DALLAS — Nothing beats the heat like a scoop of ice cream, but with summer on the horizon the news on Texas ice cream has all been bad! Yeah we’re still possibly months away from having Blue Bell back on the shelves!

Well, here’s some news that should cheer you up! The folks over at Ben & Jerry’s have scooped up two exclusive flavors just for the Lone Star State!

“The two flavors are the Barbecue Peach. We have an ancho peach ice cream with peaches and barbecue caramel swirl.” explained Ben & Jerry’s rep Jana Steele, “and then we have a Bourbon Pecan Pie which is a little more savory!”

Sounds awesome! And what’s more awesome, you can try ‘em and decide the newest flavor to hit Texas shelves!

“We’re actually in Dallas until the sixth of next month, so you can tweet us @BenJerrysTexas if you want to try these flavors.” said Jana, “Tell us where you want us to go and we’re dong office visits all day long and getting people to these flavors and cast their vote!”

Well the CW33 crew got a chance to try these exclusives and determine which one will be on the shelves, and just about everyone agreed, they want Bourbon Pecan Pie!

But you can make your voice heard, too! Look for the truck all month long and make a little Texas flavor history!
