  • Excellent tour and great ice cream I live here and was saddened when then they shut down. The flavors are coming back slowly 
  • We made a quick stop after passing by. Unfortunately there are no factory tours but there is a nice visitor center showing the history of Blue Bell. The ice cream parlor offers $1.00 huge scoops of de...  more »
  • The Blue Bell visitor/history center is somewhat interesting; due to previous production problems, there are no creamery tours; we were told that any tours will not start again until 2017 or 2018; you...  more »

  • WHY WOULD ANYONE EAT THIS FILTH? THESE CLOWNS SHOULD BE IN JAIL AND IF IT WAS ANY STATE OTHER THAN TEXAS, THEY WOULD BE. ARE ALL BLUE BELL CUSTOMERS IDIOTS? YES OF COURSE THEY ARE. HOW ELSE CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHY ANYONE WOULD RISK GETTING LISTERIA?
  • A great halfway stop when driving between Houston to Austin, otherwise not worth. The ice cream is delicious and only $1 per scoop! However, they are not currently giving tours and the shop is only open on weekdays.
  • A very kool place to visit. You get $1 ice cream in many flavors and tour of the factory is not to be missed. I have gone here several times and will be going again tomorrow, Dean
  • "THANK YOU BLUE BELL FOR A WONDERFUL ICE CREAM ITS THE ABSOLUTE BEST."
  • How can anyone not love Blue Bell? BB is pretty much everything that is right with Texas and the deliciousness that is made with love. The factory tour is really awesome to do if you are in town and I suggest calling ahead to make sure they are doing tours and also getting there early. Lines to get long and they will have a cut off. If you decide to not do the tour you can go onto the second level and they have an ice cream bar and you can get any ice cream in any combination for $1 per scoop. The grounds outside are very beautiful and offer several photo-op spots so don't forget to bring your camera.
