They are now selling Blue Bell Ice Cream in Houston grocery stores, but today, Sept. 21, 2016, it was announced on the news that Blue Bell still has listeria contamination in their ice... More

The tours are still closed, but the gift shop and ice cream parlor are open. You can get a scoop of the world's best ice cream for only $1 per scoop. Not sure when tours will reopen.

We were disappointed that the creamery tour is currently closed, but the museum, ice cream parlor and gift shop are still great. You can't beat $1 scoops of ice cream in the parlor!! I finally found my favorite flavor Pecan Pralines and Cream again.

Blue Bell has an ice cream parlor where you can sample any of their flavors for only $1 per scoop. We took our granddaughter and we all had a great time.

Even though they no longer do tours of the creamery, there is plenty to see. What you don't want to miss is huge scoops of ice cream for $1 each.
