Our favorite thing here in Texas when it comes to passing seasons, Blue Bell Ice Cream. We love when we get the news that a new flavor is coming out, or an old friend is returning.

Grab your big bowls, Blue Bell is kicking off 2019 with Mardi Gras King Cake Ice Cream! The flavor will be released to stores this week in the half gallon size. To sweeten the occasion, for the first time, the flavor is available in all areas that sell Blue Bell products.

“We have been making Mardi Gras King Cake since 2012, but the flavor has mostly been sold in areas known for the celebration such as Louisiana and Alabama,” said Carl Breed, corporate sales manager for Blue Bell. “Last year a grocery store in Louisiana posted about the flavor’s arrival on its Facebook page and we started receiving requests from all over the country. After that, we decided to share this festive flavor with everyone in our distribution area.”

The Mardi Gras inspired dessert is made with a cinnamon cake flavored ice cream, tasty pastry pieces and a colorful cream cheese swirl with festive candy sprinkles. Get it while you can, Mardi Gras King Cake Ice Cream is only available for a limited time.
