Governor Greg Abbott today welcomed the return of Blue Bell ice cream at the Texas Capitol. Today is the first day Blue Bell ice cream is available in select markets, including Austin.
“Texans can rejoice today as Blue Bell ice cream makes its long-awaited comeback in freezer aisles across the state,” said Governor Abbott. “Generations of families have enjoyed Blue Bell as a traditional Texas treat, and their production facilities have played an integral economic role in local communities across the Lone Star State. On behalf of all Texans, I want to welcome Blue Bell back and wish them luck as they continue to ramp up production.”
