When no one was looking, Lex Luthor took forty Freezy "The Talking Cakes." He took 40 cakes. That's as many as four tens. And that's terrible.

Woah, Carvel still exists? I haven't lived in the NYC area since the '80s and I assumed that they were long gone.

I just bought a Carvel Hello Kitty ice cream cake.

True confession: it wasn’t even anyone's birthday or anything. I just saw it in the supermarket and it was an impulse buy. I am not ashamed.

ok well maybe a little ashamed but man it was good
