I love carvel ice cream, but what makes it the bomb-diggity is those little cookie crunchy chocolate things you can get sprinkled in your ice cream. Its the same loveliness they put in between the cake layers. What is this magical marvelous stuff? I think it is made by leprechauns or gnomes or something.

My family likes to try new flavors and they let you taste before choosing which is helpful. Also the amount of ice cream you received in the small is more than enough, even as an adult.

We ordered two small cups of ice cream - one was a hot fudge sundae and one was with crunch. $10.89 is too much to pay for two small cups of ice cream when it's fresh; but the ice cream and the crunch tasted stale. We won't be back.

They always get it right EVERYTIME. A nice family run place. We have never been disappointed. The son is young but very sharp.
