Blue Bell Creamery
People of all ages flock to the old 1860s European settlement (Brenham) to visit this famous little creamery. Founded in the early 1900s, its reputation has grown over the years while its secrets have remained hidden behind the cool dairy walls. Named for the beautiful Texas state flower, the creamery makes some of the best ice creams ever produced. Take the guided tour and you will be able to verify that fact yourself. The gift shop is a fun place to shop, but the best part is the free scoop of your favorite blend. It is the perfect way to top off a day at this classic ice cream landmark.
no email listed on the web site - to contact them you have to write a letter and send via regular mail. I love the ice cream and want to know more about flavors. I want to send comments but not via snail mail...
I took my 2 young children to the Blue Bell Creamery yesterday (4/5/10), arriving at 1:30. There were no parking places in either of the 2 lots, and I had to drive around for 15 minutes waiting for someone to leave. When we got in, we were told the 2:45 tour was the only one available. The gift store was open, but full of people, and there were very long lines waiting to buy ice cream for $1 a scoop. Every few minutes, a group of about 30 would be ushered into the same line to receive their free scoop. (The dedicated tour ice cream shop was closed). The tour itself was fun and informative, but not quite worth the $5 per adult price of admission. I suppose they raised the price to from $3 recently to keep the crowds down. It hasn't worked so far.
Overall, a once in a lifetime experience... not something I need to repeat.
