      The Bluebell Ice Cream Factory in Brenham, TX is a great attraction for anyone looking for something to do on a weekday afternoon, particularly those with children. Bluebell is a working ice cream factory, producing the majority of the ice cream for the third largest ice cream manufacturer in the country. On weekdays, between 10 and

      2:30, the factory offers guided tours to members of the public for $3.

      The tour begins with a short video about the history of the factory and Bluebell ice cream in general. Then it proceeds to several observation rooms where you can see the factory floor through large windows. Tour guides explain what is being made in ...


      • each room and show the different processes involved in making a carton of Bluebell ice cream, along with sharing various tidbits and anecdotes about the company (for example: although Bluebell doesn’t ship to Washington D.C., ice cream was brought in especially for George Bush Sr. during his presidency).

        The tour lasts about 45 minutes and always ends with

        a free serving of ice cream.

        In addition to the tours, Bluebell Ice Cream Factory has an ice cream parlor which is open to the public 6 days a week where you can buy ice cream and beverages and purchase Blue Bell merchandise.

        This is a great place to stop on a vacation to Texas or to visit on a lazy summer day.

    Have been a customer of yours forever. Born and raised in the grocery business and now retired. I can remember my father telling me years ago that Blue Bell Icream was the best thing since sliced bread. We purchased 1 1 2 gallons today at Kroger 1 Happy Tracks 1 Banana nut . When we got home my wife gat a small bowl of the Banana Nut and told me that it had no flavor. I didn`t believe her and tried some myself. It had very little Banana flavor at all and seemed bland. Surely not the Banana Nut we have known in the past. the code on the bottom of the carton is 030912B . Now the Happy Tracks is out of sight. Great………………. Just thought you would like to know. Sincerely, Wallace Forsyth

    How come the new flavors are never put into smaller containers for single people or small families? I would love to buy more flavors but do not have room the more than 1 or 2 of the large containers. Besides, my small family gets tired of the big carton or it gets freezer burn before we can finish the large container. I have heard many of my friends express the same concerns.

    I am the school secretary at Anna B. Kelso Elementary, part of Houston Independent School District. Our school would like to have a Popcicle Social tentatively scheduled for August 21. My question is how or could I obtain twin popcicles at a discount rate from your company. We are in need of at least one thousand twin pops.

    Dear Bluebell Just FYI……. I have a question about quality control, I know your company takes extraordinary care being sure your product is as Perfect as you can get. We love your wide variety and flavors and taste of Blue Bell Ice cream. Lately, we have been purchasing Strawberries Homemade Vanilla quite often. This last batch of Strawberries Homemade Vanilla had Air pockets inside the 1 2 Gallon Carton.The first carton had a very big air pocket. It was baseball size of a air pocket inside the container? Not Softball size, just about the size of a regular Baseball. Is there a reason? We purchased another 1 2 Gallon and the second container had only small size air pockets about the size of marbles? The third and fourth one 1 2 gallon size are the same as the second one? Take care, God Bless You and Yours. Thank you for your time and attention. Sid Thacker one of your many fans Bluebell Ice Cream is great, just can`t get enough email address sidneythacker yahoo.com

    I have been loving your ice cream for about 6 months now and I bet your stocks have gone way up My question is haw can I send my 90 year old mother some. This would be a bucket list if she ever tasted it She lives in a itty bitty town in southern Michigan. I would love some advise please this is the best in the WORLD. I eat the home made Vanilla and it reminds me of when I was a child the adults would put the salt in and turn the handle for what seemed like hours thank you for the joy you bring with your Ice Cream Susie Mulder
