The Froyo in a Cup vs. Cone Debate

Fro-yo girl here. Most of the froyo that I get comes in a cup but I do enjoy the occasional froyo cone. Not that many froyo shops offer froyo cones since the majority are self-serve, charge by the ounce places now. However, even some self-serve shops offer cones (normally they charge a flat rate for cones).

When it comes to the cup vs. cone debate, cups are clearly superior for adults unless the cones are freshly made and high quality. Cones have a lot of disadvantages. Cups have many advantages.

  • Advantages of cones: Fun/kid-friendly, edible, crunchy, no waste/eco-friendly, look better in pictures
  • Disadvantages of cones: Can drip and get messy, can be stale, extra calories, little room for toppings, scoops can fall off when you lick them, can cost extra
  • Advantages of cups: Easy to carry around, clean, can have nice design, no calories, can be eco-friendly, can accommodate lids, room for toppings
  • Disadvantages of cups: Can be plain-looking, can hide a lot of the swirl
Which do you prefer?

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
