During the last few days of National Ice Cream Month, Blue Bell has released its newest summer flavor, Key Lime Mango Tart.

The ice cream company says the new flavor is a sweet and tangy key lime ice cream blended with graham cracker crust pieces and a mango sauce swirl.

"We like to think of our new Key Lime Mango Tart as sunshine in a carton," said Joe Robertson, executive director of advertising and marketing for Blue Bell. "You can taste the key lime flavor in the first bite of ice cream, but with a hint of sweetness from the mango sauce. The graham cracker pieces will remind you of eating a Key lime pie."

During the course of National Ice Cream Month, Blue Bell has celebrated by returning three fan favorites, Fudge Bars, Krazy Kookie Dough Ice Cream and Cotton Candy Ice Cream.

"July is always an exciting month for us at Blue Bell because we get to celebrate ice cream," Robertson added. "Each year we release a brand new flavor to recognize National Ice Cream Month, but this year we have also brought back some of our most popular items. It is a win-win for everyone!"

The new flavor will be available in half-gallon and pint sizes for a limited time.
