Scoop School: Plugging Waffle Cone Holes

Posted by Destini Miller on

 Scoop School spills the beans on how to plug those wonky waffle cone holes. 
More often than not you're going to experience breakthroughs in your waffle cones (literally). Mr. C has given us a few methods for combating this issue.
Marshmallows make for a great plug because you can take one (or a couple), drop them on the bottom of the cone, and pour your ice cream on top. The soft mushiness of the marshmallow can absorb some of the ice cream and minimize leaks. You can do the same thing with a giant marshmallow, although this will limit the amount of space for ice cream.
Another good method that works for businesses is whopper chocolate candies. The dense chocolate balls work well with waffle cones because they're compact and fit directly in the bottom of the cone.
If you're not in the market to use chocolate whoppers, Hershey® kisses chocolate is another great alternative. Turn them upside-down and they fit perfectly into the center of the bottom. Plus, you get a delicious chocolate kiss at the end of your cone.
With all these methods its important to consider the product cost, and factor that in before committing to one of these methods for your store.
Another thing to consider is that if the leaking is happening on the sides of the cone than the safest bet is to put the waffle cone to better use. By breaking up the cone you can maximize its uses into complimentary treats for your guests or extra ingredients for your ice cream.
