Let’s take a trip back to a St. Patrick’s Day long ago. Tommy Carvel, ABSOLUTE FUCKING GENIUS, was still alive and he still had a great idea or two left in him. Sure, Cookie Puss was already a big seller. Fudgie The Whale, too. But then one late night, while many a stoned/wasted New Yorker was watching TV, this appeared (dig that spacey Irish accent!) Not only did it change the way millions (ok, maybe hundreds of thousands) celebrated the holiday, it also inspired a Beastie Boys song.
Look at that stainless steel. That white lab coat. Carvel uses the science of the 70’s to bring you the magic of ice cream. Every single ice cream cone is fact checked.
