Eat with your Eyes: Marshmallow Cones

These are a fantastic idea. Miniature ice cream cones with a marshmallow candy topping.

Yeah, great idea but really not that good. They’re about three inches high and come individually wrapped in clear cellophane. I don’t know if it’s the packaging or the fact that a lot of egg white things smell kind of like wet dog to me, but they were icky.

  1. Ew, I remember those from when I was a kid - they were nasty then too.

  3. tastes change as we mature!  as a kid, I remember those cones, along with the flying saucer, sugar pearl filled, communion wafer tasting thingies and candy dots on paper to be just BEYOND compare in kid-dom.  Now I wouldn’t eat them for love or money, but the nostalgia they evoke is priceless, doncha’ think?

    victoria - First, I’ve noticed that candy eaters are able to use full words. While I’d like to say that it’s because we’re intelligent, I suspect it’s because we know that extra typing means extra calories burned.

    Second, thank you for your well reasoned criticism, however I might point out that merely being a candy eater does not make you fat. Studies have shown that a very small percentage of the calories in an average diet comes from candy. Intelligent people, even average people, understand that candy is not what makes people obese. Too many calories consumed and not enough expended makes people fat. (Sometimes this is caused by endocrine problems but usually just bad dietary budgeting.)

    I hope you’re able to find a blog you love. It’s a big internet, I know there’s a place for people like you.

  6. oh sheesh.  if only the internet was big enough that I could avoid seeing comments like that.  I hope one day, all internet activity has to be ID’d (no anonomity) so people will stop acting like trolls, bullies, and punks

    anyway, I also ate these as a kid.  I think I knew they tasted like plastic, but they were way to pretty for me to care!

  7. The ability to insult someone’s intelligence while maintaining a “friendly and encouraging” tone of voice is truly an under-appreciated art form. Kudos to you Cybele .... also, I disliked these cone guys when I was younger more because the cones were sort of chewy instead of crispy and fresh like real ice cream cones, the marshmallow parts must have been pretty enough to make up for their lack of good flavor

  8. I loved the marshmallow cones as a kid. The marshmallows were chewy. I buy marshmallows and dry them on yhe counter so they become chewy.
