So how would you like to be among the first to taste it? For FREE?
I've got coupons for five free half-gallons of Blue Bell to give away to five blog readers.
Tell me your favorite flavor of ice cream and you'll be entered to win. If you've ever tasted Blue Bell, I'd love to hear about that, too.
I'll pick the winners at random Friday morning and announce them on the blog. With any luck, the post office will get the coupons to the winners in time to get your free Blue Bell asap.
And if you don't happen to win one of my free half-gallons, don't despair. My colleague Andea Weigl, who writes our food blog Mouthful, will be giving away five more half-gallons in the coming weeks.
Blue Bell ice cream will be sold in Kroger, Lowes Foods and Walmart stores in the Triangle, along with some independent grocery stores, drugstores and convenience stores.
It's the third best-selling ice cream in the country and offers 17 standard flavors as well as 30 limited-edition flavors. The company was founded as The Brenham Creamery Co. in 1907 in Brenham, about 70 miles northwest of Houston.
