The ice-cream architects at Carvel have honed their craft over the course of 75 years, scooping and designing fresh-made cakes, novelties, and fountain specialties in more than 500 locations across the world. The local specialists orchestrate symphonies of soft-serve vanilla and chocolate ice cream on cones ($3.99) and hand-pack to-go containers ($8.99) with rippled mountains of mint ice cream and chocolate chips the size of small boulders. Each of Carvel’s small ($18.99), medium ($29.99), and large ($39.99) ice-cream cakes makes for a creamy and decadent candle platform. Frozen groundworks of vanilla and chocolate ice cream stabilize the towering desserts, and layers of Carvel’s signature chocolate crunchies add additional support.
As the nation’s first retail ice-cream shop, Carvel has long charted a pioneering course across the frozen tundra of the dessert world. Kosher ingredients fill the fresh-made scoops, cakes, and swirly mounds, and the shop’s farmers keep nascent ice cream at optimal temperatures by reading chilling H.P. Lovecraft stories to cows before bedtime.
