Ice Cream Cones Cereal was made by General Mills and released in 1987. It consisted of puffs, sweetened with chocolate or vanilla ice cream flavor, as well as sugar cone-shaped pieces sweetened for the sugar cone flavor The cereal’s spokesperson was an animated character called Ice Cream Jones, who delivered the cereal on an old-fashioned pedal bike.
The cereal was discontinued the same year it was introduced (no idea why). It was shortly reintroduced in 2003 in a chocolate chip flavor to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ice cream cone, but sadly they dropped Ice Cream Jones as their spokesman.
You have to admire a cereal that drops all the pretense and gets to the core of what it is, a big bowl of sugar in milk. That is why I will always love Ice Cream Cones Cereal.
