In partnership with Lotus Biscoff, Carvel’s limited-time lineup of Cookie Butter Ice Cream treats graces shoppes for the first time in three years
ATLANTA – November 1, 2021
To sweeten the holiday season with a sprinkle of cookie butter magic, Carvel® Ice Cream and Lotus Biscoff are joining forces to introduce Carvel’s first-ever Cookie Butter Crunchies – and reintroduce the popular Cookie Butter Ice Cream treat lineup for the first time in three years. Made with crushed Lotus Biscoff cookies, fans will have more ways to enjoy everything they love about Carvel with the irresistibly creamy Cookie Butter flavor – now available for a limited time at participating Carvel shoppes or delivered straight to your door through food delivery platforms.
In addition to the Cookie Butter Ice Cream, Carvel is introducing, for the first time ever, Cookie Butter Crunchies. Cookie Butter Crunchies are crispy vanilla crunch blended with Lotus Biscoff cookie crumbles coated in a sweet vanilla bonnet shell. These Crunchies are a new take on Carvel’s beloved classic chocolate Crunchies, an integral part of Carvel’s history best known for being layered within Carvel’s famous ice cream cakes. Cookie Butter Crunchies is Carvel’s second-ever new Crunchies flavor, following the introduction of Churro Crunchies this summer.
“During the holidays, people seek comforting treats that remind them how magical the season is,” said Delia Wong, Director of Marketing, Carvel. “Our Cookie Butter Ice Cream and new Cookie Butter Crunchies made with Lotus Biscoff will transport fans to a cookie wonderland as they take breaks from the holiday rush, enjoy a cozy night in or share a treat with guests during holiday get-togethers.”
