            I just saw this query b/c of a google search for paper cones, and came across this. I know it is late, but better late than never: try this place...

              I actually have a non-profit organization of individuals with disabilities producing the cones for us. They are a little pricey, but it is a worthwhile cause.

                      go to http://www.breadbaskets.com/ Please note: there is a minimum order and I am not sure for how much. The paper cones come is several sizes. The ones I bought are 7 by 7 inches when they are folded down. Opened as a cone they look a bit larger and they hold a fairly large order of frites. I left this post on the international board as well. Good luck and let me know if this was of help to you.

                          If I would have seen this post first I would not have responded with mine, however, the people at breadbaskets.com are very nice. I would send them a email with your cone photo and ask them if it is available here. I'll bet you it is not but they would know better then I, good luck. By the way, I have things send to me from Europe all the time, why not order them there.

                          I think that the cones that you're looking for are available here:

                            If this is what you are looking for, it seems like you should just make your own. Do you have a problem with that because you need to make a lot of them?

                            Did you try the international board for a source? I've tried doing a bunch of different google searches, but nothing is coming up other than what all of us have posted.

                            Good luck.

                              I am so bummed that nobody has come up with a source for these paper cones. They are not snowcone cones. Anyone who has experienced Belgian Frittes will know what I'm talking about. It HAS to be the cones from Belgium!!!

                                  Thanks, I might have to resort to origami if all else fails! I am trying to accomodate a large quantity of fries in these cones & the ready-made ones have a reinforced seam. I KNOW that someone out there has the info - if only they'll share it!!!!

                                    Make your own!

                                    All you have to do is cut a square of parchment or wax paper, bring two of the opposite ends together, fold one inside and tape the other outside. When you do that, you will form a cone that has a triangular piece jutting out from the top. Fold this into the cone and tape it down for added strength and voila you have a paper cone.

                                    Use the same tecnique to make a pastry bag, cutting the bottom of the cone to your needs.

                                      I have used snow cone cups with good luck. You can buy them at any party store or big box retailer.

                                          Many of the restaurants that sell belgian fries have what appears to be a parchment paper style cone - these cones come in three or four sizes & I am hoping to locate them.
