Trivia and the Fair

Ice cream cone traces its origin to the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair.
Demand for the dessert was so high that an ice cream vendor ran out of dishes
in  which to serve it. So, he turned to a waffle-maker who  made cones from waffles to hold the scoops of ice cream.

It takes about 50  licks to finish a single -scoop ice cream cone.

The hot dog
for adults, the most popular hot dog topping is mustard.

For children, it is ketchup.

This is really good information to know. It is funny how they now give that waffle idea a new try and put all sorts of things inside of it.
