Joy Cone Company offers the best tasting cone on the market today. Joy Cone uses three flours in the baking process; pastry, cake, and tapioca. This blend of flours is similar to a cake flour. There is more sugar in our cones when compared to some of our competitors. This combination produces a lighter, flakier cone with a much better taste than other products. To really appreciate the difference you need to taste the product and compare it to what you are using now. If you would like some samples or more information, click here.
The taste of a cone is very important because when a person eats a cone, the cone is the last thing they taste. If it is too sweet, it will compete with the ice cream. If it is too bland, it leaves a "cardboard" aftertaste in the mouth. It is not uncommon to see people eat the ice cream off the top and discard competitive cones in the trash. If you see this, you can rest assured that the customer did not enjoy the treat. People will argue that no one comes in and asks "What cone are you using?" and then not order a cone based on the brand. However, if the cone does not taste good, it will reflect negatively on the treat. Using their own argument, we challenge them as to whether the unsatisfied customer will think the cone was bad or the whole treat? The next question is, "Will they buy another?"
The code numbers used by Joy Cone in designating their cups make some sense. Other companies´ numbers jump all around and have very little meaning in relation to size. The lowest Joy Cone number is the smallest cup (#10) and the largest number is the largest cup (#80), with the other numbers falling between these two.
Joy Cone cups are built for portion control and appearance. Extra, higher cross ribs in the bottom of the cup reduces the amount of soft serve inside the cone. This pushes the product to the top, enhancing the appearance of the product. Portion control varies from cone to cone and competitor to competitor.
