Today marks an important day for Blue Bell Ice Cream as the company has announced that it has gone into phase two of its plans to expand the availability of its ice cream products, following the listeria problem that forced the company to shut down production plants for some time.
It seems the Texas ice cream company is making a good turnaround in time for the upcoming holiday season. In fact, Blue Bell ice cream products are not just available in more cities now. It’s also available for delivery.
For phase two of Blue Bell’s return to the market, the company is proud to announce that its ice cream trucks has made product deliveries to various stores located in Dallas, Fort Worth and Waco in Texas as well as in Tulsa and Oklahoma City in Oklahoma. Moreover, Blue Bell says ice cream deliveries were also made in stores located in surrounding areas.
Blue Bell Vice President of Sales and Marketing Ricky Dickson explains that the company has been working on building up inventory for the past several weeks in preparation for phase two. He also wants to assure everyone that Blue Bell is working as fast as it can to get their ice cream back into the stores and shall be doing refills on store shelves as needed.
Meanwhile, since Blue Bell Ice Cream is yet to be available throughout the country, the company says it can now ship anywhere in the USA for a price of $129, which gets you four half gallons of ice cream. All ice cream orders are actually shipped via UPS for next day delivery. Blue Bell says the company is set up to ship on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
As for flavors, Blue Bell says there are currently five available in the stores and for shipping. These are Buttered Pecan, Cookies n’ Cream, Dutch Chocolate, Homemade Vanilla and The Great Divide. At the same time, Blue Bell’s 12-pak Homemade Vanilla Cups and 12-pak Homemade Vanilla and Dutch Chocolate Cups are also now available in stores.
