I am loving these patriotic snack cones from Crate & Barrel.  They’re meant for snowcones, but I plan to use them to serve all kinds of snacks (parmesan popcorn, spiced nuts, fruit, ice cream) during the summer.  At $6.95 per package (50), they’re an inexpensive, cute and a relatively eco-friendly way to serve snacks at a backyard BBQ, beach spread or picnic in the park.
