Blue Bell Creameries Tour

Today we went to visit the Blue Bell Creameries in Brenham, Texas. It was a 3 hour round trip and totally worth it! It was so much fun and so much more than I expected.
The Blue Bell Creamery in Brenham is the original Blue Bell Production Plant.
We went on a tour of the production plant. You're not allowed to take pictures but I snuck this one. We saw them making and packing their Pecan Pralines 'n Cream, Chocolate Ice Cream and Ice Cream Sandwiches. We also learned that they used to use Oreos for their Cookies 'n Cream ice cream but couldn't buy Oreos in bulk so now they make their own cookies that they use in their Cookies 'n Cream. They also take any Ice Cream Sandwich rejects and put them in the Cookies 'n Cream ice cream too. Very interesting!
After the tour, you can sample any and all ice cream and then pick the one you want. We all sampled everything and we all picked the same one!
I do not like ice cream, but let me tell you that Krazy Kookie Dough is one of the best things I've ever tasted! I've never even heard of it before. So delicious! It was everyone's favorite today.
We crossed another item off our Summer Bucket List. This one was my favorite so far this summer. We definitely want to go back!
Being silly waiting for our friends to get to our house to go to Blue Bell

On the way there!

Come back tomorrow for Project Life Tuesday!
