Is this the Biggest Ice Cream Cone in New York?
You're gonna need a bigger cone. An upstate New York business has local residents' cravings (and blood sugar) skyrocketing, and it all has to do with one of the biggest ice cream cones in existence.
It's a cone that truly has to be seen to be believed. The photo (below) shows the "large" soft serve twist that is quite literally longer (and thicker) than the employee's forearm. The good news is that it's only a short drive from the Hudson Valley to get your (two) hands on this enormous treat.
