4.  Ice Cream Cones

 

A popular alternative to fresh made ice cream cones are pre-packaged ice cream cone novelties that can be kept in a freezer that your customers can self-serve and pick out their favorite.  Pre-packaged ice cream cone novelties come in a variety of options.  One of the most popular pre-packaged ice cream cones comes with nuts as a topping.  You can also find ice cream novelty cones with crushed cookies as a topping, along with other options that are available from wholesalers.
