Fans Melt Down After Supply Of Blue Bell’s Christmas Ice Cream Dries Up

The company announced the flavor in a Facebook post, touting the combination of sugar cookie, chocolate chip and snickerdoodle flavors paired with red sprinkles and a green icing swirl

Blue Bell is in hot water again.

The Brenham-based creamery is getting a cold shoulder from fans looking for its newest, Yuletide-themed flavor. After a objectively early launch a week before Halloween, it seems Blue Bell's Christmas Cookies Ice Cream won't be home for the holidays for many rabid fans.

The company announced the flavor in a Facebook post on Oct. 23, touting the combination of sugar cookie, chocolate chip and snickerdoodle flavors paired with red sprinkles and a green icing swirl.

Then,like a flash, the supply dried up. Customers could no longer find it in stores, and while it was originally offered online, the flavor doesn’t seem to be availableanymore.

So, naturally, people had a lot of problems with that and took to the internet for an especially lengthyairing of grievances. While a sprinkling of the 8,000-plus commenterson Facebook and Instagram clamored for revivals of flavors of Christmas past – like Gingerbread House and Hot Chocolate – many of them lamented the scarcity of the Christmas Cookies flavor in grocery aisles nationwide.

Whilethe company was responsivein October shortly after posting on Facebook, there hasn’t been much of a stir since.

This, of course, comes after a multi-stateshutdown of plantsin 2015 after three people in Kansas died and 10 people across four states were hospitalized. Listeria was again found in Blue Bell cookie doughin 2016.
