The tour of the factory was a fun one we got to see all the different production stations and how everything was made. The tour guide was very educated on the factory and answered everyone's questions. Also at the end you get to enjoy some ice cream and possibly try flavors you have never seen.

We pleasantly were able to get in on a tour within 20 minutes of our arrival, which gave us time to look over the historical display in the greeting area. Our tour group leader was a young lady who was friendly and well-versed in her job, but needed some tips on speech as she ran quickly and through her spiel,... More

Informative tour and the Ice Cream is great! You can just visit the parlor to enjoy the wonderful Ice Cream at a very reasonable price, with the bonus of many articles to read about the Blue Bell story.

Interesting tour for all ages of how ice cream & ice cream treats are made. Learn some fun dacts. Tour lasts about 35 - 40 minutes. Free ice cream at the end! High traffic & lots of children on weekends & holidays. You can pre-order tickets online to avoid a wait when you get there.

Today I visited the Blue Bell Creamery during a little spring break getaway. What fun! It was great to go on tour and actually see how the ice cream is made and packaged. Many times you go on factory yours and don't see anything but machinery and see pictures. We also got free samples and they are full chip size.... More

We had a wonderful time at the Blue Bell Creamery. The staff is very friendly and our tour guide had a bubbly personality and was very knowledgeable. The best part of course was the ice cream tasting at the end!
