream.

From waffle, to wafer, or sugar and the contents inside can be customized and selected personally based on each individual eaters taste buds.

On September 22 we celebrate these delicious confections on National Ice Cream Cone Day.

Head over to the closest Praline’s Own Made to celebrate the occasion with a cone filled with your favorite flavors. Choices include original Praline’s Own Made flavors, seasonal options, yogurts and even non-fat and no sugar options. There’s something for everyone!

National Stepfamily Day highlights the importance of the bonds and relationships these families share. While there are sometimes hurdles faced by families where divorce and new sibling assimilation must occur, there are also great bonds and victories to be celebrated—and that is what this day recognizes.

What better way to celebrate such an important family day than going out for ice cream? Continue reading
