WHO SCOOPED THE FIRST ICE-CREAM CONE?
(abstracted from NATGEOMAG)

Most Ice Cream cones end the same way, melting sweetly on the tongue. BUT HOW DID THE FIRST ICE CREAM CONE BEGIN?Tales of the cone's invention converge one spot: the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, Missouri. In one story, an ice cream vendor ran out of serving dishes and was rescued by Ernest Hamwi, a Syrian immigrant selling Middle Eastern waffles at the next stand.

Yet a third claimant was former circus acrobat Charles Menches, who is said to have peeld away one side of an ice cream sandwich to amke an improvised vase for flowers, then molded the other side to hold the remaining ice cream. Hamwi and Menches went on to create an ice cream cone empires.

One earlier claim gets lost in the hubbub: five months before the World's Fair, a patent was awarded to candymaker Italo Marchiony: "I calim as my invention ...a molding apparatus for creating ice cram cups and the like".
