After four long months, Texas's favorite dessert is back on shelves this week, but where can you buy Blue Bell Ice Cream right now On Monday, Blue Bell began distributing its ice cream again to certain cities in Texas and Alabama. Eventually, the company plans to return to at least 15 of the 23 states it was sold in before the massive recall that it issued in the spring. For now, though, its distribution remains severely limited.
Blue Bell's comeback is currently in phase one of five. As of Monday, it had returned to shelves of grocery stores, including Kroger, in the Brenham, Austin, and Houston areas of Texas, as well as the Birmingham and Montgomery areas of Alabama, near where the ice cream is currently being produced. During future phases, the ice cream will gradually return to stores in other areas of Texas, and parts of Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. No timeline for the subsequent phases has been announced, but Blue Bell will proceed to the next phase \"based on product availability and when it can properly service the customers in an area,\" according to a statement on the company's website.
At this point, it's hard to believe that Blue Bell almost went out of business just a matter of months ago. The ice cream is back and making customers in Texas and Alabama very happy. In Texas, though, there's a hometown advantage. It will be interesting to see how things go as Blue Bell moves on to the next phases in states where it doesn't necessarily have the same brand loyalty.
After a four-month absence from store shelves over a listeria outbreak, Blue Bell ice cream's reintroduction to the retail market is going well enough that the company is offering shipping to private homes anywhere in the United States.
