Carvel Is Bringing Back a Fan-Favorite Flavor Not Seen in Over 50 Years

It’s oh-so dreamy.



Some foods bring back waves of nostalgia, and ice cream is at the top of the list of foods that take us back to yesteryear. Few people don't enjoy ice cream (or some non-dairy version of the treat). While brands are constantly coming up with new flavor combos full of mix-ins—such as Häagan-Dazs Vanilla Caramel Pecan or Ben & Jerry's PB S'more—sometimes ice cream lovers want something simple that takes them back to childhood.

Ice cream with a creamy orange-vanilla flavor is one of those childhood faves. Carvel used to have its own version called Orange Dreamy Creamy, but the ice cream shop hasn't carried it in over 50 years. The last time ice cream lovers could enjoy Orange Dreamy Creamy was in 1972.

In honor of Carvel's 90th Birthday, the scoop shop is giving customers a taste of nostalgia with six new Orange Dreamy Creamy items, starting April 1 for a limited time.
