A story goes that the ice cream cone was invented at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904 when an ice cream vendor’s product was so popular that he ran out of bowls. No bowls, no way to provide his confection to customers. In the next stall, Ernest A. Hamwi was selling tartlets similar to waffles. He realized he could shape one of his pastries into a cone and use it as an edible bowl for his colleague’s ice cream. Thanks to this chance collaboration, Hamwi could sell his waffles, the ice cream vendor could continue meeting a consumer need on a hot day at the fair, and one of America’s favorite summertime treats was born.
