Grab your spoon and the biggest bowl you have, Texas-based Blue Bell Creamery is bringing back a limited time fan favorite for national ice cream month. It's a happy day for cookie-lovers because Milk & Cookies ice cream is out of retirement. Available in half-gallon and pint sizes, the ice cream flavor features delicious Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream combined with chocolate chip cookies.
Blue Bell Brings Back Milk & Cookies Ice Cream Flavor
According to Blue Bell Creamery, the company usually takes one flavor out of retirement or creates a new flavor for National ice cream month. "The flavor has not been available in stores for several years," Jimmy Lawhorn, Blue Bell's vice president of sales and marketing, said in a news release. "Returning flavors are as exciting as a new flavor because so many of our fans contact us every day with requests asking to bring back their favorite."
According to the International Dairy Foods Association, in 1984 President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month sharing the proclamation that "ice cream is a nutritious and wholesome food, enjoyed by over ninety percent of the people in the United States. It enjoys a reputation as the perfect dessert and snack food...I call upon the people of the United States to observe these events with appropriate ceremonies and activities."
