Top 10 Untold Truths of Blue Bell Ice Cream


Blue Bell has a devoted base of loyal customers
who can’t live without their ice cream. You might have one of their famous half-gallon
containers in your freezer right now. If so, then get yourself a scoop or two of what you
love the most and enjoy this list of the Top 10 Untold Truths of Blue Bell Ice Cream. Blue Bell Creameries wasn’t their original
name Hold your spoon; you don’t want to drop
any of that precious ice cream. Yes, the name that makes your mouth water when hearing it,
wasn’t what the company was first called. The first name they chose to call themselves
didn’t roll off the tongue quite the same as Blue Bell Creameries does. What’s in
a name? Sometimes a name can be so challenging to remember that people give up. Almost all
of the products that you buy at the store usually have short little catchy names. Companies
want to make sure you remember who they are, and the best way to do that is by having a
snappy name. Blue Bell Creameries was first called the Brenham Creamery Company. Founded
in 1907 in Brenham, Texas, the original monicker lasted for over 20 years. Hey kids, who wants
some Brenham? That doesn’t sound right. Does it? No, it doesn’t. Blue Bell rolls
off the tongue better than Brenham. The name change was made, and it just might be one
of the reasons why they’re so successful to this day. Oh, and making some of the best
ice cream on the planet also had something to do with that success. Blue Bell bakes their own cookies for Cookies
n Cream Cookies n Cream is a favorite among many ice
cream aficionados. Who can not fall in love with creamy ice cream and chocolatey bits
of cookies? Just hearing those words has to make your mouth water. Don’t drool all over
yourself; we’re nowhere near done yet. It’s okay if you need to get up and get yourself
some more ice cream. No one can sit through all of this without at least a couple of scoops
of their favorite creamy frozen dessert. Blue Bell Originally used Oreo cookies in their
Cookies n Cream. The taste of Oreos paired exceptionally well with their high-quality
ice cream, but there was a big problem with the cookies. Blue Bell Creameries had to pay
people to dismantle the Oreo cookies. Do you think you’re an expert at twisting an Oreo
apart? Imagine how good you would be if that was your job all day long. It proved to be
too costly for Blue Bell to pay people to disassemble Oreo cookies, so they decided
to make their own. Today, Blue Bell makes every single cookie on-site found in their
Cookies n Cream ice cream. Not only are they skilled ice cream makers, but you can add
bakers to that list as well. Blue Bell’s top seller Everyone wants to feel as if their favorite
ice cream is as unique as they are. Being unique is one of the driving forces behind
human nature. Why else would anyone get a mohawk, dye it purple or green and take all
that time to form it into spikes? The desire to be seen as an individual is as human as
it comes. That’s why people like to reach for products off of the store shelf that aren’t
run of the mill. The same is true when it comes to ice cream, and Blue Bell makes sure
they produce products for a wide variety of pallets. The top-selling ice cream might be
a shock to many. So shocking, that quite a few of you might not believe it. What’s
the number one best selling ice cream Blue Bell produces? Homemade Vanilla sells more
than any other variety. Over half of the ice cream Blue Bell makes and sells is Homemade
Vanilla. Who would’ve thought that Rocky Road or Cookie Two Step would be outdone by
vanilla? Vanilla is the plain Jane of the ice cream world, and it’s hard to believe
that it sells more than anything else. Blue Bell’s Banana Pudding ice cream has a long
way to go before it can claim the top spot. It will take quite a few banana peels to make
Homemade Vanilla slide down the list. Blue Bell’s original product wasn’t ice
cream So you can’t imagine living your life without
Blue Bell ice cream. However, there was a time in the not so distant past that Blue
Bell didn’t make ice cream at all. That’s right; in the beginning, they didn’t produce
a single spoonful of ice cream. That feeling in your stomach is real and it’s called
reflected sadness. You now realize that at one point, there was a world without Blue
Bell ice cream. That world had to be so sad and depressing. How could anyone live without
knowing they had a tub of delicious ice cream in their freezer waiting to get them through
the good and bad times? So, what did Blue Bell make if they weren’t churning out tub
after tub of ice cream? The hard-working people at the creamery were originally making butter
instead of ice cream. At the time, there was an overabundance of cream, and the good folks
at what would soon become Blue Bell were churning it into butter. A few years later, they would
begin making ice cream, but butter was also still being produced at the factory. It wouldn’t
be until the late 50s that butter production would cease completely and Blue Bell would
focus all of their efforts on ice cream. The origins of their Blue Bell name isn’t
what most people think Have you ever found yourself spoon feeding
yourself Blue Bell straight from the tub while wondering how they ever came up with that
name? Did they at one time have a cow named Blue Bell? Maybe the factory at one time had
a blue bell, and it rang to tell the workers when it was lunchtime? There have been dozens
of dozens of theories as to what’s behind the Blue Bell name. Well, all of them are
wrong. Here’s the real deal. Blue Bell is the name of a Texas wildflower that grows
wild all around the creamery in Brenham, Texas. These wildflowers grow, well, like wildflowers,
and they are all over the place. You can’t go anywhere near the creamery without seeing
the beautiful purplish color of the flowers. Yes, the wildflowers are more of a purple
than they are blue. Maybe whoever named the wildflowers was a little bit color blind.
