BRENHAM, TX -- It's the decision that everybody in Texas has been waiting for. The first Blue Bell flavor to make a comeback is... Homemade Vanilla!
Blue Bell made the big reveal on Instagram Monday.
"I'm frickin' excited as hell! Can I say that on TV? Excited. Love Ice Cream," one clearly excited Blue Bell lover told NewsFix.
The company says it's returning to select areas first. And apparently, that's not us. Austin and Houston won the Blue Bell lottery and will get ice cream in stores on August 31.
North Texas is in Phase Two, although they haven’t announced when that is.
"I'm probably going to have to drive to Houston for that," Andrew Tran said. "Hey, if we got to create a black market for it, we got to do it."
Business at Pokey O's will have to wait before they can scream for the ice cream they need.
"It will still be a long time for Pokey O's before we have Blue Bell, because we will not get our big tubs of ice cream until Brenham is back online. But little baby steps are good for everybody," co-owner Kathy Oszustowicz said.
And they've been missing The Bell big time.
Hey, Blue Blue says they'll reveal another flavor Tuesday. Heck, we don't even care what it is, as long as this "Rocky Road" is over!
