Carvel Debuts Ice Cream Cookie Cake

The latest innovation from Carvel® offers an everyday dessert for everyone and all ages.

ATLANTA (April 13, 2017) – Carvel is adding to its popular retail line of ice cream cakes with the launch of its Carvel Ice Cream Cookie Cake. The new, original treat is a first at grocery and combines two classic, American favorite desserts – vanilla ice cream sandwiches and chocolate chip cookie cakes – to create the ultimate, sharable indulgence for families and friends. Complete with Carvel’s famous crunchies around the outside, the new cake resembles a giant cookie ice cream sandwich that is made to serve a group.

The Carvel Ice Cream Cookie Cake is the perfect treat to celebrate every occasion or no occasion at all. The delightful dessert is now available at select retail partners including Publix, Stop & Shop, Giant Landover, Giant Carlisle and ShopRite for a suggested retail price of $19.99. Serving up to 12 people, the Carvel Ice Cream Cookie Cake is a premium grab-and-go option for last-minute sweet-tooth cravings and can easily be personalized with a message on top for a celebration.

“Consumer demand for unique and delicious sweet treats is growing and so is Carvel,” said Kat Cole, group president, global, multi-channel division for FOCUS Brands (Carvel’s parent company). “People don’t want to wait for a special occasion to treat themselves. The Carvel Ice Cream Cookie Cake is a combination of nostalgic favorites, but a first-of-its-kind product innovation at the grocery, while having the convenient, shareable, ‘serve anytime’ qualities consumers are seeking.”

Carvel worked on the development and manufacturing of the Carvel Ice Cream Cookie Cake with long-time partner, Rich Products Corporation, a leading supplier and solutions provider to the foodservice, in-store bakery and retail marketplaces. In addition to new product development, the duo also introduced a new look for its full portfolio of iconic cakes in the grocery with a vibrant, contemporary design updated with the refreshed Carvel® logo. The new packaging for all SKUs is in grocery stores now.
