Contortion Engineering is indeed a trifle bent

Thanks for the great historical info. I'd forgotten about that Judaism 101 site, very readable layman's explanations for lots of basics.

Ya gotta figure in transportation, equipment, food cost and TAX at 10%.
And there's no reason that has to be set in stone... if it doesn't work out, raise or lower prices as needed. You might try running "daily specials" to use as feelers for what the optimum price is for max sales/profits on various items, too.

Chocolate sprinkles included or extra?

Considering a 3-scoop cone would total up at $4.50 I'd think sprinkles, coatings, and such oughta be included! But....

Depends, if it's Chanukah then certainly... Just kidding about that but to to answer the question, I would lean to including 'em or worse case a nickel up charge or whatever my cost is.
The ice cream I'm scooping has tons of inclusions so all by itself it's a mouthful. We weren't going to carry a bunch of toppings, like nuts, as much as I like chopped nuts on my ice cream we now have to worry about food allergies and such so if we even have 'em in the trailer it could cause an issue or turn away customers.
We've also got to consider lactose intolerant people and see if it's worth carrying something geared to that.

I read both articles and I gotta say it'd be a cold day in AZ when I paid $50 for 3 pints of ice cream, I don't care HOW it's made it isn't worth that!

As a consumer I share the outrage of paying upwards of $3 for a short single scoop of ice cream and Gelato is no exception. The one or two times I went to one of those shops that mix in stuff on a cold strip of granite when you order I almost fell over when I got to the register.

As a side note, if I were to stock Gelato my wholesale cost would force me to at least a $4 scoop price as it's about twice the wholesale cost as is Ben and Jerry's and other so-called ultra premium ice creams.
Alot of it is hype and marketing, at this point I'd match mouth feel and taste of what we're selling to Ben and Jerry's any day.

It's hard enough to dip a 2-scoop cone, but a 3-scoop cone?

Considering the physics of the situation, how would someone dip a 3-scoop cone into a bowl of sprinkles without losing one or more scoops in the bowl?

No dipping into the bowl required. They're called "sprinkles" for a reason, after all...

Just tryin' to help out.

I'm sorry but that's a professional secret! Actually you'd use a spoon to pour it over the cone and tamp it down then toss the spoon. Triples are tough to dip in chocolate coating but if stacked correctly and done quick (and lucky) it can be done.

The only way I know to completely cover the ice cream scoop(s) with sprinkles is to hold the cone at a down-angle and roll the ice cream scoop(s) around in the bowl of sprinkles, all the while rotating the cone with a back-and-forth motion. Spooning the sprinkles on is slower and will not completely cover the ice cream scoop(s) with sprinkles.
