At the 1904 World’s Fair, an ice cream maker ran out of bowls. He asked a nearby waffle vendor to roll waffles into cones, turning them into finger food.
In 1928 the Parker Brothers (Bruce and twins I.C. and J.T. “Stubby”) took this great invention even further by adding chocolate coating topped with nuts. One of the brothers’ wives said it looked like a fried chicken leg, thus the “Drumstick” was born! With that, DRUMSTICK ® became THE ORIGINAL SUNDAE CONE®.
Today NESTLE ® DRUMSTICK ® is Americas #1 sundae cone!
