    Blue Bell Announces Next Flavor to Hit Stores
    Amanda Martin

    Texans will soon have another Blue Bell ice cream flavor to choose from in the stores.

    The Brenham-based creamery announced via Instagram on Monday that Pistachio Almond will be the next flavor to return to store freezers.

    The latest flavor is a pistachio ice cream with pieces of chopped, roasted almonds.

    It's expected to be back in stores this week.

    This is the fifth flavor released since Blue Bell made its comeback.

    Blue Bell recalled all of its ice cream products and halted production of their entire line earlier this summer after listeria contamination.

    After months of cleaning and testing, Blue Bell began to return their ice cream to grocery store freezers in 15 states through a five-phase distribution plan.
