Did You Know This Festival Favorite Was Invented in Shreveport?
Oh, the sweet joy of a WonderStick. A delightful Shreveport way to enjoy ice cream. I say a "Shreveport way" because I had never heard of this J-shaped ice cream cone up until my first Mudbug Madness Festival.
The WonderStick Cone Was Created to Avoid Your Ice Cream Dripping Everywhere.
When asked to describe the cone I told someone it's like a very thick churro with ice cream in the middle. If you ask the team at the WonderStick stand they will tell you it's the perfect mix of thick and crunchy which prevents the ice cream from getting the cone soggy. It's gluten-free if that matters to you.
The WonderStick Was Created by a Dad and Son Duo From Shreveport.
Tobin and Lee Grigsby decided that they had a delicious invention on their hands that was desperately needed in the Ark-La-Tex and decided to showcase it at outdoor events in their hometown of Shreveport.
The WonderStick Made Its Grand Debut at the Mudbug Madness Festival in 2015.
Although it was invented in 2014 it took a minute for the dynamic duo to find the perfect place to showcase their delicious invention. Now WonderStick has 5 different stands that travel nationwide spreading the goodness that is the WonderStick.
The WonderStick Is Not Just a Shreveport Snack Anymore, They're Winning Awards Everywhere They Go.
The WonderStick holds two epic titles, The Best Unique Food at the 2016 Oklahoma State Fair and The Most Unique Fair Food at the 2016 Pensacola Interstate Fair. The WonderStick is the most Shreveport snack ever, it's only fair that we spread the goodness of Shreveport when it comes to fair food right?
