Before ice cream, cones were only filled with cheerleading chants and an overwhelming sense of responsibility for organizing traffic. Enjoy a conical dessert with today's Groupon to Carvel in New Carrollton, near the metro station. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of ice-cream treats.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of ice-cream cakes.
Carvel panders to dessert devotees with a menu of handmade confections, all ice-cream-cakes, frozen treats, and soft-serve ice cream mixed from kosher ingredients. A cup or cone of swirled vanilla or chocolate soft-serve (starting at $2.79) pervades palates with frosty flavors that satisfy the tongue's natural urge to lick lampposts in January. Carvel's sugar specialists handcraft each Carvelanche from a frigid vanilla or chocolate base blended with up to three candied toppings, including M&M'S, Reese's, and Butterfinger morsels. Feed a ravenous horde with the fresh, custom-made ice cream, chocolate crunchies, and hand-piped icing of a large sheet cake, or celebrate the first birthday of the family coffee table with a Lil' Love cake ($11.99).
