Celebrate Mardis Gras with Blue Bell’s King Cake Ice Cream

As if the thought of King Cake couldn’t get any better, Blue Bell Ice Cream is kicking off 2019 with a Mardis Gras party snack like no other.

Mardi Gras King Cake Ice Cream will be released to stores this week in the half gallon size. Whether you decide to party really hard and pair king cake with the ice cream is up to you.

For the first time, the flavor will be available in all areas that sell Blue Bell products.

“We have been making Mardi Gras King Cake since 2012, but the flavor has mostly been sold in areas known for the celebration such as Louisiana and Alabama,” Blue Bell spokesperson Carl Breed said. “Last year a grocery store in Louisiana posted about the flavor’s arrival on its Facebook page and we started receiving requests from all over the country.”

The Mardi Gras inspired dessert is made with a cinnamon cake flavored ice cream, pastry pieces and a colorful cream cheese swirl with candy sprinkles.

Blue Bell enthusiasts may remember that Mardi Gras King Cake is a combination of two previous flavors, Mardi Gras and King Cake.

And just like the annual celebration, Mardi Gras King Cake Ice Cream is only available for a limited time. For more information about Blue Bell and for a complete list of flavors now available in stores, visit www.bluebell.com.
