Carvel Debuts Fall Flavors
The Pumpkin Spice Arctic Blender is a mixture of vanilla flavoring, pumpkin flavoring, and caramel syrup, all expertly blended then topped with graham crackers, frothy whipped cream, a drizzle of caramel, and chocolate crunchies.
Carvel created the Peppermint Mocha Blended Coffee which includes vanilla flavoring, peppermint candy, and coffee blended and topped with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and chocolate crunchies.
“We introduced Arctic Blenders and Blended Coffees this past spring and so far they have been extremely well received,” explains Gary Bales, president of Carvel Ice Cream. “To continue the momentum of our beverage category we wanted to spice things up and introduce flavors that resonate with the season.”
Additionally, Carvel introduced Lil’ Rounders this fall which are two mini-cookies with soft serve in the middle sold in 12-packs. Essentially, it is a bite-size version of Carvel’s famous Chipsters. To kick off the launch of this new novelty, Carvel hosted a Customer Appreciation Day on September 20. Customers were invited to enjoy a free Lil’ Rounder as well as a soft serve cone for $0.59.
While Lil’ Rounders are now a permanent menu item, the seasonal beverages and hand-dipped flavors are only available until December 31.
