Being a northerner, I would be all for that menu if it included Dunkin Donuts in lieu of Krispy Kreme. Smiley

Thanks for defining the acronym. I have a few airport designations memorized but I'm better with the Amtrak NE Corridor stations. Smiley

Will they have the gallon container at the Walgreens? Most here have pints. Wonder if they could place a one time order with their distruboter.

1/2 Gallon


Though I will say this. Last time at that particular Walgreens I had to get pints of HV and 1/2 gals of other things. But that's when the manager told me to call a few days in advance and he'd hold a 1/2 gal of BBHV for me. Smiley



But BB has full 1/2 gals--not like these teeny Breyer's containers.

We stopped buying Blue Bell and went back to Breyers Vanilla. Just not digging the HFCS that Blue Bell insists on.

Will probably go back to making ice cream with organic non RBgH cream/milk.

Smiley Yeah, I'm one of those parents these days

YKW -- TOTALLY get where you are coming from.

For our family, this will likely be a once-a-year treat for this getaway . . . otherwise I'd be making from scratch and all organic ingredients.

It'd be nice to be able to bring home 1 tub for special event months from now . . . and I do hope to bring extra back if I can for private sharing. (LTFA and we do have non-FA, no-cares-about-what-goes-in friends here who would love me forever for this treat . . . .)

There does come a time when a mommy realizes that a Suburban does have a bursting-at-seams point. Smiley

That's right. If it were a frequent thing, that'd be one thing. But it's a rarity. A treat. Smiley

For anyone who is curious, I've found that I can make it 2 hours just fine with BB in a cooler filled with regular ice. A cooler that's stuffed to the gills.

For anything longer (and by that even 2:15), I've needed dry ice. Dry ice is preferable even for the 2 hours, but I can manage w/o it. Anything more--dry ice.

Need grocery store known sources for Blue Bell, original Homemade Vanilla, 1-gal in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area.

PM if you'd rather not post.

Would be nice to not have to drive all over hell's-half-acre to find for treat.

THANK YOU!


We were in Myrtle Beach, SC this summer, and found the large (?gallon) size Blue Bell ice cream at a Bi-Lo store at 38 Ave N and Hwy 17 Bypass. Smiley

As Canadians, we would never have known about this ice cream if not for reading about it here on this board. It is better than our Chapmans Smiley

I'm not sure how far this is for you, but maybe there is a Bi-Lo in North Carolina?

Oh my.

I know that exact Bi-Lo intimately. Smiley Smiley Smiley
(there USED to be an AFBase in Myrtle Beach)

SO happy that this could be of use to visiting Canadians!

I cannot recall if Bi-Lo is in NC. Would have to Google.

Maybe a whole bunch of us need to petition Blue Bell to get their product into Virginia.

You never know what you might get, just for asking! Smiley

First of all, know that I call every few months and request this. My advocacy efforts are not totally in vain; they say they have a rough timeline for this--but when I call I get "two years." Every time.

Smiley

Cheese--it's a comfort zone thing. The Homemade Vanilla is made round the clock 24/7. And we are comfortable with their cleaning practics. It's pretty pn/tn free, though, though it's a comfort level thing (we've eaten it for years and never had a problem).

If you have found it at a different location in NC than we have, please let me know.

We are driving to Duke Tuesday and will definitely be heading (out of our way) through Greensboro on the way back to pick some up.
