Calling all Fudgie the Whale fans!

By Meg Josephson

You love indulging in a big bowl of vanilla ice cream, but you’re also are a sucker for a gooey chocolate chip cookie. What do you do when you have to choose? Well now, thanks to the team over at Carvel, you don’t have to. Your two guilty pleasures just had a beautiful baby.

Carvel recently debuted a combination of America’s two favorite desserts, and it's a tasty treat that will leave you craving more. It combines creamy vanilla ice cream, chewy chocolate chip cookies, and, last but not least, Carvel’s famous chocolate crunchies (Fudgie the Whale fans know all about the crunchies). The chill of the ice cream plus the crunch and gooeyness of the cookie is a dream come true. Plus, you don't have to live near a Carvel scoop shop to enjoy it. 

“Consumer demand for Carvel outside of the famous ice cream shoppes in the northeast and Florida continues to grow,” Dave Mikita, SVP Global Channels, Carvel's parent company, said in a statement. “People don’t want to wait for a special occasion to treat themselves. The Carvel Ice Cream Cookie Cake is a first of its kind product innovation at grocery, while having the convenient, shareable, ‘serve anytime’ qualities consumers are seeking.”

Whether you call it a giant cookie ice cream sandwich or a decadent dessert pizza, Carvel’s ice cream cookie cake is the perfect dessert for sharing. Slice and serve just like you would pizza—no utensils necessary. Enjoyed indoors or outside, the new Carvel cake will bring your family and friends together through the shared love of dessert. Plus, no utensils means less dishes to wash.
