One of the hallmarks of a Strickland's ice cream cone is its unique, "stretched" appearance. The stretched cone is facilitated by the antique ice cream dippers used in the store for generations. Unlike the traditional round dipper that produces a bland ball of ice cream, our antique dippers are conical in shape, and lend themselves to the unique presentation that says, "This is a Strickland's cone."
Since the conical dipper is no longer commercially available, Strickland's has commissioned its own conical dipper, so that all Strickland's stores can produce the trademark Strickland's cone. In addition to its unique appearance, some of our staff believe that the shape of the stretched cone keeps the ice cream colder, longer - enhancing the customer's experience.
