Imagine this: A soft serve ice cream machine that not only dispenses soft serve ice cream, but also dishes out soft serve that’s been mixed with Nutella! Soft serve ice cream mixed with Nutella – sound too good to be true? Well, it is no joke… but it’s only going to be available for another couple of weeks.
Carvel, which is a popular soft serve ice cream franchise that operates in many locations throughout the United States, recently partnered with Nutella, the manufacturer of “a tasty, unique spread made from the combination of roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa” and launched a delicious soft serve flavor combination available for a very limited time.
The two companies are working together on a summertime promotion that began on June 30, 2014 and will last until September 30, 2014. Therefore, there are only a couple of weeks left for fans of Carvel’s soft serve machines and Nutella to experience several one-of-a-kind frozen treats.
According to Carvel’s website, Carvel launched a of line of treats made with Nutella® on June 30, which will be will be available until September 30. Guests 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
Americans have been enjoying the treats served in Carvel’s soft serve machines for many decades. According to a press release published on Carvel’s website, the company is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year. Similarly, Nutella is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014.
These milestone anniversaries are a great reason to introduce a special limited-time flavor! Loyal enthusiasts of Carvel’s soft serve ice cream machines who have been enjoying the delicious Carvel-Nutella combination since the beginning of June are surely going to be disappointed when the soft serve machines dispense their last Nutella ice cream treats at the end of September.
If you are lucky enough to have tried a soft serve ice cream-Nutella treat this past summer, we want to hear from you. Was it as good as it looked? Many times, a soft serve ice cream machine promotion, such as the one implemented by Carvel and Nutella, is enough to draw many new and returning customers into an ice cream shop.
Another example of a successful soft serve campaign that is currently being promoted by Dairy Queen, is the franchise’s limited-time-only Apple Pie Blizzard treat: “A delicious cinnamon apple, with cinnamon pie pieces blended with creamy vanilla soft serve, and garnished with whipped topping & cinnamon sprinkles.”
These flavors, both currently available in the soft serve ice cream machines at respective and participating Carvel and Dairy Queen locations, both sound too good to be true!
