In 1928, I.C. Parker, a manager at a Ft. Worth, Texas candy company, had the idea of coating an ice cream cone with chocolate and peanuts. His wife, Jewel, thought it looked like a fried chicken leg, so he called it a “Drumstick.”
Through the years, innovations were made—the chocolatey lining in the cone, for instance, and the chocolatey surprise in the bottom. Today, you can find NESTLÉ® DRUMSTICK® Sundae Cones in three different sizes, multiple flavors, and with or without nuts.
