We moved to Texas in 1980 when I was 13 years old. One good thing that came out of this move was our discovery of Blue Bell ice cream. It was something we heard about and tried and as they say..."Blue bell..the best ice cream in the country!" and it is! I craved strawberries and cream ice cream when I was pregnant with Jacob. I always figured it gave him his red hair...ha! I ate it with Elijah too!
When Blue Bell is on sale I always call my dad to let him know. Today I saw Blackberry cobbler blue bell ice cream and bought it. I just ate me a small bowl and OH was it ever good.
Elijah has become a lover of ice cream too! He is currently into Neapolitan ice cream. He likes to put gummy bears in iwth his ice cream! A cherry on top doesn't hurt either!
Now that I am back on my weight watchers I'll have to watch the amount of ice cream I eat. I'll have to measure it and savor every bite. Blue Bell is worth it though!
