Who wants a fish-shaped ice cream cone?

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on September 29th, 2016

For the most part, the traditional ice cream cone shape has remained relatively unchanged since its invention at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis. But an ice cream shop in Berkeley, CA called Uji Time has created the fish-shaped ice cream cone you see above.

Here’s the catch: The shop only creates 15 of the cones each day, mainly because each cone takes 30 minutes to make!

To get one, you pretty much have to show up when the shop opens (3 PM on weekdays and 1 PM on the weekends) and then fill your fishy cone with the ice cream flavor of your choice.

But wait! If you can’t make it out to the San Francisco area to get a cone for yourself, a New York City ice cream shop called Taiyaki NYC has created a similar cone that’s taking social media by storm. The cones (that’s them below) cost $7 each and the lines are long, but judging by how adorable the cones are, we think they’re worth the wait, don’t you?
