Free ice cream at Carvel today!

If you’re into free or low-cost ice cream or are feeling aggrieved that you missed yesterday’s 31 cent Scoop Night at Baskin Robbins, you can still get an ice cream handout.

Carvel is promoting a new low-fat ice cream today with freebies. All day long, participating Carvel locations are giving each customer a free 3.5 ounce serving of the low-fat stuff, which comes with a choice of twelve flavor shots. (Acai Berry, Banana, Black Raspberry, Blueberry, Bubble Gum, Cotton Candy, Mango, Mint, Orange, Peach, Pistachio and Pomegranate.) According to a press release, the product has 75% less fat and 30% fewer calories than the standard soft-serve stuff.

According to the brand’s Facebook page, Fudgie the Whale is making appearances at some Carvel locations as well. You can click the link to “like” Carvel on Facebook and keep abreast of all their ice cream promotions. The event has a lower number of RSVPs than yesterday’s Scoop Night, so there will also probably be a shorter wait.
