The Crunchies

Memories.

Though it's important to mention that a small Carvel ice cream cake is currently $13.99.  Small like very small.

Is Carvel a very East Coast thing? We have them here but I have no recollection of ever having seen a commercial for one.

I will say, just today was at the grocery store and remarked to myself, "Damn, Carvel cakes are expensive!"
Thought that was funny you mentioned it.

Rot said...

Yup...started in the East and for most of the 80s was only in the east.
I remember seeing commercials for Fudgey the Whale. My parents NEVER bought us one. So ice cream cakes have probably always been expensive.

Weird names... like they should totally have ones called Lumpy or Chunky.

Wow a Carvel commercial. I can't even remember the last time I saw one of those. It looks like they have a name for every cake. The Valentine's day one is called Cupi-puss??

Rot have you ever had the pumpkin pie ice cream from Tanner Bros? Da bomb

Rot said...

never tried their pumpkin ice cream, but we've been there before for other flavors.

Carvel ice cream cakes were a part of many of my birthdays growing up. All of their commercials were hilariously weird.
