CINNABON® Carvel Debuts New Oatly Lineup®

Oatly Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts Roll Out as Carvel’s First Oatmilk-Based Menu Items Available In-Shoppe

ATLANTA (Jan. 22, 2024) – Carvel® today announced a partnership with Oatly, the world’s original and largest oatmilk company, to bring a new non-dairy lineup to Carvel shoppes. Oatly non-dairy frozen desserts are now available at nearly 300 Carvel shoppes across 18 states in the U.S., giving guests a delicious, dairy-free way to experience Carvel’s classic treats.

“We are thrilled to bring Oatly products to Carvel,” said Jim Salerno, Chief Brand Officer at Carvel. “As The Original Soft Serve™, we want to ensure guests enjoy the classic flavors and nostalgia of Carvel while we continue to innovate and expand to new guests. Oatly is the latest way we are breaking through to bring our guests a new offering we know there is a lot of excitement behind.”

Carvel shoppes will be the first to offer Oatly Frozen Dessert Cakes. Carvel’s classic cakes are always prepared in-shoppe, making any cake customizable with the available flavors of Oatly soft serve. Cookie Puss® made with Oatly, anyone?

Menu items available now at participating Carvel locations nationwide include:

  • Oatly Strawberry Soft Serve
  • Oatly Cookies & Cream Scooped
  • Oatly Chocolate Peanut Butter Scooped
  • Flying Saucer Sandwiches made with Oatly
  • Frozen Dessert Cakes made with Oatly

Select locations will feature additional menu offerings such as Oatly Chocolate, Mint and Cold Brew Soft Serve. Guests can check their local shoppe to see what flavors are being offered.

“Carvel's iconic presence and longstanding success in the industry serve as a testament to its commitment to quality,” said Drew Martin, EVP Commercial Sales, Oatly North America. “With ice cream traditionally being reliant on cow’s dairy, we’re honored to collaborate with Carvel and present the first oatmilk-based, non-dairy frozen desserts available in Carvel shoppes. We’re excited that with the inclusion of these new menu items, all guests, including those with dairy allergies* or who have certain dietary preferences, can enjoy an Oatly twist on Carvel’s classic frozen favorites.”
