LEIPZIG, GERMANY - MAY 26: A Gothic enthusiast takes a break with an ice cream cone during the annual Wave-Gotik-Treffen music festival on May 26, 2012 in Leipzig, Germany. The event began in the 1990s and has since grown into one of the biggest gatherings of Goth scene followers in Europe with around 20,000 participants. Many of those attending wear elaborate outfits and makeup which is a departure from the traditional black of the Goth scene. Punk remains a strong influence in today's Goth style as witnessed in Leipzig, but newer trends, with names like Cybergoth and Steampunk have emerged that blend bold colors with Victorian fashion elegance and 19th and 20th century fashion accessories into a look reminiscent of a mutated Venetian carnival. The five-day festival includes performances by around 200 bands. (Photo by Adam Berry/Getty Images)

Summertime is here. Ice cream will be consumed. So how will YOU be consuming your ice cream this summer?

 

Lucky for you, there’s only one correct answer for this particular 12 Inch Poll, and that is the tried-and-true sugar cone. Small enough to accommodate one scoop and still be aesthetically pleasing, sturdy enough to handle three scoops if you’re feeling frisky, and tasty enough to still be appetizing after you’ve killed off all that sweet, sweet ice cream.

 

Waffle cones? Unwieldy. And too often overdone, what with all the fudge-dipping and candy-rolling. Cake cones? Were it not for soft-serve, I’d call for their immediate banishment from the dairy realm. Structurally unsound with a taste like copy paper. Put cake cones where they belong: in the trash.

 

And speaking of trash, how do you sleep at night, eating your ice cream out of a dish? Where do you think all those styrofoam bowls and plastic spoons end up? In the landfill. Or–worse–in the damn ocean! Save the planet and order your ice cream in a cone, you scoundrel. And while you’re at it, cut down on napkin use and just lick your fingers clean. You animal.

 

End rant. Vote please. And gimme a scoop of coffee in a SUGAR cone, please. Thank you.
