If you are passing thru Brenham and need an ice cream fix....THIS IS IT! All for one dollar per scoop! They give wonderful tours that are quite educational and it includes free ice cream at the end. Heck of a deal!

Stopped by on our way to Washington on the Brazos. They are not doing tours anymore but have an informative museum to look through, Be sure to stop by the ice cream parlor for a generous scoop for just a dollar!

Even though the tours have stopped, it's still worth a trip. There are tons of photo opportunities in front of the creamery and inside the ice cream parlor. The gift shop is amazing! The ice cream parlor is clean, the staff is friendly, and the...More

I went before the listeria breakout. They are no longer offering tours of this facility, I suppose to the publicity caused by the listeria contamination. A real shame as I really enjoyed it and looked forward to going again. Hopefully it will open up for...More

The best way to find out is to ask Blue Bell.
Have they started the tours again? It still says no tours on their website. Wondering if it is worth the stop without a tour.

Why does the ice cream turn to a slimmy yuk after you open the container? This never happened before ! It's like the really cheap ice cream !! Why !!

This has never happened to me so I am not sure. Bluebell is the best ice cream I have ever had....especially their homemade vanilla. The opposite of cheap flavored ice cream. I'm sorry you had a bad experience.
