Inventors of the original Hamburger
Charles and Frank Menches, foodies before their time, also invented the waffle cone. At the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, Frank & Charles baked waffles in Parisian waffle irons. They then had an idea to wrap the warm waffle around a fid, a cone-shaped splicing tool for tent ropes. The waffle cooled and held its shape to provide an edible handle for eating ice cream. Returning home, the the Menches brothers began production of "premium" cones and launched their own business called Premium Ice Cream Cone and Candy Company in Akron, Ohio.
