I credit my daughter Laura with the idea of the twist cone for the weekly challenge.
I credit Steve with taking me to the Twisters Ice Cream on Main Street in Bloomfield, a little hole in the wall place with service at the window- only! As he waited in the car, I got out to order.
I credit the woman who made the medium size twist cone for me, who was gracious to hold it while I took an iPhone photo of it along with the logo on her T-shirt. I told her the word of the week was TWISTED.
And I give much credit to the few people who had to be patient to order their cones, splits and shakes, who waited while I took a few extra seconds to take my shot,

Flavor Preferences. What do you like to taste? Is there a flavor you avoid or don’t like?
Is there a difference between a flavor and a taste?
Where do our preferences come from?
Who are the flavorists who add the flavors to what we consume? I’m not even getting into natural vs. artificial flavors.
People within the same family prefer different flavors. How they taste.
Some individuals detest licorice. Others love it. Cilantro? Spices? Peppermint?
If a family gets ice cream cones does everyone choose the same flavor?
Varieties of flavored waters, drinks and seltzers are big sellers.
Wikipedia -“Of the three chemical senses, smell is the main determinant of a food item’s flavor. Five basic tastes – sweet, sour, bitter, salty and umami (savory) are universally recognized”
I regret not purchasing this particular drink flavor- I’d really like to taste it (seen at Thanksgiving where sold at the Gourmet Garage NYC). Seeing the photo in my phone reminded me I didn’t taste it. Thinking about rhubarb makes me salivate a bit(yep, I said that). My mouth water. I like rhubarb. The tartness. Next trip, I’m buying it!
I’m sure there are people who don’t like Vanilla. Chocolate. Strawberry. Garlic, Ginger. Cinnamon.

Anise or vanilla? They are delicate and delicious.

Wider, thicker, fatter, heavier would be better-it was so good.
Desired characteristics for the narrow ice cream sandwich, not me!
Guess that’s why they keep the amount of ice cream slim.
