Extras: Keebler Waffles Bowls

As you may have noticed, I don't pay a ton of attention to the whole store-bought cone scene (as mentioned in the sugar cone disaster). Ice cream in a bowl is just easier, what can I say. Well, during grocery shopping last week, Keebler cones were all on sale. In particular, I noticed Waffle Bowls, and to be honest, I don't think I've noticed them until now. So, I picked up a set knowing my daughter would be a big fan.

Yesterday was a beautiful day and a perfect opportunity to open up the waffle bowls. This is when I learned something new. I've seen the chocolate coated waffle bowls at DQ, but I never really stopped to think how I would eat one. I was totally expecting my daughter to eat out the ice cream and then finish off the bowl. Well, I was a wrong. After just a few bites, she picked up the bowl and ate it like a giant ice cream cone. Hey, whatever works right?

We actually had waffle bowls again today, though the experience wasn't as gratifying. The bowl in the bottom of the package has broken from being moved around, and my first attempt to scoop into a bowl has left me with a handful of waffle pieces. These things are really quite fragile. The second try went better, though I was much more careful. I made myself one and ate it just like my daughter did yesterday. It worked pretty well actually, though the flavor of the bowl wasn't quite as satisfying as I had hoped, instead it was kind of bland.

funny, I just did a super quick google search a reviewer who thinks the Joy waffle bowls are much better, so if I see them at the store, I'll grab a pack and we'll do a comparison.

You raise an interesting question, Dubba. Why don't more people eat ice cream cones and waffle bowls at home?

By the way, great blog! It's always nice to see other ice cream bloggers out there. We've added a link to On Second Scoop to the blogroll on the Ice Cream Journal!
