When summertime comes around, most of us dream of ice cream cones. But some people have taken that dream in a new and unexpected direction.

The latest fad – coffee in a cone.

Coffee – the liquid, not an ice cream flavor – is put in an ice cream cone lined with chocolate.

It’s a big hit on social media. Nearly 1 million images have used the hashtag #coffeeinacone since January.

The success is coming from a barista in South Africa with a knack for social media. He’s even employed someone to man the WhatsApp line for take out and delivery orders.

We just don’t recommend wearing your Sunday-finest while sipping/nibbling your coffee in a cone.
