The observation deck was very interesting. We asked the host lots of questions and he was extremely knowledgeable on the product and the production. Only $1.00 for a scoop of ice cream is a great deal. No wonder the locals visit often. Only wish all...More

Service was rushed and availability of the full product line was limited. I tried the camo cream and was not overly impressed. The camo cream is simply a twist pn Neapolitan.

We have visited many times, sometimes including the tour and other times not. Either way, best place for a giant scoop of Blue Bell ice cream!

I am a blue bell fanatic. I just had to go see it. I loved their country store and the ice cream parlor! I would recommend going to anyone who loves delicious ice cream and nice people!

Blue Bell no longer offers tours of the manufacturing facility, but there is an observation deck where you can watch several different ice creams being packaged. They had a helpful employee there to answer any questions we asked. Of course, we enjoyed ice cream afterward,...More

We've been on the tour before, so this time just went straight to the tasting room. Huge scoops of ice cream for $1. Choose between all the latest flavors. I hope someday that Blue Bell will offer organic options and get away from the corn...More

This has never happened to me so I am not sure. Bluebell is the best ice cream I have ever had....especially their homemade vanilla. The opposite of cheap flavored ice cream. I'm sorry you had a bad experience.
