Lyons Maid's answer to Cornettos - a prepackaged biscuit cone full of ice-cream, available in chocolate, strawberry, nut and so on. They were available in the late 70s and cost a fortune. They had far groovier adverts than Walls's O Sole Mio affaris. 'Lick me, bite me, anywhere you like me, As long as you love me, it's all right' everyone would sing.

And we tried them, and they were okay. But they were only 'okay'. And then we stopped trying them and gave our affection wholeheartedly to Cornettos - until Haagen Daaz came along, that is. Cornettos are still available. King Cones are no more.
