Blue Bell introduces new Holiday Favorite, Peppermint Bark Ice Cream

Blue Bell introduces new Holiday Favorite, Peppermint Bark Ice CreamWith the holiday season upon us Blue Bell Ice Cream is introducing a new flavor that is inspired by a popular Christmastime treat, peppermint bark. Peppermint Bark Ice Cream is a smooth mint ice cream loaded with luscious dark chocolate chunks and tasty white chocolate chunks containing crushed peppermint candies.

“Our new ice cream flavor was created to taste just like the peppermint bark many of us enjoy making and eating during the holiday season,” said Brenda Valera, director of research and development for Blue Bell. “Traditional peppermint bark is very simple to make and consists of a dark chocolate bottom, a layer of white chocolate and a topping of crushed peppermint candies. Those are all of the same ingredients you will find in our Peppermint Bark Ice Cream.”

Peppermint Bark is a new addition to the popular Holiday Favorites line Blue Bell introduced in 2011. The line also includes Christmas Cookies Ice Cream, Fudge Divinity Ice Cream, Peppermint Ice Cream and Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Ice Cream.

Christmas Cookies is a combination of your favorite holiday cookies – chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and sugar – in a tasty sugar cookie ice cream with red candy cane-shaped sprinkles and a green icing swirl throughout.

Fudge Divinity, introduced last year, is a rich marshmallow ice cream mixed with crunchy chopped pecans and a swirl of milk chocolate sauce.

Peppermint, a long-time favorite ice cream flavor during the holiday season, is a cool, refreshing peppermint ice cream sprinkled with peppermint candy pieces.

Spiced Pumpkin Pecan is a delightful spiced pumpkin ice cream combined with tasty sugar-coated pecans and a rich cinnamon-honey-praline sauce.

Look for Peppermint Bark Ice Cream along with the four returning Holiday Favorites each neatly packaged in a half gallon container, adorned with a red ribbon and bow, in your grocer’s freezer section. Blue Bell Holiday Favorites are only available for a limited time.
