Carvel 85th Birthday 5/2

On Thursday May 2, Carvel® Ice Cream, the New York born and bred, first-of-its-kind ice cream franchise, will offer junior size cups and cones for only $0.85 each at all full-service shoppe locations nationwide in honor of the brand’s 85th birthday. Customers can choose from any soft-serve ice cream flavor available in-shoppe including vanilla, chocolate, cold brew coffee and more.

To commemorate this milestone moment and give back to the fans and communities who have been loyal to Carvel from the start, Carvel will donate $10,000 to the American Red Cross’ Sound the Alarm campaign. Created to reduce home fire-related casualties, the Red Cross will hold events from April 27 through May 12 in 100 at-risk communities nationwide to install 100,000 free smoke alarms and provide education surrounding home fire safety. Carvel fans can make an additional donation via this link.

“$0.85 Cone Day is a way for us to give back to the loyal fans who’ve helped Carvel reach this milestone,” said Nicolle DuBose, Senior Director of Marketing at Carvel. “Eighty-five years after Tom Carvel invented soft serve ice cream by happenstance, we continue to look toward the future to give our fans the delicious, home-made ice cream, iconic characters, tasty innovation and sweet celebrations they know and love. Here’s to the next 85!”

In addition to $0.85 Cone Day, Carvel and Captain Lawrence Brewing are re-releasing a limited edition Cookie Puss Milkshake IPA, available wherever Captain Lawrence is sold all across the east coast. Brewed with Carvel’s legendary vanilla ice cream, the beer has a rich, full-body taste and texture. Visit to learn more and find a distributor near you.
