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!

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 as of March 19th:

Chapel Hill
Holly Springs
Wake Forest

My thanks to Blue Bell for offering the free product coupons!

    I've waited years for Blue Bell to come to the Triangle! Key Lime Pie (which was a discontinued seasonal flavor) is not only my favorite flavor made by this brand, but of all time!!

    I haven't met a Blue Bell I haven't liked! Ate Blue Bell all last summer in Asheville, NC. Heard it was headed this way, HURRAHHH! It's here! Don't miss it! Some flavors are seasonal so check it out each time you are in the grocery store.

    Just luv Blue Bell Vanilla in a dish with chopped pecans and either chocolate or carmel syrup on top.

    It is shocking to see what an actual half gallon of ice cream really looks like.

  • arahimib Mar 20, 2012

    I have had Blue Bell ice cream once before and I absolutely loved it. I have not been able to find it around here. If I got the coupon for the free product I would share it with my best friends.

    Faye-- thank you for posting these articles. I can't wait to read them everyday.

    I had Blue Bell for the first time this past summer in Tennessee, it was amazing. I am excited to see it hit more area's of the triangle. It have been in Pittsboro for quite a bit.
