2015 was a hard year. Especially April through August, that's when Blue Bell was hit with a listeria outbreak and halted all production. I searched the black market for just one spoonful of Natural Vanilla Bean or a spot of Mint Chocolate Chip but came up empty-handed.

Thankfully the last three and a half years have been happier days. But there have been a handful of frozen treats missing from the dessert aisle shelves, including the Ice Cream Sandwich. On Monday the Creamery announced via an Instagram post that the summer staple is back in stores.

If that wasn't enough it was announced this morning that the Banana Pop is again available wherever you buy Blue Bell.

So whether or not you have a trip planned this summer, you can at least travel back to your childhood with a dessert in hand, floating down the river.
