Blue Bell ice cream giveaway!

Posted March 16, 2012

Blue Bell ice cream is now available to buy in the Triangle and we are celebrating with a giveaway! Enter to win one of TEN free product coupons!

Blue Bell Creameries in Brenham, Texas, has been around since 1907. They sell their ice cream at grocery stores in 20 states and now it is available here in the Triangle.

According to their website, they are the third best-selling ice cream in the country! I have heard great things about Blue Bell and look forward to trying it myself. The flavor choices I saw at my local Lowes Foods look fabulous AND they are a full 1/2 gallon container! Join the Blue Bell Country Club HERE to receive a monthly coupon

Blue Bell will be carried by area Lowes Foods, Kroger and Walmart stores. You will also find Blue Bell at other chain and independent grocery stores, drugstores and convenience stores and it is served at Carraba’s and Outback Steakhouse restaurants. You should be able to find Blue Bell in the following areas starting on March 19th (although I have already found it at Lowes Foods):

Chapel Hill
Holly Springs
Wake Forest

The folks from Blue Bell will be at the WRAL studio next Tuesday to chat about their entry into the Triangle market so be sure to tune in. My thanks to them for offering the free product coupons!

To enter this giveaway for TEN free product coupons good for a 1/2 gallon container of Blue Bell ice cream, post your favorite way to eat ice cream (in a sundae, in a cone,  with colored sprinkles, plain in a cup, etc) in the comments section below.  If you have enjoyed Blue Bell ice cream already and have a favorite Blue Bell ice cream flavor, post that as well.

I'll randomly pick the winners on Wednesday, March 21 at 1:00 pm and post the names soon after 1:00. Good luck!

    I love ice cream in a waffle cone or plain in a bowl. Fresh fruit or raspberry syrup on top. :)

    I had no idea ice cream tasted so delicious until I tried Blue Bell. I had never had it before until my daughter went over to a friends house and they were telling us about it so we went and bought some and now we are hooked!! We love so far the chocolate, vanilla, and our favorite is the cake and cookie dough mix!!

    I haven't had Blue Bell before so looking forward to trying it. I eat my ice cream at home in a bowl but when I go out for ice cream, I splurge for a cone.
