Ube is also known as taro. I've had a Filipino Nestle-brand taro ice cream from an Asian supermartket Taro ice cream is delish!

purple ice cream is called ube [a kind of yam]. really good. maybe mitchell's ice cream of california sells it.

I believe the whole point of this contraption is for those who prefer the long lick technique that the exposed surface area provides. Not the same with a spoon. Nope, just not the same!

Yes, Flautist. Also think about the challenges of holding onto a smooth conical object when it's wet with melted ice cream and kid slobber. ZOOP!! Out of the hand and onto the ground/floor/carpet/upholstery. Much crying and swearing to follow.

Yuck! I love eating the cone. What's next? Plastic ice cream?!

Nah -- some nut will think it's okay to try to stick one of these over a cat's face. So: kid's unicorn costume for Halloween.

What Al and clifyt said, exactly.

This is an outrage! The blend of creamy and crisp is one of the great breakthroughs of the 20th (19th?) century, up there with the heart-lung machine and Liquid Prell. (That's not original with me; see Mel Brooks' 2013 Year Old Man.) Why, this is nothing but ice cream in a pointy cup that you can't set down while the runoff doesn't soak into the spongy cone. No, it just runs down the hydrophobic plastic all over your hand. Instant toddler. I'd feel gypped, used, frustrated -- unconsummated, if you will -- if I had ice cream in such a vessel thrust upon me.

Other uses: muzzles for cats; napkin holders; devil horns; w/ points cut off, tiny megaphones

WTH?!?!?

The cone is most definitely the best part of ice cream. Unless you are talking real irish cream ice cream...not the fake flavored stuff (got to get an ice cream maker again to make my own...)

That has all the appeal of reusable hamburger buns. If you're not going to eat the cone (which is part of the flavor experience) you might as well eat it from a cup.
