Blue Bell Ice Cream returns to Denver on Monday
BRENHAM, Texas, March 21, 2017 – Blue Bell Ice Cream will be available in grocery stores in Denver and the surrounding cities beginning March 27. (Cities listed below.)
“We are very excited to be in a position to expand our sales territory,” said Wayne Hugo, vice president of sales and marketing for Blue Bell. “Earlier this month we returned to Arizona and Wilmington, N.C., and now we can’t wait to get our products back to Denver. This year is shaping up to be a great one for our company.”
Blue Bell will reopen its distribution facility located in Centennial. “Our staff will total around 40 employees to service the Denver area,” Hugo said. “It could take up to two weeks to deliver products to every store, so initially, we will bring in additional employees from other states to help with the opening. We want to thank our retailer partners and consumers for their patience and support as we make our return.”
Ice cream fans can purchase Blue Bell at King Soopers and Walmart as well as other local supermarkets. If you cannot find Blue Bell in the ice cream section, be sure to check with the store manager.
The return of Blue Bell will be even sweeter with the re-release of Rocky Mountain Road Ice Cream, which was introduced in 2011 in honor of Colorado and its Rocky Mountain scenery. Rocky Mountain Road is a rich, dark chocolate ice cream combined with dark chocolate-coated peanuts, milk chocolate-coated pecans, white chocolate-coated almonds and roasted walnuts, all surrounded by a flavorful marshmallow sauce swirl.
Also, look for the newest flavor from Blue Bell, Ice Cream Cone – a tasty vanilla ice cream loaded with dark chocolate-coated cone pieces, chopped roasted peanuts, all surrounded by a rich chocolate sauce swirl. This flavor is available in the half gallon and pint sizes, but only for a limited time.
