Best Waffle Cone: America's Choice Waffle Cones

A generously-sized take on the classic waffle cone, this one is crunchy and toasted to perfection. It would pair best with a heavy, textured ice cream, like our fig variation. _America's Choice Waffle Cones, $2.49 at A&PAnna Stockwell

Best Specialty Cone: Nabisco Oreo Cones

While not an exact replica of its cookie counterpart, this Oreo cone lends the right amount of chocolaty-goodness to rich, chocolate ice cream. Try it with Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams Darkest Chocolate Ice Cream in the World. Nabisco Oreo Cones, at your local supermarket.Anna Stockwell

Light and airy, this cone offers the perfect amount of delicious support without weighing you down with bulk. It matches well with an equally airy scoop, like our Pepperment Pillow Ice Cream. Let's Do...Organic Ice Cream Cones, $3.29 at [Whole FoodsAnna Stockwell

Best Sugar Cone: Nabisco, Comet Sugar Cones

Small yet sturdy, and faintly sweet, this cone is perfect for less sugary desserts like our Basil Gelato. Comet Sugar Cones, at your local supermarket.Anna Stockwell
