When I was a kid, long before my vegan days, I was a big fan of Drumsticks. Don't remember those? They're the ice cream cones with the hardened chocolate shell, covered in peanuts. At the tip of the rubbery waffle cone was pure chocolate. This was my favorite summertime treat.
When I saw these Tofutti Yours Truly cones at the supermarket, it brought me back to those summer days in Connecticut, sitting on the patio with my feet in the pool, sitting in the sun, trying to finish a Drumstick before it melted all over my swimsuit (as if I really cared!).
Sadly, Yours Truly cones don't have any peanuts, which is almost a deal breaker for me. Still, being back in Florida has me craving frozen treats again, so I looked passed these nut-less cones and gave them a try.
The cookie topping is deliciously chocolatey, but this is a messy shell. I recommend eating this over the sink (if you're a classy dame, such as myself). Otherwise, be prepared for little pieces to fall all over the place and melt almost instantaneously.
The ice cream is a yummy, sweet vanilla. Semi-related question: Are you one of those people who can BITE into ice cream? I cringe just thinking about that. My teeth are too sensitive and the idea of sinking my teeth into some ic... I can't even finish that sentence.
I got a great kick out of the cone because it had that familiar rubbery texture that I remember from my Drumstick days. And, I was happy to find a chunk of chocolate in the cone's tip!
In conclusion, Tofutti Yours Truly cones are a fun, messy treat, that would be made so much better with the addition of nuts.
