Took the guided tour of the Blue Bell creamery to get an education on how their superb product is produced. After a 35 minute tour we were blessed with a wonderful treat of free Blue Bell ice cream. Interesting to see ice cream production with a knowledgeable person explaining all the steps involved. Learned it takes milk from 60,000 cows... More

We didn't tour the ice cream plant this time. We went to get some ice cream. They let you have taste tests. The ice cream was very good at a good price. There was a nice gift shop, too.

A few changes since our last visit with our Girl Scouts several decades ago. Visited with our now adult daughter and enjoyed it even more! The changes: it now costs for the tour but you get a huge scoop of one of their 13 awesome flavors at the end of the tour. Our tour lasted about 35 minutes. Our guide,... More

We stopped here mostly to stretch our legs but are very happy we did. The creamery offers a little tour of the plant....amazing to see the machinery, conveyor belts, etc. Then, there are free samples-how many do you want-plus a scoop on your desired flavor. Nice little diversion.

The tour was wonderful led by Dottie our guide. It was a lot of fun, educational, and in the end extremely tasty. At the end of the tour we each got to try 32 flavors of ice cream, and a scoop to eat. There are new flavors coming out soon and I can't wait to taste those. Next time we... More

Blue Bell is what Brenham is known for and really, who doesn't like ice cream? The tour was about 30 minutes and fairly educational. Free cup of ice cream at the end of the tour was a bonus. Try the Mardis Gras King Cake flavor, sweet and tasty! There are no pictures allowed n the tour, but plenty of other... More

An awesome place to stop by, great tour with a great guide who was very friendly and knowledgable. A generous serve of any of their ice cream flavours at the end really topped it off, very glad we stumbled across it. Good for all ages, very accessible to elderly / disabled

Whenever my wife & I are in Brenham, the first place we always go is the Blue Bell Creamery. The creamery tour never gets old, the staff is friendly & informative, but the best part of the tour is at the end when you get a serving of ice cream. I don't know why but the ice cream always tastes... More
