New Blue Bell flavors to keep you refreshed during this hot summer

SHREVEPORT, La. (Ark-La-Tex Weekend) - One is two all-time summer favorites combined and the other is a chocolate peanut butter lover’s dream.

One of these new flavors promises to be amazing for the summer. Blue Bell is calling it the official ice cream of the summer, Strawberry Lemonade ice cream! Amazing news, it is already available in stores around the area!

“Ice cream is the perfect summer dessert, and we are excited to kick off the season with our new Strawberry Lemonade Ice Cream,” said Sara Schramm, marketing brand manager for Blue Bell. “We wanted this flavor to be light and refreshing, just like drinking a strawberry lemonade. The texture of the lemonade sherbet combines perfectly with the strawberry ice cream. And, for an extra burst of flavor, we added lemon flakes to the sherbet. We know Strawberry Lemonade will be the flavor of the summer.”

Strawberry Lemonade will be available in half-gallon and pint sizes, get it while supplies last.

Also new in stores is Chocolate Peanut Butter Overload. It is described as a smooth Milk Chocolate Ice Cream loaded with chocolate-coated peanut butter cups and peanut butter cookie dough pieces.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Overload is sold in half-gallon and pint sizes as well, but only for a limited time.

So if you find yourself in need of some ice cream to cool off and want to try something new, Blue Bell has certainly provided it.
