    Clone Cones...I've Had Enough!!

    There needs to be an intervention...the last few Clone Cones I've had have been terrible (by clone cone standards, which is still terribly delicious). I'm not sure if the workers there have ever made ice cream cones before in their lives. The guy who made mine at the Baylor game had the cone about a foot underneath the "spout" and then just kind of dumped the unsteady cone into a bowl. And it was all cardinal, no gold. Come on, concession workers, learn how to make an ice cream cone!!

    For $4 all I want is some properly frozen ice cream, in a cone, that is red and yellow. Go Cyclones!

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I'm with you, Spartacus. You had me at "all I want is some properly frozen ice cream, in a cone, that is red and yellow."

    The concessions are being run by a different company this year... it might be worth sending an e-mail to voice your complaints, before they get too set in their ways.

    They put too much red dye in the mixture nowadays which makes it harder for the ice cream to be properly frozen.

    This is where the athletic department directed me to send a complaint:

    https://www.levyrestaurants.com/publ...contactus.aspx

    Send an email to Nick Britton at Hilton Coliseum too:

    nbritton@iastate.edu

    Re: Clone Cones...I've Had Enough!!

    This is almost as outrageous as the great "Nachos With No Jalapenos" debacle of 2010. I am outraged by the lack of proper ice cream education these workers have and feel that this great injustice should be taken to the highest authority.

    You sir are a champion among men for bringing this to light for the masses. I commend you for your bravery and pray that you will overcome this situation. Godspeed and Godbless on your upcoming journey.

    Yeah, it's another good way to support ISU athletics, since they get a cut of the revenue. They'd get a lot more if they hired a company who served quality food, regardless of price.
