Introducing Carvel Ice Cream Featuring Nutella®! @CarvelIceCream #Giveaway #Partner

*This post was written by me on behalf of Carvel. I received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% mine. 


    When I was a kid growing up in Spain, one of my favorite “meriendas”, or snacks, was freshly baked bread with Nutella® spread on it.  I can still remember how much I looked forward to coming home from school and enjoying that special treat with my Grandmother.  When I found out that Carvel was going to be introducing a new ice cream flavor featuring Nutella®, I was thrilled beyond words!


    Yesterday, I decided to take my boys to Carvel to try this new ice cream flavor after depositing some money at the bank.  I explained to them how I had grown up eating Nutella® and that we were going to try ice cream that would taste like it.  Carvel introduced its line of treats with Nutella® June 30 and it will be available until Sept. 30.


You can choose from the new flavors in soft-serve, hand-scooped ice cream, as well as Sundae Dashers®, including:

  • Hand-Scooped Chocolate Ice Cream layered with Nutella® hazelnut spread and Carvel Crunchies, then topped with Nutella® hazelnut spread
  • Soft-Serve Ice Cream made with Nutella® hazelnut spread
  • Sundae Dasher with Banana – Layers soft-serve made with Nutella® and bananas topped with whipped cream and Nutella® hazelnut spread
  • Sundae Dasher with Chocolate Crunchies – Layers of soft-serve made with Nutella® and Carvel Crunchies topped with whipped cream and Nutella® hazelnut spread


    If it was up to me, I would choose to make these new Nutella® inspired ice cream flavors a permanent part of the menu at Carvel.  Not only are they delicious, but they taste just like the Nutella® Hazelnut Spread that we all know and love.  Every spoonful for me was full of joyful memories from my childhood and that, for me, is priceless!

Let’s Discuss:  What is your favorite ice cream flavor and what memories of eating it do you have from your childhood?

  1. I always get the same thing when I visit Carvel, but I think that my favorite is about to change thanks to the new Nutella flavor! I can eat Nutella by the spoonful! 😉

  2. Nicole Ramage says

    I love nutella. My dad puts a heaping scoop of it on his chocolate peanut bitter ice cream.

  4. Yesenia Torres says

    Mi sabor preferido es el de coco, recuerdo cuando salíamos los domingos a comer un rico ice cream . Me fascina la Nutella , quiero probar este nuevo sabor de Carvel.

  5. OK Nutella and ice cream in one, sounds like absolute awesomeness. I am definitely going to have to try that.

  6. paulaschuck says

    We don;t have Carvel in Canada. Too stinking bad because that sounds like a really super combination. I will look for this the next time I am in the US though.

  7. That sounds delicious! We don’t have one near us, but love to stop during our travels. Might need to find an excuse to travel again soon! lol

  8. sarah oswald says

    I love any ice cream that has peanut butter or mint in it. I remember going out for ice cream with my aunt after dance classes and I loved spending the time with her and I will never forget those times spent there with her.

  9. Robin Rue says

    We don’t have Carvel stores around here, but that sounds road trip worthy! I LOVE Nutella!

  10. Debra Hall says

    my favorite is strawberry and as a child i remember the ice cream truck coming around with soft serve ice cream it was so good on a hot day

  11. Melissa Vera says

    My favorite is chocolate chip. I remember as a child going to visit my grandmother and getting a chocolate chip ice cream cone from friendly’s

  12. oh i remember going to Carvel Ice Cream shop while growing up in New Rochelle and recently we had a Carvel Ice Cream cake for Malik’s birthday. I love their freshly scooped icecream!

  13. I’ve never been to Carvel, but I’ve had their ice cream cake. However, anything with Nutella is already awesome in my book.

  14. Melanie Roberts says

    YUMMM this is awesome, I’m a total Nutella addict and can’t wait to try this!!!! Love my Nutella, thanks for sharing

  17. Ice cream and Nutella? Sounds delicious, I can’t wait to try it next time I go to Carvel!

  18. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says

    Now that’s a marriage made in heaven. I’ve never been to Carvel before, but oh my gosh, if I ever stumble across one, I’m getting that Nutella scoop!

  19. Rebecca Bryant says

    I’m addicted to nutella this would be my version of paradise.

  20. Nutella? Are you kidding me!?! I must have some!!

  21. I remember eating Vienna Mocha Chunk from Friendly’s…soooo good. I still love it. 🙂

  22. Thrill of the Chases says

    Just when you thought Nutella couldn’t get any better, someone pairs it with ice cream! Yum!! I wonder if there are Carvel’s in the South. I’ve never seen one before.

  23. I always get chocolate peanut butter. We were sent to try this new flavor too but the store didn’t have it and it was a bad experience. Your store looks great!

  24. That looks so good! I have never heard of Carvel before!

  25. Amber Nelson says

    Now this looks like a dream come true. Love Nutella!

  26. Allisha Gold says

    Mocha almond fudge has always been the best! I always prefer the coffee-tasting ice cream flavors even though I don’t really drink coffee. haha My favorite childhood memories involve ice cream in the form of dippin dots at amusement parks 🙂

  27. Danielle Stewart says

    My son would probably love this ice cream. I am not a nutella fan but my son is up to try anything that even remotely looks like chocolate.

  28. My favorite was Mint Chip and about once a year my mom would let us eat sundaes for dinner!

  29. Uh, yea, why is this not going to be a permanent option?! They are going to make people go crazy giving them just a few weeks to try these and then taking them away! They sound amazing!

  30. I had a Carvel store near me when I lived in Brooklyn but haven’t really seen them here in CO. I used to love their ice-cream cake.

  31. That looks like such a great idea. It enough people like it, it might become a permeant flavor.

  32. MMMM, Nutella and Ice cream all at the same time? Sign me up, please!

  33. We just got Carvel here in MN. I can’t wait to take the kids!

  34. Oh yum yum – this sounds delicious, what great mix, wonder if I can get hold of it over here! x

  35. I love Nutella so much! I always take a scoopful for myself out of the jar when packing my girls their lunch. Put it in ice cream? That’s yummy overload right there! Too bad we don’t have a Carvel here 🙁

  36. mail4rosey says

    We used to have a Carvel close by but now we don’t. I sure miss it, especially come birthday times. 🙂

  37. I’ve never heard of this but then again I am in Louisiana. I wish there was one though because the ice cream looks delicious.

  38. My favorite is Mint Chocolate Chip. I always remember that it was my dad’s favorite. Maybe that is why I like it- I have always been a Daddy’s Girl.

  39. renee walters says

    My favorite ice cream flavor is chocolate peanut butter! I remember my Dad taking us for ice cream cones as a treat when we were little.

    My favorite way to eat ice cream is in a waffle cone with chocolate soft serve and chocolate jimmies. As a kid I used to go to Jimmie Cone in Damascus Maryland with all of my friends. I still go there now and so do they. It’s definitely a childhood memory that keeps getting passed down.

  59. Melanie Comello says

    My favorite has always been Pistachio and my funniest memories from it is actually the looks i got from everyone when i was lil trying to explain that it was my favorite lol. I guess to a lot of people pistachio icecream shouldn’t be all that appealing to younger kids lol, who knows lol

  60. Carolyn Daley says

    My favorite ice cream from Carvel is the soft serve swirl. We used to go to Carvel on Wednesdays for the BOGO ice cream sundaes. I usually always ordered swirl because I like the chocolate and vanilla combination. I think they taste better together.

  61. I love a rice double fudge brownie ice cream with fudge.
