This is an awesome experience for all ages... People From 2-100+ Years old will enjoy the tour on this Blue Bell facility. In the ticket area they have a gallery with the history of Blue Bell with pictures, machinery and a lot of stuff from the time the family company started. You can have your own paper-made ice cream salesman hat and while you wait for your 45 min tour time (when you buy the ticket they will give you the time you tour will start) . You will be able to see all the process to make the more delicious ice cream...and the best part ....at the end...you will have a free ice cream. This tour is only available on week days. No Saturday tours. I visited on spring break mid April) and the weather was just perfect !

This tour was a fun stop. You get to see the production line for several flavors of ice cream, and then a sample at the end of the tour. I will never look at a gallon of ice cream the same again. Who knew that the way they get the ice cream to the very top of the containers is by freezing them upside down???

if you have seen other food processing/manufactoring facilities before its nothing to exciting, but it is a nice stop if you are already close by or using 290 to get to/from Houston etc .... admission price is reasonable and includes a scoop of ice cream at the end ... tour guy was very enthusiastic

We made it here just in time for the 10 AM tour. The ticket people were very nice and they have lots of exhibits to look through when waiting for the tour to start. The lady who did our tour seemed very nice and knowledgeable about the company, but my husband who has engineering background wished there was more info on the machines themselves. You get a free scoop of ice cream at the end. You can purchase extra scoops for $1, but they really are HUGE scoops.
