Louisiana's history and unique, great-tasting cuisine are the inspiration for the newest flavor from Blue Bell, Creole Cream Cheese Ice Cream.
Creole Cream Cheese Ice Cream is a smooth, sweet cream cheese ice cream. A Louisiana tradition, simple and delicious.
The traditional creole cream cheese was once widely available throughout Louisiana. Today, the original treat and the ice cream version are harder to find, but the craving is still there.
"We have had many requests here locally for a creole cream cheese flavor," said Jonathan Solvason, Blue Bell sales manager in New Orleans. "We worked with our research and development team in Brenham (Texas) to create an ice cream that has the authentic taste of creole cream cheese. Our Creole Cream Cheese Ice Cream is fantastic. It goes well with fruit or eaten straight out of the carton."
Creole Cream Cheese Ice Cream is now available in stores, but only in Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf Coast region. "Blue Bell does make several flavors that are only available in specific areas," Solvason added. "Creole cream cheese is truly unique to Louisiana and we're excited to offer it as an ice cream flavor. But you never know, sometimes word spreads and a flavor can become available company-wide. Maybe we can introduce the rest of the country to this Louisiana tradition."
