An ice cream cone with only 70 calories? Oh, yes. It's small, you say? Well, yes, indeed it is small in stature. But flavor? Big. Oh, yes. Trader Joe's Hold the Cone! Mini Ice Cream Cones are big on flavor. Each easy-to-hold wafer cone (nifty how we incorporated this practical information into the name, don't you think?) is filled with rich, creamy, ice cream - ice cream, we hasten to add, that's significantly richer and creamier than what you'll find in other cones - dipped in a rich, chocolaty coating. They're simple, for sure; and oh-so wonderfully satisfying.
Hold the Cone! Mini Ice Cream Cones took our freezer cases by storm about three years ago. Since then, we've sold enough of them to fill the most giant ice cream cone you could possibly imagine anyone every creating - trust us; this would be a lot of Hold the Cones. Why have they been so successful? We can think of a few reasons. These little funnel-shaped treats are rich, delicious, and immediately satisfying. That they have a mere 70 calories each is icing on the cake. That each 5.9 ounce box of eight cones can be yours for $2.99 is cause for celebration. We'll bring the Vanilla Hold the Cone! Mini Ice Cream Cones!
