We could wax poetic about Blue Bell all day, and that's because we have on numerous occasions. There's never a day more exciting than when Blue Bell announces its newest seasonal release; in fact, it might even be more exciting than covering the states Blue Bell will distribute to in 2018. However, with the good comes the bad, something we learned when Blue Bell announced it sold out of Christmas Cookies just shy of December.
Now, we caught wind of a new Blue Bell seasonal release on Instagram and it has us asking the ever-important question: Wait, is this in season?
I don't know about y'all, but I could eat any flavor you place in front of me. However, is Spiced Pumpkin Pecan, with its spiced pumpkin ice cream and tasty sugar-coated pecans with a cinnamon-honey-praline sauce, a very... holiday flavor?
Pecans in Texans are a staple during the holiday season, whether you make Pecan Snowball Cookies or you can't give up pecan pie for Christmas. The pumpkin is off-putting to some, with some Instagram comments stating that the release is, "better later than never."
However, on Facebook, most distressed fans are just looking for Christmas Cookies on their store shelves. While it won't be made until 2018, there are a few huge fans of Spiced Pumpkin Pecan that have had their days made. It could be July, and they'd love this flavor anyways!
The lesson here is that whenever we're blessed with a new release from Brenham's best creamery, it's a good day.
