Serving ice cream since 1934, Carvel was not totally unknown to me: I heard about it, saw some ice cream cakes at the supermarket, but never tried it. For sure, you need to find a location and it is in Woodside, Queens, that I go to try Carvel Ice Cream, right after we got ourselves a burger...

Not that I went overboard: I was quite reasonable and went for the soft serve ice cream that is apparently one of their specialties, choosing both chocolate and vanilla. But it would not have been complete without a topping and it is bittersweet chocolate fudge that I chose: quite good, but a bit too sweet for my taste. However, the ice cream was pretty good and regretted not choosing a bigger cup...

Jodi simply went for vanilla, also soft serve, with sprinkles on top.

That was nice and I would go back there for some of their special ice cream, some having funny names...But I would say that I prefer ColdStone Ice Cream that is richer and more decadent.

Enjoy (I did)!
