Beginning August 1, Blue Bell Ice Cream fans will once again have the chance to bring back a favorite flavor from the past in the online Crankin’ Back the Clock Flavor Contest.
There are 16 tempting flavors to choose from and the list includes Carrot Cake, French Vanilla Cappuccino, Fruit Special and Pineapple Upside Down Cake. The remaining flavors will be revealed at www.bluebell.com on August 1.
Blue Bell introduced its Crankin’ Back the Clock Flavor Contest in 2012 and Caramel Turtle Cheesecake Ice Cream was overwhelmingly chosen as the winner. The flavor was reintroduced in 2013. White Chocolate Almond placed second, followed by Nutty Chocolate.
“Everyone has a favorite he or she would like Blue Bell to make again, so you can imagine just how difficult it is to choose only 16 flavors,” said Carl Breed, director of marketing for Blue Bell. “I think everyone will be pleased with the selection. The contest was a success in 2012, and we’re excited to find out which ice cream our fans choose this time.”
To vote you must be a member of the Blue Bell Country Club. If you are not a member, you may register at www.bluebell.com. Participants are allowed one vote per day, per registered e-mail address starting on Aug. 1, and then on Aug. 8, the four flavors receiving the least number of votes will be removed. A week later, four more flavors will be eliminated. From Aug. 22-31, voters will choose between the final four flavors, those that have so far received the most votes.
Voting ends Aug. 31. The winning flavor will be announced in an e-mail to all Country Club members later this year and introduced in a half gallon carton in 2015.
