The countdown has begun. Check the clock to the right to see how many days and hours you have to enjoy the following before Carousel closes for the winter. Sad, sad, sad. So hurry, hurry, hurry!
Mouthwatering soft-serve ice cream (served too many ways to count, flavors galore) ... heavenly floats ... scrumptous sundaes ... thick and creamy shakes with your favorite toppings mixed in (Oreo cookies perhaps?) ... hot fudge cake ... Hawaiian Ice ... seasonal specials like pumpkin-flavored ice cream (has a cult-like following) ... New York style hot dogs (slaw and mustard?) ... corn dogs ... sea salt fries (you'll think you're on the boardwalk at the beach) ... and so much more.
Carousel served its first customers in 1999. Lots of things have changed since then, including a building expansion and snow machine on the roof (compliments the bubble maker), but some things will always stay the same, like the top notch ingredients used ... the way we like to treat customers (like family) ... and the laid-back, family-friendly, slightly funky (monkey?) atmosphere.
If you're on Facebook, please connect with us there (link on the right). That way we can keep in touch, and you can be the first to know about new flavors, specials, events, happenings, shennanigans, and ... well, you'll find out.
Thanks for stopping by online. We hope to see you in person real soon (dogs welcome - they'll love our Pup Cups!).
Dennis, Carl and the Carousel crew
Named Best Ice Cream for the fourth consecutive year by readers of Warrenton Lifestyle magazine. From the magazine (Aug 2009 edition):
The only thing still competing with the variety of choices available at Carousel Frozen Treats is the number of ways people spelled "Carousel" on their ballots (16 this year!). For the fourth consecutive year, Carousel wins the award for best ice cream in Warrenton. Owners Dennis Bachetti and Carl Norskog have created a festive atmosphere to serve ice cream with all the modern toppings in a somewhat nostalgic setting. There is a reason why thee are long lines on weekend nights (don't worry, they move fast) - people are willing to wait for the reward at the end of the rainbow. Don't forget they offer hot dogs, French fries, and, according to the Publisher, "the best corn dogs on the planet!" Carousel is located in Waterloo Station.
