Everything about a crispy cake cone covered in thin wax paper and filled to the brim with a swirl of frozen soft serve on top screams summer. It's creamy, refreshing, affordable, and you can pick one up just about anywhere in the country. Case in point: fast food chains.

So, we set out to taste the most popular fast food soft serves to see if the nostalgic brands we used order still measured up.
