gluten-free ice cream cones

gluten-free ice cream cones

On the last day of our honeymoon in Italy, the Chef and I stopped for one more gelato in Rome. After savoring every bite of that pistachio in a cone, I looked at the countertop and stopped breathing for a moment. "Il Cono per Tutti" — a cone for all. A gluten-free ice cream cone, in a gelato place, in Rome.

I ordered another gelato, just to have the experience.

And when we left, I thought, "Of course, I'm only going to find something like that in Italy."

So, imagine my surprise last weekend, when I stood in a dinky grocery store in Burien (a city just south of Seattle), looked at the shelves, and stopped breathing for a moment. "Gluten-free ice cream cones?!" I shouted out to the Chef. I grabbed one immediately.

We were waiting, in that store near the airport, for the Chef's brother, who was stocking up on groceries for his trip to Whistler. We had never been in that store. We might never have seen these.

A few nights later, I had the chance to try one. The Chef and I curled up on the couch to watch a movie, and I had the sudden urging for an ice cream cone. Not expecting much, I crunched down on the shell after licking around the vanilla.

"Oh good god," I blurted out.

"What?" the Chef worried.

"This ice cream cone. It actually tastes good."

After watching me exclaim about the sweetness from the demerara sugar (no high fructose corn syrup), the way the cone didn't shatter at the slightest touch, and the joys of eating an ice cream cone again, for the first time in years, the Chef sat up and walked to the kitchen.

"Where are you going?" I asked him.

"I can't stand it any longer. I have to have an ice cream cone too."

He has pronounced them delicious, much better than the tasteless cones we all ate as kids. (Think scary clown on the box.) These taste like real food.

I never did have an ice cream craving while I was pregnant. But thanks to these cones, I have one now.


These are new to the market, produced by Edward and Sons Trading Company. I hear they're soon to be available widely, but I can't promise where you'll find them. Ask around. They're worth the search. It seems the Gluten-Free Trading Company has some available online right now.

In Pasadena, CA, you can find them at both Whole Foods stores. We bought our first box about 3 moths ago and were absolutely amazed at how good they were, just like how you remember them. My son and daughter got to have their first ice cream cone ever; made me teary-eyed!

How about a recipe to use for a pizzelle maker?

I just purchased these a few days ago hoping they are as good as my other favorites. I have been eating Cerrone Cones (GF Waffle cones), which are wonderful. I found them at a local natural foods store in the Twin Cities with a huge selection of GF foods. You can buy the Cerrone Cone online here (http://www.glutenfree.com/Cerrone-Waffle-Cones/Item952001).

Happy eating!

my son is having his third birthday next weekend and i have been planning on splurging on the GF waffle cones i have always avoided buying- so $$$! he will have his first ice cream cone ever and i am tearing up thinking about it!
granted, he has to have dairy free ice cream in his gluten free waffle cone, but he will still be happy as can be.

The Cerrone waffle cones are good but I prefer the new let's do gluten free brand. I used them to bake cupcakes in last month since that is something I have always wanted to try. Can I just say "yuh-um!" The best is homemade cookies and cream ice cream made with kinnitoos chocolate sandwhich cookies nestled in one of these yummy let's do gluten free cones. I'm certainly not suffering from gluten free deprivation here!

I always thought of Italians as subsisting on [wheat] pasta, but it turns out that Italy has a high occurance of Celiac disease. By law, every child is tested by the age of 1 for gluten intolerance. "Aha," I remember thinking when I learned that, "THAT explains why all my favorite gluten-free pastas come from Italy," a fact which made no sense before.

Hay-on-Wye in Wales has one of the best icecream places in the world, called Shepherds where they make ewe's milk icecream and they will serve it in a gluten free cone. Hay is a really beautiful place, full of bookshops, boutiques in a lovely setting. http://www.shepherdsicecream.co.uk/ is the icecream!!

I ran across these in a grocery store in Solon, Ohio just last weekend.

Easily one of the most exciting events of the month!

I agree, they're the best!

I think I like the GF cake cones better than the sugar cones, which is odd for me. I like the way the ice cream melts slightly into the cone.

These are SOOOO good. I agree that they actually do taste better than the ones that I used to eat that are full of gluten. These actually have a FLAVOR. amazing. :) I found mine at Gluten Free Trading Post, but I've also seen them at Whole Foods recently.

We have these in seacoast NH at a great independent grocery store called 'Philbricks'. During my pregnancy I craved ice cream like crazy, and these brought my indulgences to a whole new level. Absolutely fantastic!
