It's not hot. If it was I wouldn't be eating it. Plus even if it was it's in ice cream so your butt doesn't melt the toilet seat. That's genius.

Tom Thumb used to have one in their house brand, Select whatever, that was creamy coconut ice cream with pineapple chunks, and it was the best I've ever had.

They don't carry it anymore around here.

Hey, I get it.

Its like those folk that befriend criminals, write them, marry them, put money in their accounts. Doesn’t matter if the criminal killed a wife or kid as long as it wasn’t “my” wife or kid.

Used to mean something to be a Texan product. Once they knew the product was bad and fed it to the public, they went the way of most other Texas sellouts.

I have no idea. It's good is all I know. If it's good I eat it. I don't have loyalty to any one brand. If I ain't sponsored by them I eat anything.

Unless blue bell copies that brand and makes ice cream just like it that little blue bunny can kick rocks.

I'd try Wal-Mart first. They've gotta have it there. They also have pistachio. I haven't tried it yet but I'm thinkin about it. I like pistachios so I can't seem to think I'd hate it.

There's not a shortage of it yet. That's why I wanted people to know about it before I gain 300 pounds trying to eat all of it.

I kinda thought the same thing. People take their ice cream pretty serious.

You may like it. It's sure good stuff I thought. But I'm a mango flavored kinda guy.

Ok. You got me I'm trying to get y'all to eat something totally gross. Don't try it. I don't care.

Y'all would argue with a **** fence post. Gets old. You worry about whether or not a generic brand. None of y'all bitchin better have watched the super bowl and supported people that disrespect our country by taking a knee if you're that reluctant to try a dessert. Ice cream is ice cream.

I am a Red Blooded Republican !
We all know red and blue has been known to sweep things under the rug.
I try not to get politics involved in my ice cream. It’s supposed to be enjoyed.
I am a Texan too !
Therefore I know what is good and International Grocers Assn. isn’t even a U.S. company even though based in Illinois. So No !
I don’t support international business.

Blue Bell is good, but regularly loses blind taste tests to other ice creams. It's got this weird cult following in Texas, though. It's a lot like whataburger. It's good, but I don't understand the blind devotion and insistence that it's better than all other burgers, ever.

I think so. My mom is actually who got it and I think she shops there mostly. I went over to her house Saturday night for supper and she brought that out. I was like uhh no thanks. She scooped some in a bowl and I took a bite and was like "Ok load that bowl up with that."

She likes the Pistachio better. I didn't try it yet.
