Didn't Carvel also have a birthday club?

I've just sent Carvel, and several other ice cream chains, that very question. I'll let you know what I find out.

The results are starting to come in, and here's what Ben & Jerry's has to say:
Quote:
We do not have a birthday club because almost all of our Scoop Shops are independently owned and can choose whether or not to honor the "free birthday scoop" idea. Some shops have their own birthday programs, but since not all of them do we don't publicize a national birthday club. We hope this clears up any confusion.
Guess this means we'll have to ask each Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shop individually!

Carvel never did answer me, but looking on the web they seem to have had something called Club Carvel with over 200,000 members at some point; it's mentioned in a press release. (Not to be confused with another Club Carvel set in a city named Carvel.) Other then that I can't find any more references; my guess is they scrapped the program.

Thanks to this thread on Metafilter, I found a few more restaurants that offer free ice cream on your birthday, plus a printable birthday coupon from Carvel.

It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it

Funny, this last weekend we stopped in a Carvel place next to the restaurant we were at with the kids, and I started chatting with one of the service people. The conversation was mostly about the difficult part of the job being not eating and tasting the stuff. Another "tough job" in the ice cream world.

I am vexed. I signed up with any of the ice cream birthday clubs that accepted adults, but haven't received any of my promised coupons and my birthday is next week
