We Wait All Year for Blue Bell's Newest Holiday Releases

If there are a few rules for eating like a Texan, having a carton of Blue Bell in your freezer is a necessity. While the standby flavors are on store shelves all year long, there's something special about celebrating the seasons with Blue Bell's special seasonal releases. Whether they bring you one step closer to summer, 4th of July, or hunting season, Texas' favorite ice cream shop sure knows how to keep us guessing and always excited for the next release.

This year, we're excited to share that Blue Bell's Peppermint and Peppermint Bark flavors are officially on store shelves.

Just to recap, the Peppermint is a cool peppermint ice cream that's flecked with peppermint candy pieces. There's nothing like a good crunch in a carton of smooth, creamy Blue Bell.

The Peppermint Bark is a refreshing mint ice cream that features dark chocolate chunks and white chocolate chunks, also flecked with crushed peppermint candies. How delicious does that sound? Of course, all Blue Bell flavors just divine, but we have some fun ideas for using these two new flavors.

Maybe this is the year you try Peppermint Milkshakes, with our handy milkshake guide. Maybe you'll slap it between two cookies and make Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches. Our cookies of choice for a peppermint ice cream? Sugar cookies! There's no wrong way to eat peppermint ice cream, but a fill our easy vodka pie crust with it, and stick it in the freezer for Peppermint Ice Cream Pie.
