  • Although they are not doing tours, it is worth a stop in Brenham for a scoop of Blue Bell Ice Cream. The ice cream is inexpensive and yummy. There is also a cute store with lots of fun Blue Bell items...  more »
  • We truly enjoyed our stop at the creamery. Lots of great things in the shop and make sure you stop just to enjoy the ice cream! Nothing like the ice cream straight from the maker.  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.
