Friday Fun…You Scream, I Scream….


When I was walking through our local grocery store stopped and did a double take! There in the frozen food section were pints of Blue Bell Dr. Pepper Ice cream!

Now if you’re not from Texas, you may not be familiar with Blue Bell Ice Cream or Dr. Pepper but they are very good friends with those of us who grew up here. 


I rarely eat ice cream and don’t drink soft drinks but with the end of the school year here and summer weather already here, I may have to try a Dr. Pepper Float!  

I did some searching and found out what the favorite ice cream flavors are in each state.  (full disclosure…you could view 5 of these lists and they would all be different.) 


Anyway, I chose the list that seemed more reasonable. 


What’s my favorite?  Besides any of the Blue Bell Flavors, I love Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Therapy!

So what’s your favorite flavor of ice cream? If you no longer eat ice cream, what flavor would you eat??

Good morning, Kathy. I do know Blue Bell and I know Dr. Pepper... have not see this particular flavor but will keep my eyes peeled for it just to try it. For me, the best flavor ice cream is still coffee with semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Nina Hollander, Broker the cashier told me that everyone's been buying the Blue Bell Dr, Pepper flavor!  I can't wait to try it when the family comes over this weekend.

Good morning Kathy. Not a Blue Bell fan but a big Dr. Pepper fan. And yes, once in a great while adding a little vanilla ice cream is a real treat. Enjoy your day.

Wayne Martin I converted my good friend to Blue Bell Homemade vanilla, and she's a huge Ben & Jerry's fan.

Good morning Kathy,

I still like chocolate ice cream the best (although I rarely eat it) my second choice is always vanilla with pralines!

Dorie Dillard Austin TX I'm with you! I very rarely have it but when I do it's chocolate for me.

Hmm, I am not so sure about Dr. Pepper ice cream, but I would give it a try, haha.

Brian England I bought a gallon of it for this Sunday when the family is over. What they don't eat, goes home with someone!!! I'm not keeping it here.

I peeked at the list for each state and notice New York is Cherry. Funny, because Larry and I really enjoy cherry shakes and didn't realized it was a NY favorite!

When it comes to ice cream, I have many favorites.

One of our regular selections is mint chocolate chip.

Kathy Streib I love Ice Cream - Ben and Jerry's has more candy than ice cream

Hagan Daas  is good  Salted Carmel and Rum Raisen- also like Talente Gelato - You can keep the other brands as they have too many additives 

May 26, 2023 09:18 AM

Hannah Williams I like Talente Gelato but never buy it. Because of a certain person in my house, I don't dare have it around! lOL

Hi Kathy - I so remember saying that as kids!  I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!  Blue Bell, yes we have it in stores here but Dr Pepper Ice cream -  I have no idea.  I rarely have a 'little' ice cream but if I did it would be vanilla.  Years ago it would have been chocolate something but not anymore.  I will be buying vanilla ice scream to go along with the Whiskey Bundt Cake I'm making for a friend's birthday this weekend~

Anna Banana Kruchten Phoenix Broker I wonder how many people have never heard of "I scream, you scream....."  I don't do dairy well so I rarely have ice cream but when I's chocolate.

Hi Kathy Streib - Fun post!  I am a Ben & Jerry's ice cream lover.  Ice cream is my downfall.  I do know Blue Bell and would try that Dr. Pepper ice cream and as you suggested...make it a float!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® one of my favorite Blue Bell Ice Cream is their homemade vanilla with real strawberries in it.

I remember as a kid, visiting my great grandmother in Joaquin, Texas. We went to the little store and bought Dr. Pepper. I LOVE that drink and still drink it today (Dr. Pepper zero). I can't eat ice cream but it did catch my attention on the ice cream flavor.

New Hampshire is pumpkin? That just doesn't sound right to me.

My favorite flavor is coffee oreo if I am eating real ice cream.

I usually eat dairy free, though, and my favorite is So Delicous Dairy Free...I'm a fan of most of their flavors!

We don't have Blue Bell ice cream available here.  But, Dr. Pepper ice cream sounds delicious.

Hi Kathy:

Now you make me want ice cream, and there's none in the house! May have to run an errand.

While I have heard of Dr. Pepper I actually have never had it. And I've not heard of Blue Bell. 

I like lots of ice cream flavors and would be hard pressed to pick a fave - chocolate chocolate chip ranks right up there as does butter pecan.
