Another deficient answer from this person who does not live here, and has not lived here for years. Why do you bother posting comment that you can have no possible answer to the subject. So, we can all know that you can look up Blue Bell on the web? ooooh, wow, he is so smart.

The answer is that Blue Bell introduced their ice creams to the Front Range, in March 2011, with a big promotion, coupons and ads were everywhere. Here is an article about that Introduction:

The taste of Blue Bell is coming to Colorado Springs | blue, bell, soon - Colorado Springs Gazette, CO

I remember all this because I LIVE HERE and got some free ice cream.

My personal opinion is that this ice cream is nothing special in flavor but it has been able to establish a following with a Texas tradition. It still sells their ice cream in half gallon containers vs. the now current smaller sizes.

Yes, I've seen Blue Bell ice cream here.

Sort of off-topic: When I visited Mount Rushmore last summer, I stopped in at an ice cream shop that served Land O Lakes ice cream. I had no idea Land O Lakes even made ice cream. It was excellent.

The poster apologized, acknowledging they were incorrect...yet you have to make a spectacle of the poster and puff your chest in all your almighty knowledge, disappointing!

Yep, from Texas. Blue Bell is what I've grown up with and I prefer it over most ice creams like Ben and Jerrys for example. HEB (not sure if you have these grocery stores or not) carries a really decent ice cream as well called Creamy Creations (I believe). I've never tried the Kroger brand ice cream.

Blue Bell mainly sells half gallons, but they also sell a lot of their flavors in the smaller containers as well.

No HEBs here, only in TX. My family has been in TX for a while and I have always enjoyed Blue Bell ice cream. They have so many delicious flavors. I was happy when they started selling it here last year

I grew up on Blue Bell in Texas, and yes, they sell it here. I buy it at Walmart and Target. Outback Steakhouse also serves Blue Bell exclusively in terms of ice cream in all of their restaurants (just a bit of Blue Bell trivia, lol).

I think Blue Bell's been available by the scoop at the Russell Stover store on Colorado Boulevard for years.

As for whether it's fantastic: Meh. There's only one flavor I find fantastic and that's Tin Roof Sundae...which apparently is only available once every seventh neap tide or something.
