It's wedding season! Spring and summer are busy every year with beautiful, sunny outdoor weddings, and Blue Bell is here to help celebrate wedding-inspired flavors.
Popsugar reports that Blue Bell is releasing two wedding flavors for a limited time.
The bride flavor, called Bride's Cake, features almond ice cream with white cake pieces and an amaretto cream cheese icing swirl, and its called blue bell wedding cake ice cream. This flavor is said to be inspired by popular wedding cake flavors, and I have to agree that it's pretty fancy. That amaretto cream cheese swirl is enough to make me want to go and buy it. The other flavor is called the Blue Bell Bride Cake, and apparently the groom is the one who gets all the chocolate (not fair!).
This ice cream is chocolate flavored with chocolate cake pieces and chocolate-covered strawberry hearts. It's got swirls of strawberry sauce and chocolate icing, which would perfectly complement the bride's flavor. This Groom's Cake flavor is actually a Blue Bell throwback, and I'm glad to see it return. “We introduced Groom’s Cake in 2009,” said Jenny Van Dorf, Blue Bell public relations manager, in a press release.
“The idea came from an actual groom’s cake one of our employees tasted at a family wedding. We are excited to bring Groom’s Cake Ice Cream back to our line up and pair it with our new Bride’s Cake Ice Cream. Quite the match, I would say!” I would say so, too! Van Dorf says she's heard fans say they use Blue Bell bride ice cream in place of actual wedding cake. I guess that means this way, they can have both bases covered.
These flavors are the perfect treat for a warm, sunny summer wedding. I hadn't ever heard of a groom's cake before, but it's apparently a tradition in the south, in which the groom gets a cake right next to that of the bride. This tradition needs to spread throughout the rest of the country, because what's better than more cake? Remember, these ice cream flavors are only available for a limited time, so don't miss out!
