Maybe they don't have the tours going but they still have $1 ice cream, and beautiful magnolia blossoms.

Miss not being able to do he factory tours. They also charge per scoop of ice cream, where it was free with your tour.

Sorry to find out they are not doing tours of the creamery. We came to Brenham just for that. The gift shop is nice.

Great place to go see. They are not back to giving tours of the plant, but there is still plenty to see. And you can't beat $1 scoops of any flavor blue belle ice cream.

$1 scoops - enough said! My family has been feeling deprived because our favorites flavors are not yet back on the shelf! They had at least 2 dos. Flavors available. The staff is so courteous but I have to say everyone in Brenham is!

We stopped in to see what all our Texas friends were talking about with Blue Bell. It did not disappoint! A BIG scoop of ice cream was only a dollar! Great value!

I was told that the tour of the plant, the museum, and the free sample haven't been reopened. What is left is a Texas baseball coach hall-of-fame, and a store with mostly advertisements for BB. i.e. tee-shirts,... More