So the name Blue Bell comes from a flower and not the color of the bell around the first
cow they ever milked. Blue Bell’s newest flavors No one can ever say that the good folks over
at Blue Bell Creameries are lazy. Blue Bell has a dedicated research and development staff
who are constantly churning out new flavors of ice cream that people love. It might be
hard for some to believe, but there are those out there who get tired of the flavors currently
on the freezer shelf. How much ice cream does a person have to eat before they get bored
of the over a dozen flavors that Blue Bell already makes? No, no one is questioning your
dietary choices. But if you fall into this category of flavor boredom, then you’re
going to want to head right out to the store immediately and buy both Blue Bell’s Salted
Caramel Cookie and Happy Tracks ice cream. Why? Because both of these flavors are only
available for a limited time. If you put off buying either of these, then it might be too
late the next time you’re in the mood to eat ice cream. Do yourself a favor and avoid
future regret by going to the store right now and buying a tub of each. Actually, hold
on – at least wait until the video’s over – but promise yourself that after you’re
done watching that you’ll run right out to the store and get yourself a container
each of these two limited release Blue Bell ice cream products. It’s still a half gallon It seems that every year companies are trying
to give us less product for more money. The packages on supermarket shelves are constantly
getting smaller while the prices keep going upward. That’s not the case when it comes
to Blue Bell ice cream. You won’t see them cutting the size of their tubs. There are
a million reasons why companies are trying to give customers less. Sometimes it’s the
desire to turn an even bigger profit, while other times they are appeasing special interest
groups who want to limit the size of packaged food items. Anyone who thinks it’s a good
idea to make the tubs of ice cream smaller to reduce the waistlines of the public seems
to forget that people can easily buy two tubs. You can fill a whole cart so full of ice cream
that it takes more than one person to push it to the cash register. If there was one
lesson to be learned, it’s that no one should get in the way of people who have ice cream
floating through their veins. You won’t ever have to worry about Blue Bell making
the size of your ice cream containers smaller. Blue Bell continues to sell their ice cream
in true half-gallon containers. The company has even said that they would raise the price
before reducing the size of the Blue Bell tub. So you’ll always have plenty of ice
cream to share with your friends, family, and neighbors. Who are we kidding? You’re
not going to share something as good as Blue Bell with any of those people. You’re going
to keep all the ice cream to yourself. Mardi Gras King Cake Ice Cream Mardi Gras is right around the corner, and
you better keep an eye on the calendar. Every year people flock to New Orleans to celebrate
and to watch the Mardi Gras parade. There’s a whole lot of fun and mischief going on throughout
the city during Mardi Gras festivities. You don’t need to be in New Orleans to celebrate,
but, let’s face it, that is the place to be during Mardi Gras. If you’re aren’t
there, then don’t sweat it. Blue Bell has a new flavor that will make you feel like
you’re in the French Quarter with a King Cake in your hand. Mardi Gras King Cake ice
cream has hit the shelves nationwide just in time for everyone to celebrate. Don’t
worry, you won’t bite into any small plastic figure while enjoying spoon after spoon of
this cinnamon cake-flavored ice cream. Traditionally, a King Cake includes a small plastic baby
figurine and the person who received the piece with the figurine in it would have to host
the next get-together. Avoiding tradition, the smart people over at Blue Bell have made
the wise decision not to include any trinkets or dolls. No doubt their lawyers probably
said it was a bad idea to include any plastic parts in their ice cream. Mardi Gras King
Cake ice cream is everything you love about King Cake without the worry of chipping a
tooth. Blue Bell ships no matter where you are So, you’re heartbroken about having to leave
after a great visit to the state of Texas. What are you going to miss the most about
Texas? The people? Maybe you’ll miss the world-famous Texas accent. Then again, perhaps
what you’ll miss more than anything else are the cowboy boots or 10-gallon hats. Nope,
you’re not going to miss any of those things the most. The one thing that you’ll cry
a river over is your favorite Blue Bell ice cream. How will you ever go a single day without
knowing there’s a half-gallon container of Blue Bell ice cream in your freezer? The
thought of that alone has to bring you to tears. Well don’t worry; Blue Bell will
ship their ice cream to you through the mail. How in the world can they ship ice cream in
the mail? No, you won’t end up with a bucket of melted ice cream. The company behind Blue
Bell has come up with the perfect way of shipping ice cream so it doesn’t melt. Blue Bell
uses several pounds of dry ice to make sure your ice cream remains frozen during transit.
So it doesn’t matter if your local supermarket stocks its shelves with Blue Bell ice cream
or not. The only thing that matters is that you live in a place with a zip code. Licking containers of Blue Bell became a trend Leave it to the internet to gross people out
and get everyone to do stupid stunts. You may have heard about two such events that
involved a young lady and a man both licking containers of Blue Bell and putting it back
on the shelf. Each of the incidents was separate, but they were both motivated by the same online
trend. It seems some people thought it would be cool to lick a container of Blue Bell and
put it back on the shelf. We know it happened because they filmed their dubious deed and
shared the video on the internet. It wasn’t long before these videos went viral and everyone
was wondering if their Blue Bell ice cream was licked before purchasing it. Much to
the surprise of many YouTubers, licking ice cream and putting it back on the shelf is
illegal. Yes, at least one person so far has been charged with a crime. Don’t even think
about following this crazy trend. Ok so maybe it’s hard to resist wanting a lick of something
as good as Blue Bell ice cream, but whatever you do, pay for it first! No one wants to
have to question if anything’s been done to their ice cream before they open the lid.
Tampering with food is illegal and for good reason. When it comes ice cream pranks, stick
to brain freeze challenges or something. That’s a much better use for a tub of delicious Blue
Bell ice cream. Tap on another great video and to all our
