Those who fiend for all things Nutella will soon be able to buy it in ice cream form— no, not at the Nutella Bar — but at Carvel locations across the nation. The dessert chain is partnering with Ferrero (the manufacturers of Nutella) to launch a line of limited edition ice creams that will be available from June 30 to September 30.
According to a press release (below), customers will be able to purchase Nutella-flavored soft serve as well as scoops of chocolate ice cream layered with the hazelnut spread and "Carvel Crunchies" and topped with Nutella. Carvel will also offer a couple of Nutella sundaes featuring the special soft serve layered with items like banana slices, whipped cream, crunchies, and well, more Nutella. Unfortunately, it doesn't look the sundaes will come with Nutella Cronut Holes because that would just make everyone's mind explode. See the press release:
