Owned by a real jerk. – I dont know, call me crazy, but when I go to a store that sells ice cream cakes I have it in my head that the owner isnt going to go out of his way to be an impatient jerk. That would be like having a sex offender driving your local ice-cream truck - it just doesnt make sense. When I asked this guy if he could make a cookie-puss ice cream cake he looked me in the eyes and said "you're kidding me, right?" I'm sorry, but I like cookie-puss. I also like his Irish cousin, Cookie o' puss, but that's besides the point. Cookie-puss is a Carvel tradition, if you dont have the artistic talent to slap some cookies and an icecream cone nose on a cake, well then, I hate to infuse logic into the situation, but I think you're in the wrong business. Turns out the owner is a former corrections officer - big surprise. In sum: if you want to be treated like an inmate in D Block then by all means, put on your orange jumpsuit and hurry on down. Just dont ask about cookie-puss, apparently he is in solitary confinement. Frankly, I wouldnt have even posted this if I hadnt seen Icidesings' post. Almost forgot, he called my friend's wife a jerk in front of their kids when she rejected a cake he had mispriced. I'd like to give him a cookie-puss.
rude to cutomers – I took my daughter to a birthday party recently. The cake was from carvel. She loved it! She doesn't usually eat cake, but this was different. Her birthday is this weekend, so all week long I have been trying to order a carvel cake. No one answered the phone. Finally I reach someone today (Friday). The man was extremely rude. When he spoke he didn't say carvel he yelled it. I explained my situation & asked if I could order a cake for Sunday. He told me it was impossible & quickly hung up. I called back. He acknowledged what he had done, told me he didn’t have time to argue, & quickly hung up again. He did not give me a chance to speak. He did not say goodbye. He spoke to me as if we were long time enemies. I called customer service for carvel & complained. The lady was very nice. They're sending me a coupon. Unfortunately this man owns the carvel store. Do not give him any business. This jerk does not deserve it!!!!!

Today, Carvel products can be found in grocery stores and at franchises throughout the country. Specialties include ice cream cakes in a variety of shapes for just about any occasion. Other sweet treats include ice cream cones, shakes, sandwiches and sundaes.
