MALMÖ, Sweden — Oatly Group AB announced a new national partnership with Carvel, the cult classic ice cream shoppe best known for its soft serve and character cakes.

Oatly’s 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 the time-honored ice cream shoppe’s signature menu items. With its innovative approach to creating oat-based products, Oatly is able to deliver a delightful range of premium, non-dairy frozen desserts that don’t compromise on great taste or texture.

“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 oat milk-based, non-dairy frozen desserts available in Carvel shoppes. We’re excited that with the inclusion of our 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.”

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 items, such as Oatly Chocolate, Mint and Cold Brew Soft Serve.

“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.”
