HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Blue Bell Creameries has launched a new flavor in hopes that you will be dancing to your nearest store to buy some pints and half -gallons. The Cookie Two Step, which will be available in stores on July 15, contains vanilla ice cream with brown sugar, chunks of chocolate crème-filled cookies and chocolate chip cookie dough pieces.
The Texas-based creamery announced the pending flavor in advance on Facebook on Thursday with a hint that the flavor would "have your taste buds two-steppin.'" To give Blue Bell Ice Cream lovers a hint as to what the new flavor could be, the post simply stated that it would be a combination of two of the creamery's best-selling flavors.
“What better way to celebrate National Ice Cream Month than with the release of a brand new ice cream flavor,” said Ricky Dickson, vice president of sales and marketing for Blue Bell Creameries in a statement on the company's website. “Cookie Two Step combines ingredients from two of our top-selling flavors, making it a perfect combination that you have to try.”
