Since 1934, sweet-lovers have been flocking to this retailer for ice cream cakes, cones, cookies and more.. In Short Tom Carvel was inspired to found a freestanding ice cream store after his ice cream truck suffered a flat tire and he began selling his melting inventory from the roadside. Today, Carvel products can be found in grocery stores and at franchises throughout the country. Specialties include ice cream cakes in a variety of shapes for just about any occasion. Other sweet treats include ice cream cones, shakes, sandwiches and sundaes.
We love Carvel!! I just found one in Smyrna on South Cobb Drive by accident on my way home. You have to try this ice cream. It is the best. They make it at the store. The cake mix carvelanches are great. We never had thiose in NY. The ice cream cakes are to die for. I bought a Carvel cake at a Publix a year ago and thought Carvel died. Well, not so. The cakes made at the store are fresh and tasty. You have to try it! The Carvel cakes in the supermarket are shipped in from a factory and quite frankly are not very good. Oh and I love the NY attitude! This is the place you want to go to with friends or family. They just need to to start selling coffee but they let you bring it in from next door!
