Last week, Blue Bell Creameries announced the debut of a new flavor, Cookies ‘n Cream Cone, inspired by an old favorite, Cookie Cone. The sweet treat hit stores Thursday and is available in half gallon and pint sizes for a limited time.
Blue Bell says the flavor is a creamy vanilla ice cream combined with chocolate crème filled cookie crumbles, chocolate cone pieces coated in dark chocolate and a chocolate fudge sauce.
From Blue Bell’s press release: “Some of you will remember our Cookie Cone, which inspired this flavor,” said Joe Robertson, executive director of advertising & marketing for Blue Bell. “Imagine our Cookies ’n Cream Ice Cream, then add in cone pieces and a fudgy swirl. It’s an ice cream with all of the delicious ingredients of a Cookie Cone. It’s your favorite cone, but in a carton.”
Blue Bell introduced the Cookie Cone in 1997, and it was mostly sold in school cafeterias. The product has not been available since 2015. “We have heard from many of our fans on social media that the Cookie Cone was a popular lunchtime treat in school,” Robertson added. “Cookies ’n Cream Cone is a new twist on an old favorite that we know Cookie Cone fans will enjoy!”
Also, two pint-sized flavors are back for a limited time, Cotton Candy and Orange Swirl. Cotton Candy is a delicious cotton candy flavored ice cream in shades of pink and blue. Orange Swirl is a refreshing swirl of orange sherbet and vanilla ice cream.
