Like magma and dreams, ice cream is a semisolid—neither solid enough to build a house upon nor liquid enough to feed to a thirsty sparrow. Force sparrows to wait for the next rain with today's Groupon to Carvel Ice Cream on New Garden Road in Greensboro. Choose between two options:
For more than 75 years, Carvel Ice Cream has been perfecting the art of generating smiles by handing out hand-dipped soft-serve and frosted ice-cream cakes. Ice cream resides in a number of homes, from a standard cup or cone ($1.79–$4.84 each) to a drink-size receptacle with a thick shake ($3.39–$4.70).
The Carvelanche blends up to three toppings, such as M&M's, Reese's, and cake mix, with ice cream ($3.80–$5.25), and the Banana Barge transports a choice of ice cream, three toppings, and a banana ($5.59) to stomachs on a miniature replica of the barge that transported Babe Ruth's baseball bats to each away game. Carvel's cakes buffer creamy chocolate and vanilla ice cream with a layer of chocolate crunch to avoid interflavor conflict. The Lil' Love cake feeds four to six ($10.99), and a Large Sheet cake satisfies 35–40 people ($41.79) or one racehorse after a grueling training session.
