July is National Ice Cream Month, which means that ice cream lovers everywhere are morally obligated to gorge themselves on as much ice cream as possible. Blue Bell Ice Cream has been providing dependably delectable flavors for over a century, and the latest addition only adds to their repertoire. In honor of this national holiday, Blue Bell Creameries has recently come out with Coconut Cream Pie ice cream, and we can't wait to try it.
Blue Bell Ice Cream
Blue Bell Creameries was founded near Houston in Brenham, Texas in 1907, and originally produced both ice cream and butter. The ice cream company's name comes from the native Texas wildflower, the bluebell. In the late 50's, the company decided to fully focus on making ice cream.
Blue Bell flavors come in a wide variety, one for every kind of sweet tooth. The Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream, dutch chocolate, chocolate chip cookie dough, mint chocolate chip and Blue Bell cookies 'n cream are perfect if you're looking for a classic treat.
For those hoping for an explosion of flavors and textures, the Moo-llennium crunch is a tasty combo, consisting of vanilla bean ice cream, dark chocolate chunks, caramel chunks, roasted pecans, almonds and walnuts. Rocky road is another yummy option, made with dark chocolate ice cream, roasted almonds and mini marshmallows. Not to mention, the creamery makes sherbet and frozen snacks, from individual portions to ice cream sandwiches and Mooo bars.
Along with making the best ice cream, this ice cream company loves National Ice Cream Month and celebrates it every year in the best way possible- with a new flavor!
A Delectable New Flavor
In a press release on July 8th, Blue Bell announced that this year's new flavor is Coconut Cream Pie, featuring coconut French ice cream with flakes of coconut, tasty pie crust pieces, whipped topping swirl and toasted coconut.
General sales manager Carl Breed describes it as "the perfect summertime dessert. What better way to cool down at your next barbecue than with a bowl of our new flavor? Coconut Cream Pie is light, and silky smooth. You will find toasted coconut and swirls of whipped topping in every bite. The pie crust pieces tie it all together to capture the taste and texture of a real coconut cream pie."
This quintessential summery dessert is available in half gallon and pints for a limited time, and can be bought in the frozen food section of grocery stores. Even better, Blue Bell Creameries offers drop-offs for the ultimate accessibility to their tasty ice cream. Check out bluebell.com to learn more.
