If you want to live the true Texan experience, you need to try Blue Bell ice cream. And even though you can find it everywhere, there's nothing like getting it straight from the source! It is a very fun thing to do with children as they can learn about the process and see it being made right in front of... More

Sure a lot of changes coming to Blue Bell Creameries. It seems with all the problems that Blue Bell will with stand the test of time. Everyone I know can't wait to get their hands on their beloved ice cream.

I understand Bluebell is just getting back into the swing of things, so we really didn't expect much, but the people who worked there were all so very apologetic and really friendly! The people in the museum, the lady running the gift shop, the workers we passed in the parking lot, they were all very accommodating. We will be back... More

The tour was really informative and the whole family enjoyed it. At the end you get to buy little cups of all of the flavours and there is a great souvenir shop. This is now our favourite ice cream!!

We waked into the visitors center which had posted a sign taped to the glass doors. It said the only thing open was the gift store; that the ice cream parlor would be closed until further notice. There was no one inside, anywhere. No visitors, no greeters, nobody. We were a bit confused because it was not obvious where to... More

Nothing like Blue Bell Ice Cream. Seemed strange to go to the plant while it is being serviced. However, the gift shop was open and staffed with positive smiling Blue Bell staff. Even now it is a great place to visit and when they reopen a great place to taste Texas Best Ice Cream!

It's popular that's for sure. This is the best factory made ice cream in the nation and a proud Texas establishment.

This is well worth a visit for every Texan. If you want to understand the Texas culture, visiting the Blue Bell Ice Cream Factory is a must. The ice cream factory tour is not that long (making ice cream isn't too complicated) and the best part is the free ice cream at the end!
