BRENHAM, TX — Blue Bell is taking a new spin on an old school flavor.

Cookies 'n Cream Cone is a twist on the original Cookie Cone flavor.

According to Blue Bell, the new flavor features a "creamy vanilla ice cream combined with chocolate crème filled cookie crumbles, chocolate cone pieces coated in dark chocolate and a chocolate fudge sauce."

“Some of you will remember our Cookie Cone, which inspired this flavor,” said Joe Robertson, executive director of advertising & marketing for Blue Bell. “Imagine our Cookies ’n Cream Ice Cream, then add in cone pieces and a fudgy swirl. It’s an ice cream with all of the delicious ingredients of a Cookie Cone. It’s your favorite cone, but in a carton.”

The new flavor is now available in half gallon and pint sizes, however it will only be around for a limited time.

The Cookie Cone flavor was introduced in 1997 and mostly sold in school cafeterias. Blue Bell says it has not been available since 2015.

“We have heard from many of our fans on social media that the Cookie Cone was a popular lunchtime treat in school,” Robertson added. “Cookies ’n Cream Cone is a new twist on an old favorite that we know Cookie Cone fans will enjoy!”

Blue Bell also announced it is bringing back Cotton Candy and Orange Swirl for a limited time. The flavors are only available in pint sizes.
