  • Iconic creamery that can't be missed! Pay attention to the hours and what is open on weekends (no museum or observation deck). The creamery closed at 4pm the Saturday we visited. We got there at 3 and had enough time to have ice cream and see the shop. Plenty of seating even though it was very busy. You get your ice cream first and then line up to pay. Credit cards are accepted. It's only $1 for a BIG scoop! They had two flavors that are currently not available in the store, Happy Tracks, and Salted Caramel. The country store was smaller than I expected and is just at one end of the creamery. They have Blue Bell branded merchandise and other things as well. I bought a great ice cream scoop. The creamery is upstairs but there is an elevator straight ahead when you go in the doors.
  • Perfect place to come with the kids, there is a small museum about the creamery and how they make ice cream (no fee), and there is an observation deck in the second floor, with windows so you can see the ice cream machines and the packing machines, also the people working there, very interesting! (No fee!) also there is a small store for souvenirs and you can buy ice cream ($1 each) with lot of flavors they don’t offer at the supermarket. Would be a nice place to come for a field trip or any day to get out to the country. It’s open mon-Friday only. Masks required to enter.
  • This place is beautiful! The museum and observation deck were closed because we visited on Saturday, but we still had plenty to enjoy. There was a small but cute baseball museum downstairs and beautiful spacious ice cream parlor and gift shop upstairs. Generous scoops for $1. Highly recommend!
  • We had an awesome experience. They allow you to watch the factory floor from an observation deck up high (behind windows)…which is super cool. They were packaging all sizes of ice cream from the single serve to the giant ones they must sell to ice cream parlors. The gift shop is great as well. They have typical Blue Bell merchandise like t-shirts & mugs and they have a few extra cute things like baby toys & ball caps. The $1 scoops of ice cream are plenty big and they offer a lot of flavors at any given time. We tried Mocha Almond Fudge, Moo-llennium Crunch, Cookies n Cream, Peachy Peach, and Blackberry Cobbler. So good! It’s a great place to take the kids. They even give out little paper blue bell hats. We would highly recommend this place!
  • What a wonderful day trip. It was full of information and nostalgia. And at the end you get a huge scoop of ice cream for a buck. Being Texas born and breed, Blue Bell is a treasure and we loved getting to share it with our son.
