It's a great way to spend the day and it's very inexpensive :)! The tour took about 20-30 minutes and then we had Blue Bell ice cream. It's out in the middle of no where but it was a cheap way to keep the brother entertained :)!

The Blue Bell factory tour is not too long but informative. Our guide was a young girl on summer break whose father worked in the factory. Nice that the business helps out the young people. The ice cream at the end of the tour was generous portions and delicious. I will be buying the new flavor that I tried.

Yes, it is near the middle of nowhere. But for the best vitamin I you have ever tasted this is your place. We skipped the tour of the creamery and headed straight to the one dollar a scoop ice cream. The scoop is hugh and the ice cream lounge is clean and comfortable. We are stopping on our back to... More

The Blue Bell Factory Tour was really fascinating! The tour guides clearly explained the ice cream making process. In the end, everybody got a big cup full of ice cream! It was great

Took the grandkids on the factory tour and we all enjoyed it. Place was absolutely clean. Ice cream at end of tour could not have been fresher. Not far from Austin or Houston but worth the trip.

I visited today with my son and 3 others moms and children. There are 2 parking lots- the first one you come to from the highway is a little on the small side but don't worry, there's a huge one just past the factory. Parking is free. Tickets are purchased inside for $6 per adult and $4 per child. Credit... More

If you are within a 2 hour drive of this place, it is worth a side trip. The factory Is huge and the tour is short. The best part is the ice cream parlor. If you go on a tour it is free for the small admission price; otherwise you can buy a generous scoop for $1. You don't have... More

The tour was interesting, but nothing extraordinary. I took my little one and had no issue at all with the stroller or getting around. Everyone was super nice. :) Getting free ice cream at the end of the tour was fun, but I didn't have to drive that far to get ice cream so I'm not incorporating that into my... More

Visitor-pleasing hospitality--from smiling young ticket sellers (soldout online) to generous scoop of 1 in 16 flavors @ end, tour's recommended to all ages. Family-friendly, family-run enterprise closes weekends out of respect to family time. Fact-filled guides take questions, herd wayward children gracefully & politely request phones stowed, employees allowed to pass group. Lobby displays fill distribution & Kruse family gaps.... More

The tour was great! Very informative and exciting to see how our favorite ice cream is made! I found it amazing how absolutely clean this facility was and to the lengths Bluebell goes to ensure such a quality product!
