  1. do you make childrens birthday cakes my son wants a dr, cake or something like it, i dont see any cakes on your websight thank oyu,

  2. Just wanted to take a moment and thank Carvel for all the years of joy and deliciousness they’ve been responsible for in my life. I was fortunate to grow up with a Carvel minutes from my parent’s home in Dunedin, FL. It was a weekly tradition for my mom and I to go to our local Carvel, and enjoy a cone. I don’t remember the name of the man who ran it, but he was always dressed all in white with his paper hat and so friendly (as a child I was convinced he was so friendly simply because he got to have Carvel all day). She always would get Maple Walnut and I would get the Vanilla Soft Serve in a sugar cone with rainbow sprinkles. That location closed many years ago. A few years ago, I discovered a store just a few miles away and now we are enjoying Carvel’s treats once again. And yes, I still get my Rainbow Sprinkled Soft Serve cone. :) Tried a Fudgie the Whale cake for the first time this week…it was FABULOUS! Thanks for all the great treats and great memories!

    • Great to hear from you, Jackie! We appreciate your kind message & are happy to know that Carvel has been able to provide so many warm memories for families like yours. Take care & glad you found a shoppe to continue the tradition!


  4. Good Day! Crazy question; Not all that familair with the products sold at the supermarkets in my area but was wondering if the supermarkets sell Carvel Ice Cream in a cup cake format? Seems like there is a renewed cupcake craze in my my area and cup cake type ice cream would be a great hit. Thank you!

  5. Ashley
    I am very impressed by the way you handled the Lohan card incident. You were straightforward and real with your explanation. Carvel is my favorite and their public relations is as smooth as the soft serve ice cream!

  6. I am a carvel cake lover! I was going to buy one for a birthday at the grocery store, but after reading this I think I should drive to a Carvel store. Is there a difference in the cakes?

    • There’s a definite difference, Simon! All Carvel cakes that are purchased in local stores are made fresh (in-house, by hand) usually within a few days of your visit. The grocery store cakes are made in a warehouse & shipped across the country. While we are thrilled to have our cakes available in a variety of venues, our shoppes are the place to go to get the best tasting treat.

      Hope this helps!

  7. i absolute love y’all cakes i cry if i don’t get one every year for my birthday day.

  8. I used to live on Long Island as a kid and we had a carvel in my hometown (Merrick) and was always able to purchase either soft or hard pistachio ice cream without the nuts. 2years ago i had to go to Long Island in an emergency and was still able to get pistachio that way which was absolutley fantastic. i now live in the Atlanta area how can i get pistachio ice cream without the nuts. Can i order it special ie pint, quart, gallon. Please let me know if there is a way i can get my favorite ice cream THANK YOU WILLIAM BICKUM

    • Hi William,

      Glad to hear you still love Carvel’s pistachio ice cream! I had it for the first time earlier this year & it’s fantastic!

      While our northern locations almost always have soft & hard pistachio flavors, it’s not as common down south. I would contact the shoppe closest to you & put in a special request with the Franchise Partner. Please let me know if you run into any problems!

      Thanks again,

      Ashley Swann

  9. Does your icecream cake contain any nut ingredients? I am wanting to purchase a cake for my daughters birthday but truly need to confirm there is no nut products in your cakes.

    Thank you

    • Hi Barbara,

      While there are no nuts or nut products in our ice cream cakes, our stores are not nut-free. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that even though a cake does not contain nuts, it has not been in contact with nuts.

      The following products in our shoppes contain nuts:

      Peanut Butter
      Ground Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
      Ground Heath Bar
      Crushed Peanuts
      Diced Almonds
      Chopped Pecans
      Chopped Walnuts

      The following items contain traces of nuts or are made in a plant that also produces products that contain nuts:

      Lil’ Rounder Cookies (Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Chip, Sugar)

      Where are you located? I would recommend visiting the shoppe to speak with the owner directly & explain the seriousness of the situation. They should be able to tell you if they can provide you a cake that is 100% safe. I am sorry that I can’t be of more help, but I hope this information at least points you in the right direction.

      Feel free to call me if you have questions.

    • Hi Peggy,

      Our Franchise Partners can make just about any cake or design that you want. Please contact the shoppe closest to you for more information.

      Hope your friend has a great birthday!


