  • What a great place to learn where our ice cream comes from. And it does not get any fresher than right from the dairy itself. Taking the tour is great but it is also great just stop in for $1 ice...

  • 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.
