Groom’s Cake Ice Cream! Groom’s Cake is chocolate ice cream with chocolate cake pieces, chocolate coated strawberry hearts, swirled with strawberry sauce and chocolate icing. Most of the groom’s cakes I’ve seen at weddings are some combination of chocolate with strawberry, so the name fits the flavors here.
Blue Bell Ice Cream has been a staple of my diet since I was allowed to eat ice cream. It breaks my heart that there are people out there who can’t get Blue Bell in their local grocery store. Blue Bell is only sold in 17 states, with their headquarters in Brenham, Texas near Houston. You can visit the creamery, take a tour of the facilities and get a scoop of ice cream at the end! The tour is only $3 for adults and $2 for kids. Not a bad deal.
I highly recommend visiting Blue Bell if you find yourself in Houston this summer.
Ok, back to the new ice cream flavor. Whenever I pass through the frozen food aisle I check the freezer for new flavors of Blue Bell. There are times when I am excited about the new flavors and other times when I ask “Who decided that this was a good idea?” I don’t always buy the new flavors that are offered. Sometimes I just find it too hard to spend $5.99 on a half gallon of ice cream that I’m not sure I’ll like. But this new flavor intrigued me. I am not the biggest fan of chocolate ice cream in general. I’d rather have vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips or chocolate fudge than just plain chocolate.
I like this ice cream. The cake pieces are yummy, the strawberry is not overwhelming and adds a different type of sweet than the chocolate flavors, so it works. Look for this new creation from the “little creamery” in Brenham at your local grocery store and try it. You know you want to…
