WHEN in south Florida?? Thu, 02/23/06 12:36 PM (permalink)
I am desperate for Blue Bell in the Florida Keys! It's the main thing I miss after moving from Texas. It is at least a 4 hour trip north or west to find a distributor. When can we expect it south of Miami? Thanks!

    ICM ... Welcome to RF.

    My guess is you be well advised to campaign to the manager of whatever the biggest chain in the area is and ask if they'll do a special order.

    Most chains say they will. I don't know if they ever deliver on the promise.

      If your fortunate enough to get Blue Bell products make sure they stock the Key Lime Pie flavor, it's the best IMO!

        and key lime pie usually comes out from the March to April time frame..sometimes year round in certain area(such the florida area i believe..like the Mardi Gras flavor, being available more so year round in the New Orleans area).
        check out the new flavors, Hot Chocolate - Creamy milk chocolate ice cream loaded with miniature marshmallows, dark chocolate shavings and a rich marshmallow sauce swir.
        and
        Chocolate Almond Marshmallow - Dark chocolate ice cream and a smooth, marshmallow sauce swirled together with crisp chocolate coated almond pieces
        also, choc. covered cherries is back out in full swing.

          ICM, I swear I've seen it in some Publix stores here in SW FL. Publix is all over Florids.

            My ex was/is a huge Chocolate Covered Cherry fan! I'll be watching for the Key Lime here. I can't eat but a spoonful of it as my desire for sweets took a permanent vacation but the rest of the family, they'll take care of it.
