December 04, 2015 // // ATLANTA -  Tis’ the season for Santa, snow and the return of Carvel’s classic holiday cakes and novelties. Carvel …America’s Freshest Ice Cream®, is also celebrating the holidays by bringing back a variety of mint ice cream treats available through March.

From Dec. 1 until Christmas, guests can bring joy into their homes with holiday-themed ice cream cakes and novelty treats, including:

  • Santa Cake: Features layers of freshly made vanilla and chocolate ice cream separated by a layer of chocolate crunchies and covered in icing to resemble a heavily-bearded Old St. Nick.
  • Snowman Cake: A snowman-shaped cake made with layers of fresh vanilla and chocolate ice cream separated by a layer of chocolate crunchies and covered with white, blue, green and red icing.
  • Christmas Tree Cake: Made with layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream separated by a layer of chocolate crunchies, this cake is topped with green whipped frosting, fudge and M&Ms.
  • Lil’ Snowmen Novelty Treats: These take-home treats feature delicious freshly-made soft serve ice cream and are decorated to look like adorable miniature snowmen.

“Carvel’s classic holiday cakes and novelty treats have become staples at many of our guests’ Christmas and winter holiday celebrations,” said Carvel President Scott Colwell. “We hope our fresh, hand-crafted treats continue to bring our customers joy this holiday season.”

Also returning to Carvel until March 13 is a seasonal mint flavor. Mint treats include mint soft ice cream, mint OREO® hand scooped ice cream and a mint shake. Guests can also enjoy the mint OREO® Sundae Dasher™, which features layers of mint ice cream, OREO® cookie pieces, and hot fudge topped with whipped cream and a dusting of OREO® cookies.
