    A Southern Nightmare?

    Blue Bell Ice Cream recalling product AGAIN!

    https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Bl...562643431.html

    One wonders what is happening with this company. Fortunately, we have pretty much switched to HEB ice cream products. Unfortunately, we are getting to the point where it isn't good for us to eat it. NO ICE CREAM??? The ultimate Halloween horror!

    Looks like only the Butter Crunch flavor. I do not like that flavor.
    I remember the big recall a few years back. Horrible.
    Wife and i were driving down to Galveston on 45 when one of the first Blue Bell delivery trucks started running again
    Cars were honking. flashing lights and giving thumbs up to the driver.
    We love our Blue Bell here in Texas.
    Only thing i like better is an ice cold Shiner Bock.

    Blue Bell "homemade vanilla" is the best tasting, store bought ice cream ever. Long live BB. Is life without ice cream really worth living? A big scoop of vanilla BB atop a warm bowl of home made peach cobbler is the bomb.

    Now, if they'd just make Blue Bell in Shiner Bock flavor.

    Hate to say it, but frozen custard wins for me. Have a place in Raleigh we stop at every chance we have. I know it's Yankee food - sue me.

    Blue Bell is one of the few brands that carry my favorite flavor, black walnut. The problem is that it is hard to find a store that carries it.

    How about the video on the page. A girl is punished for warning other students that there is a rapist, but the rapist has been raping girls for years, and the school refuses to deal with the rapist. Charge the administration for aiding and abetting a rapist.

    My all time favorite ice cream is Turkish Coffee, made by McConnell's Ice Cream in Santa Barbara. They use all natural ingredients and real chips of coffee in it. Incredible stuff!

    If you think Blue Bell is the greatest, you haven't tried bluebunny brand turtle sundae ice cream bars. There was only ever one place I could find them, and that was at a gas station convenience store where we stopped for gas on our way to visit my son. Good thing, too, because I could have eaten myself to obesity on those things! That was nigh on to 20 years ago.

    You don't have to find a store for me because we only eat homemade ice cream anymore, and the ingredients in those turtle bars make me shudder when I read them!

    I had Turkish coffee once in Turkey. Had a quarter inch of sludge at the bottom of the cup and I felt like my heart was going to jump out of my chest. Does the ice cream do that?

    I don't like Ben and Jerry's politics, but their flavor "Cinnamon Buns" is the crack of ice cream. I'd eat it until I OD'ed. And I don't even like real cinnamon buns. It is hard to find lately, though.

    We have our own small home ice cream maker. That's the best, though.
