Last summer, Saskatchewan restaurants dominated cone sales in Canada from May to August with its first taste of the $1 cone. But soft serve lovers have shown themselves across the country: Ladner, B.C. holds the record for the most cones sold in a single day with more than 1,200 cones sold, and on the other side of the country, Bathurst, N.B. topped all other cities with highest cone sales for the entire year – which makes sense, as it is also the birthplace of the McFlurry!

Starting Tuesday, June 4th until Monday, September 2nd, McDonald's Canada invites Canadians to celebrate the best moments summer has to offer with its vanilla soft serve cones for just $1 plus tax, made with 100 per cent Canadian dairy and no artificial flavours or colours.
The $1 cone is another way McDonald's is expanding its offerings for Canadian families. Whether it's to celebrate the last day of school, a sunny stroll in the park, or a pick-me-up at the drive-thru after soccer practice, any family experience can be made even sweeter with a cone.
