Want a child-size cone that is actually the size of a child? Head over to the newly opened Nelson’s Ice Cream shop at 454 Snelling Ave. S., in St. Paul, where the flavors are many, the lines move swiftly, and the child size cones ($3.50 for two flavors, or $4.50 for the waffle cone version) will make your kid's eyes pop out.
Bring cash, be sure to grab lots of napkins, and be ready to plop the leftovers in a cup for later. Here, Iris Eason of St. Paul would give her cookies-and-cream/cookie dough waffle cone two thumbs up if she didn't need both thumbs to manage it.