  11. II can not find Carvel IceCream Cakes. I went to go get one and could not find one in NH. Do you know where i can get one in the NH area. The store in Salem NH closed and it’s now called Marvel. Do you guys have anything to do with this store? I also can’t find them at the supermarkets as well,

    • Hi Tammy,

      I’m sorry to hear that you are having trouble finding Carvel cakes in your area. Our partner, Celebration Foods, manufactures the cakes for grocery store sales. If you go to the store locator on their website (, you can find the outlet nearest you that sells them.

      I did a quick search for Salem, New Hampshire & found that they should be available at Shaw’s, Market Basket & BJ’s.

      Hope this helps!

  12. Hi, i was just wondering if Carvel in La Plata was hiring? I’m looking for a summer job. I’ve always LOVED Carvel and thought it would be fun working there. (:

    • Hi Kayla,

      Thanks for your interest in Carvel! All of our shoppes are individually owned, so you would need to contact the La Plata manager to inquire about employment opportunities.

      Good luck!

  13. is there any way to get in touch with a local carvel truck? I am planning an event with my town’s park and rec called touch-a-truck and we are trying to get cool truck to come to the event. this is a free, family, community day. we get trucks to come to the event and kids and families are able to look at them and even get inside and sit on the driver’s seat. someone at the office saw a carvel truck i have been researching it. we are looking for one in Connecticut.

    • Hi Rosemary,

      Thanks for your inquiry! Unfortunately, we no longer have Carvel trucks that serve our retail shoppes. What you probably saw was actually a Celebration Foods truck, which is a separate company that makes cakes to sell in grocery stores.

      That being said, we would love to be a part of your event. I would recommend you reach out to the closest retail shoppe and see if they would like to participate by serving ice cream or something. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any problems or need help coordinating.

  14. Neither your Nutrition Facts flyer available in the store nor on your website list ANY info on the Junior size products… the size mostly likely to be purchased by people limiting their calories. Why is that? I would like to know the nutrition facts of chocolate and vanilla, regular and lowfat, in a wafer cone. Thank you!

    • Hi Michele –

      Not a problem. I am going to email you a document that has the information you are looking for. Please let me know if you do not receive it.

      Ashley Swann

      • Thanks for the response, Ashley!

        If anyone is interested, here is the calorie count on Junior size cones:
        Low fat chocolate: 190
        Regular chocolate: 270
        Low fat vanilla: 200
        Regular vanilla: 290
        For a Junior size cup, subtract 20 calories for the cake cone.

        Nice to know I can continue to enjoy my favorite ice cream and still lose weight!

  17. Will Carvel ice cream ever come back to South Lyon MI?

    • Hi Kate!

      We would love to, but it just depends on us finding the right Franchise Partner to open a shoppe. Let us know if you know of someone who’s interested!:)

  19. i have been looking for the football snikers cake ever since i saw it advertized . can you please tell me where i may find it? thank you.
    Patricia Bordwick

    • Hi Patricia –

      Where are you located? Our football cakes should be available at any Carvel retail location (not in supermarkets).

      Please let us know if we can be of further assistance!


  20.

I would like to know in the future.Thank you

    • Hi Judy,

      You can customize our ice cream cakes any way you like (including having one made with our Carvelite ice cream) – but only if you purchase it from one of our retail locations. The grocery store cakes are not customizable.

      Hope this information helps & so glad to hear you enjoyed your last Carvel creation!

  21. Hey! I love Carvel ice cream and i would love to work in one of your shops. How do I apply?

    • Hi Davina,

      Each of our shoppes is individually owned & operated, so you would need to contact the location you’re interested in to see if they have any openings.

      Good luck!

  22. Hi! I was just wondering – could I put an image (from an anime) on my daughter’s cake? If so, would I simply print of the picture and bring it to a Carvel?

    • Hi Gilian –

      Most of our Shoppes have special edible image printers, so you can email them the file and they can print the image out for your cake.

      Hope this helps!

  23. Hello,

    I was wondering if Carvel has any summer jib position available?

    • Job*

      • Hi Angelica,

        We don’t have any positions here at corporate open at this time, but I encourage you to contact your local shoppe and see if they are hiring. Each shoppe is responsible for hiring their employees, corporate does not do this for them.

  24. I was recently at a Carvel in Wantagh Ny
    And they had a sign that said..We don’t
    Participate in buy one get one..
    Is that allowed?

  25. Do you sell gift cards on line
