If you don't know what the Rainbow Cone is, according to The Original Rainbow Cone website, they say...

"When Joe and his wife, Katherine, opened the first Rainbow Cone in 1926, their signature cone featured five delicious flavors. Chocolate, Strawberry, Palmer House, Pistachio, and Orange Sherbet were sliced (not scooped) into one smile-sparking cone. Little did Joe know, his creative combination of flavors would become a Chicago staple for decades and decades to come."

I lived in Chicago for years and let me tell you, the rainbow cone deserves a lot more respect for being a staple Chicago food item. So much love is given to the Deep-Dish Pizza, the Italian Beef Sandwich, the Chicago Style Hot Dog, and of course, Garretts Popcorn, but the Rainbow Cone belongs in that category. The next time you are headed to the Windy City make sure you stop by Original Rainbow Cone and taste the history for yourself!
