Destination: Blue Bell Creamery
As summer comes to an end, you might think you've had just about every type of ice cream available. Think again. Put down the overhyped, $10 gelato, get on the phone and get ahold of some Blue Bell Ice Cream.
On our recent foray into TX, we stopped and asked what the best ice cream around was. The only answer we got was a resounding "Blue Bell." If you find yourself in Houston, take Highway 290 West for about 70 miles, pass the old drive-in theatre, take a right, and park it in the lot at the Blue Bell Creamery. Yes, these are actually the most exact directions available. The company runs tours every day, and is closed on weekends.
Only available in select southern U.S. locales, Blue Bell is ice cream made with cream, sugar, and whatever the freshest ingredients available are. Flavors rotate as fruits come into season; we had the Peaches and Cream, and it was amazing. If they don't sell pints made that day, employees charmingly take 'em home to eat. We have promised ourselves we'll never be caught dead with a pint of ho-hum Breyers again.
