Founded in Texas of 1907, Blue Bell made ice cream in small, hand-blended batches until 1936. Their main flavors were chocolate, strawberry and vanilla, but the company began taking suggestions from their customers for new flavors.
Ranked as one of the top ice cream manufacturers in the country, Blue Bell brings in fresh cream, fruits and all-natural extracts from local farmers. There are over 66 flavors of Blue Bell ice cream as of 2015, including the fan-recommended favorites of Coconut Fudge, Orange Swirl, Lemon Bliss and Spiced Pumpkin Pecan for the holidays.
Since Blue Bell was founded in the southern United States, several of its ice cream flavors honor the goodness of southern summers. Some of its most popular southern flavors include Southern Hospitality, a blend of Homemade Vanilla, pineapple chunks, strawberry sauce, and roasted pecans, and Homemade in the Shade, a combination of Homemade Vanilla with swirls of chocolate fudge sauce and chocolate chunks.
