Blue Bell releases new 'ice cream cone' flavor

BRENHAM, Texas (KTRK) -- Cone or a bowl?

Now, you don't have to choose!

Blue Bell just released its newest flavor that will let folks enjoy ice cream cones straight from the carton.

Meet "Ice Cream Cone" - it's vanilla ice cream loaded with dark chocolate-coated cone pieces and chopped roasted peanuts, all surrounded by a rich chocolate sundae sauce swirl.

"We may have solved one of the biggest dilemmas for ice cream fans, cone versus bowl," said Ricky Dickson, Blue Bell president. "Ice Cream Cone is a great combination of everything you would expect, vanilla ice cream, chocolate and cone pieces. And a cone always needs a topping, so we added in the chopped roasted peanuts. Ice Cream Cone is about as close to perfection as you can get."

If you can't wait to try Ice Cream Cone, it will be available for a limited time in the half gallon and pint sizes.

"This is our first brand new flavor of the year, and you can expect a few more in the coming months," Dickson said.
