The Legend of the Donut Ice Cream Cone
Remember when everyone on the internet was obsessed with “donut ice cream cones”? What ever happened to that? Can such ice cream cones be obtained? Why aren’t we eating them right now? And why hasn’t anyone thought of putting donuts and ice cream, two undoubtedly good things, together before?
The actual thing you see in those internet posts is actually neither a donut nor brand new. Those cones are a kind of traditional Czech pastry called trdelník (pronounced like “turtleneck”): thin strips of dense, bready dough wound them around a metal cylinder, roasted over coals, and dusted with cinnamon and sugar. Delicious, but a lot denser and sturdier than a donut. And Good Food Bakery as well as other places around Prague have been offering then since at least last summer.
