AUSTIN (KXAN) — Those who want to savor the flavor of Christmas have another option in stores, even before Halloween has passed.
Blue Bell Ice Cream is releasing yet another holiday flavor Monday, after bringing two peppermint-packed ones back last week. The company says its Christmas Cookies flavor is one of the most-requested, and it has increased production to hopefully meet demand.
The ice cream combines chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and sugar cookies in a sugar cookie ice cream, with red sprinkles and green icing swirled in it.
The Christmas Cookies flavor is available for a limited time.
Around the holidays, a number of other ice cream companies release seasonally-inspired flavors. Last year, H-E-B had a “Winter Wonderland” flavor. Other brands release their own version of peppermint.
