Melting Ice Cream Cones

Have you ever heard of the ice cream that never melts in the sun? It's a wonderful little section in the Roald Dahl story of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. If only it were true in real life!

As this photograph demonstrates, if it's a warm, sunny day, ice cream might seem very appealing BUT you have to eat it quickly! My family were all shouting 'Quick before it all melts!" over my shoulder as I took this photograph. Needless to say once the camera was put away, these ice cream cones didn't have much longevity :-)

The ice cream cone has a fascinating history going back to the beginning of the 20th century. If this interests you, then you can delve further into the world of the ice cream cone by reading about the ice cream poke.
