Carvel Ice Cream - A blast from childhood in NY

When I grew up on Long Island, New York CARVEL was always the best treat. After we moved to New Mexico and went back to visit,  it was one of the things we had to have at least once, even if it was the middle of winter.  There are no Carvel stores in Colorado where we live now,  so when we visit Florida we have to get our ice cream fix

This is my favorite swirl of vanilla and chocolate on a cone covered with chocolate sprinkles.  
  
Gene likes his ice cream in a cup, also the soft serve swirl.  They do have regular hard ice cream in several flavors but we get this so rarely, we don't want to miss the chance to have the best and creamist of all soft serve ice creams.  

The flying saucers ice cream sandwiches are another treat that are available in the grocery stores now too, but alas not in Colorado.
