Blue Bell ice cream has been back for about a year now. And yes, their containers are still a full half gallon. Used to be, 64 ounces was the standard size for ice cream. But then, “package shrinking” became a way of life in the food industry. Ice cream containers were first shrunk to 56, then to just 48 ounces! Blue Bell has bucked this trend, continuing to offer their ice cream in standard 1/2 gallon containers.
This ice cream is delicious, by the way! Special flavors rotate monthly. Several flavors are available year round. I’m still waiting for my personal favorite Moo-Llenium Crunch to return, but I’m sure it will be here soon.
The regular price for Blue Bell is $7.39 per half gallon. This week, Walgreens has it on sale for $4.99! Just in time for summer get-togethers! If you love Blue Bell ice cream, now is the time to stock up. If you’ve never tried it before, here’s your chance. But I’m warning you, it’s VERY addictive!
