A media representative for Carvel told FOX Business the brand’s Cookie Butter Crunchies are the second nonchocolate flavor the ice cream company has made, and it follows the success of Carvel’s Churro Crunchies from July 2021. 

The Cookie Butter Crunchies are made from a vanilla crunch and are blended with Biscoff cookie crumbles and a "sweet vanilla bonnet shell." It can be paired with Carvel’s returning Cookie Butter Ice Cream, which customers might remember from spring 2018.
