    Clone clones rule. I mean, I love those things! I get one every time I see the Cyclones playing at wonderful Hilton Coliseum. I would also go out and say that they are the best "dessert-treat" ever in all of sporting venues.


    Anyone agree?

    Also, what are some other top "goodie-getters" at other venues...
    aka "Fenway Frank." Bring 'em up!


    Random thread....boring Monday.

    The word "boss" is not used enough as an adjective. Ergo, the title of this thread is boss. :yes:

    Yeah, the walking taco is great too. Especially when we are beating Kansas. Stupid Jayhawks.

    My first Clone Cone was one of the worst experiences I've had in my 7 years in Ames. Okay, that's a little dramatic, but I was expecting something better than plain ol' vanilla after looking at the pretty colors.

    The walking tacos are awesome. I was quite disappointed none were being sold at the last wrestling meet.

    I'm also a big fan of the fresh-roasted peanuts. I don't know why, but salted-in-the-shells taste about a million times better when they're nice and warm.

    Haven't had one yet this year because those I've seen were way too soft. The swirl shapes weren't even waiting until people got to their seats to eat them. Are they any better now that it's December?

    Walking tacos are good, too. Usually my meal for an early afternoon game.

    Clone Cones are freaking awesome. Better than Dairy Queen. Kinda expensive, but they stack them up pretty high. I'd rather pay $3.50 for a Clone Cone than $4 for a bottle of water.

    Here's a good Clone Cone story:

    I was taking it easy in the upper deck of the student section a few years ago when, during a time out, they put Hiawatha Rutland up on the board. He was in the isle of the student section down close to the court, and had a big, fresh Clone Cone in his hand. He noticed himself on the video board, and started to do some sort of amusing dance...and all of a sudden the top ice cream part of the cone fell off and plopped to the ground. It was hilarious, though I'm sure Hiawatha didn't find it as funny.

    Season tickets for years.

    zero walking tacos consumed.

    I think after reading this thread I might need to change that.

    I'd like to see another Clone Cone stand or two added to keep the lines shorter. I would probably get two or three a game if I didn't have to wait in line so long. Add this to the Hilton renovations.

    I haven't had a Clone Cone yet this year. Don't get me wrong, I love them, but they really failed to impress me last year. I had several last season when the machine couldn't keep the ice cream cold enough and they couldn't serve cones, so they served them in a dish and it still melted and overflowed all over my hand before I got back to my seat. Dishes suck, I want a cone.

    Just another one of the billion reasons Hilton Coliseum basketball games are great.
