Blue Bell Mardi Gras Ice Cream Review

The Blue Bell Mardi Gras King Cake ice cream flavor is meant to bring you the taste experience of king cake and ice cream in the same bowl. To accomplish that, this Blue Bell flavor contains cinnamon ice cream with cake-like pastry pieces, a bright green cream cheese swirl, and festively purple candy sprinkles.

It’s definitely a colorful work of art in a bowl!

Blue Bell Mardi Gras ice cream has a lot going on, but our Food Rankers panel agrees that it doesn’t taste much like traditional king cake. We do get notes of cinnamon, cream cheese frosting, and sprinkles. The occasional pastry piece does provide a little cake flavor and texture, yet the flavor is predominantly a mixture of cinnamon and cream cheese. One reviewer hit the nail on the head when they described it as “much more like cinnamon roll ice cream than king cake ice cream”.

That being said, this remains a popular seasonal flavor because it’s sweet, colorful, and delicious. It might not taste like king cake to us, but it definitely gives off fun Mardi Gras celebration vibes with its bright colors and sprinkles.

Many of us look forward to celebrating with Blue Bell Mardi Gras ice cream every year, even though the flavor isn’t quite like king cake.

  1. My Husband and I love the Mardi Gras ice cream but we’re extremely disappointed that for some reason the company has started selling it in certain spots. Unfortunately it’s not sold anywhere around us that we can find. While we love Blue Bell ice cream the disappointment is almost enough for me to find a different brand.
