According to the Houston Chronicle, the specialty ice cream is available in the Houston area, but only in certain cities.
“Our Mardi Gras King Cake flavor is a market specific flavor available in select markets and areas,” Blue Bell’s Jenny Van Dorf said in an interview with the Chronicle. “We are not distributing the flavor on a wide scale in the Houston area.”
Blue Bell’s distribution centers in Alvin and Beaumont are selling the ice cream in surrounding communities, including Galveston, Clear Lake, Webster, La Marque, Texas City, Pearland, Friendswood, Beaumont and Alvin.
The King Cake ice cream is being sold in pints and half-gallons, so grab a bit while you can and freeze it for Fat Tuesday. Or just eat the whole container, we won’t judge you.
