July is National Ice Cream Month, and Blue Bell has joined in the festivities with the release of a new seasonal flavor. The company describes it as:
“A rich, coconut French ice cream with flakes of coconut, tasty pie crust pieces and a whipped topping swirl loaded with toasted coconut.”
The new coconut cream pie ice cream is now available in both half gallon and pint sizes. We found our pint size at Walmart for around $2.50.
If you like coconut cream pie, you will love this.
Coconut Cream Pie Ice Cream Done Right
The coconut fans in our Food Rankers group were ready to try this the moment it was announced. The rest of us found the description a little too coconut-y for coconut cream pie ice cream, but opinions were unanimous once the Blue Bell was served.
Doesn’t that look delicious?
At first bite, it tastes exactly like its namesake. It is the creamiest ice cream we have experienced in a long time, and it hits all the right notes from the vanilla to the toasted coconut and pie pieces.
The only criticism came from B, our biggest coconut lover, saying that they “wish it had more coconut or coconut flavor”.
Have we mentioned how much it tastes like coconut cream pie? We are so amazed that we must talk about it again. Blue Bell did an excellent job developing this flavor, and it really is the perfect summer treat.
Summary and Rating
- Creamy and delicious
- Pie pieces and toasted coconut provide the right texture
- The flavor complexity is incredible and spot on
- Not as much coconut flavor as the description suggests, though some of us consider this a pro.
Average Rating: 8.5/10 (Excellent)
Everyone is still saying “It really does taste like coconut cream pie! How did they do that?”
The Food Ranker Crew will definitely be buying more Blue Bell Coconut Cream Pie flavor, and we recommend that you try it before it disappears.
