The Great Divide will be the fourth and final Blue Bell Ice Cream flavor returning to shelves in parts of Texas next week.
The half Homemade Vanilla, half Dutch Chocolate combo joins three other flavors that will be available for purchase – Cookies ‘n Cream, Homemade Vanilla and Dutch Chocolate.
Blue Bell will return to stores in Houston and Austin on Monday. North Texas is included in Phase Two of the roll out at an unspecified date.
The iconic creamery has announced one flavor per day this week that will be available in stores via its Instagram account. It said more flavors would eventually be released, but didn’t give a timeline.
Company products were linked to 10 listeria illnesses in four states, including three deaths in Kansas, before a recall April 20.
Listeria is a bacteria that can cause serious illness, especially in older adults, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.
There’s still no set date for when production could resume at the company’s two plants in Oklahoma and Texas.
