the best ice cream cones: Trader Joe's old fashioned waffle cones

One of my favorite scents is the boardwalk-any boardwalk really, Cape Cod, New Jersey, the Boardwalk at Walt Disney World. . . There is something about the scent of waffle cones, that heady warm vanilla smell that just makes me so happy. Last week, just in time for National Ice Cream Day, I found these new Old Fashioned Waffle Cones at Trader Joe's.

Yesterday, after a hot day playing and swimming, L, Waverly and I had hot dogs and corn on the cob  for dinner with ice cream cones for dessert. Several times, when we were shopping in Trader Joe's on Friday, Waverly reached back from the cart seat and tossed the waffle cones box on the floor so I  didn't have high hopes for these cones being in one piece but they were packed so well in their styrofoam nest that none of the cones were broken.   When I opened the box, there it was, that scent-that familiar vanilla with a hint of orange smell that reminds you of days on the beach or at the fair, days when you were with your favorite people being silly and wishing it was always summer.

Trader Joe's chocolate ice cream is our favorite chocolate ice cream and it paired perfectly with the waffle cone, which honestly has the crunch and taste of waffle cones that just came off the waffle maker.

These are now our house brand of cones. Later this week I'm going to try making peach ice cream with the peaches I bought at the farmer's market on Saturday morning. I think these cones will be a perfect base for the summery sweetness of ripe peaches and cream.

Trader Joe's Old Fashioned Waffle Cones are $2.49 for 12 cones.
