Given FN's shows on cupcakes and doughnuts - I was surprised that King of Cones is more like a dessert version of Chopped than a straight up ice cream show.
In each challenge, the competitors need to make an ice cream (or gelato, sorbet, etc.)and have either one or two mystery ingredients, and a theme to incorporate. Johnny Iuzzini is one of the rotating judges, and I would say I enjoy it as much as Chopped. Compared to recent tries with shows like Kitchen Casino and Rewrapped, I enjoy this far more.
