Blue Bell Ice Cream Brenham, Texas

July 19th, 2013 by Susan Lopez

Blue Bell Ice Cream Brenham, Texas opened its doors in 1907.  Blue Bell Ice Cream was first delivered by horse and wagon. People use to make their own homemade ice cream at home, so Blue Bell had to really make their ice cream special.  When you take the tour you will see a company that is very well run.  Blue Bell uses the area dairy farms for the great ingredients that go into the ice cream.
The Blue Bell Creameries’ top seller is homemade vanilla!  They have so many flavors and rotate them with the seasons. It just keeps you guessing which ones will be on the store shelves, when you go into buy your ice cream.  Homemade vanilla goes on anything from pie to cakes and can be topped with your favorite toppings.  Our Brenham House guests enjoyed these brownie sundaes with Homemade Vanilla Blue Bell Ice Cream.
